Optimal Control for Smokescreen Release Based on Numerical Simulation: Challenges and Theoretical Framework


This paper analyses the key issues and challenges of the smokescreen release optimal control under complex terrains and meteorological conditions, and proposes a dynamic model based theoretical framework that integrates the smoke release equipments, the release time, the release positions, different ways to release smoke and launch attacks, various terrains and meteorological conditions and other factors so as to determine the appropriate smokescreen release plans through the rapid inverse for various threats and battlefield environments and to conduct realtime simulation and evaluation. This paper provides a theoretical basis for the smokescreen release optimal control.
