CRANE-99956
Resource allocation may be decided by algorithms applied to a specific domain to automatically and dynamically distribute resources to applicants. This is especially common in electronic devices dedicated to routing and communication. For example, channel allocation in wireless communication may be decided by a base transceiver station using an appropriate algorithm. Traditional resource assignment or allocation methods are limited.

Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane), has developed and patented a system for assigning a plurality of resources to different targets in near real-time. This technology is an algorithm that evaluates a predetermined fitness function characteristic of a system to find solutions containing optimal resource assignments, maximizing a desired response function on a near real-time basis.

Advantages:
-Provides near real-time response
-Maximizes desired response
-Prioritizes signals according to necessity

Potential Applications:
-Military
-Telecommunications
-Medical
