  2. Optimizing Weapons System and Sensor Pairing Through Efficient Binary Polynomial Optimization

    SBC: DYNAMIC IDEAS LLC            Topic: MDA12004

    Exact formulations of weapon-to-threat assignment problems have long been identified as binary polynomial optimization problems which are theoretically difficult (NP-hard), thus previous research for implementation in the area has focused on heuristic solution methods or methods which compromise full formulation with limits on assignment. The introduction of sensor pairing further complicates for ...
