OPTIMIZING THE AIR TRANSPORT OPERATIONS OF INDONESIAN NATIONAL ARMY-AIR FORCE ON OVERCOMING THE IMPACT OF THE FUTURE NATURAL DISASTERS
The disaster relief action principles would be do it promptly, by all means, and at any cost. These principles also implemented in the quick response action during the operation of search and rescue for the disaster victims of tsunami waves in Aceh a few years ago. For this pupose, the Indonesian National Army deployed an air transfortation operation as a military operation other than war duty. It taok place for three months carrying million of ton cargos and passengers to and fro the disaster areas at Aceh and North Sumatra Province. Although, behe fing in the disaster relief principles, but along with the limitation and searcity of resources, it is not a taboo to work efficiently even in the disaster relief programs. For that reason, the purpose of the research is to find out wether the air transportation operation carried out by the Indonesian Air Force at that time have already performed efficiently. This information could be obtained by obserbing the aircraft movement us during the operation. The information to be compared with the result of simulation of marginal utility mode. As the conclusion is the forms of aircraft movement pattern in efficiently or the optimal condition.
