Planning “Safe” Routes for Transporting Protected Materials through an Alient Area

  • John Karkazis
Conference paper


The problem regards the transportation of goods or materials from a point 0 (origin) to a point D (destination) on the plane with transportation route having to pass through an unfriendly area. The term “unfriendly” regards a fixed point C on the plane that represents installation or center point of activities that may create damage to these goods or materials. This point will be called thereon “damage source” (abbr. d.s.). possible applications may involve flights of planes over an alient area where d.s. may represent sites of enemy missile batteries.
