With the war in Ukraine still being played out in all its raw brutality, it is perhaps premature to arrive at any meaningful conclusions about the conflict’s long-term impact on
Aircraft Loading Optimization
Aircraft Loading Optimization
Aircraft loading optimisation is a key part of logistics planning and execution. In a military situation, there are often hazardous or dangerous materials and supplies involved and this makes a fully optimised, secure aircraft load even more critical.
The Weight and Balance and Centre of Gravity (CG) calculations are some of the most important, affecting both performance and stability of the aircraft. Different aircraft specifications must also be considered in addition to the type of load, whether a single type or multiple:
- Military vehicles
- Weaponry and ammunition
- And more.
Loading aircraft to an optimal plan, considering all the available data including practical and logistical constraints, can contribute significantly to efficiencies in both operational productivity and bottom-line cost. When compliance and security are also factored into the already complex logistics planning process, greater efficiency can be achieved by the use of aircraft loading software or a calculator to help automate optimisation planning on a detailed scale.
What is an aircraft loading calculator?
An aircraft loading calculator can help military planners to create the optimal plan for aircraft load balancing. This powerful feature in CLOS works alongside the Pallet Loading Calculator, which ensures pallets are loaded to the optimal capacity. Using this detailed information, the aircraft loading calculator then calculates the most efficient cargo schedule for loading optimised pallets to one or several aircraft.
CLOS helps to manage:
- Weight and size limit for each aircraft
- Weight balance: length and width (momentum admissible range)
- Compatibility between items and aircraft or position
The power of an aircraft loading simulator
A part of the power of CLOS revolves around simulation, which offers a new level of load optimisation. CLOS’ Machine Learning technology uses complex algorithms to deliver potential scenarios and this makes collaborative decision making much simpler.
Utilizing some of the most intelligent technologies, CLOS uses all the available data and constraints to create 3D imagery of the optimised load. This type of aircraft loading simulator allows variants to be added to the scenario, which can provide a unique insight into loading like never before, making last minute changes to mission planning, destination or load fast and efficient and strengthening the ability to collaborate under pressure.
