Abstract

This paper titled “Optimized Flight Mission Planning Using STK & A* Algorithm” presents an application that allows maps, charts, weather, intelligence and aircraft performance data to be used in developing navigation solutions (e.g. routes, approaches, terminal procedures), communication settings, flight/mission calculations (fuel, leg times, etc), and other pertinent aircraft operational data. This applicationincludes visual software tools optimizedfor specific aircraft roles, and automate the computations associated withaircraft specific flight/mission planning. The main aim during a mission planning is to plan an optimized route for the UAV to avoid detection by enemy radars. The UAV route planned must cover maximum area over a desired area of interest. STK (Systems Tool Kit) and A* algorithm is used optimize the mission route.
