We have developed path-planning techniques and tools to look for paths through minefields. Our techniques seek to balance the length and risk associated with different routes through a minefield. Our methods are intended to provide battlegroup commanders powerful new tools to evaluate alternative routes while searching for low risk paths. It is well known how to find the path of shortest distance, and well known how to find the path of least risk. However, to optimize both criteria at once is a… CONTINUE READING
