Innovation for the most challenging environments.
Numerica has worked in the area of resource management (i.e., sensor management and battle management) for over a decade. During this time, we have focused on stressing scenarios in which resources could easily become overtasked. In this challenging regime, offline plans and heuristics may fail to provide acceptable performance. In contrast, Numerica’s online optimization-based approach to resource management seeks an optimal resource allocation based on current situational awareness. Numerica’s resource manager is computationally efficient, which allows us to re-plan frequently as more information becomes available. Our resource manager also plans over a receding horizon and incorporates uncertainty from the underlying optimization problem, thereby avoiding asset allocations that are myopic or fragile. Our resource manager is model-based, which makes it straightforward to incorporate new assets and various network architectures. Our resource manager can also accept operator input, such as allocation constraints and task prioritization.
