We consider the problem of navigating a military aircraft in a threat environment to its final destination while minimizing the maximum threat level and the length of the aircraft path. The proposed method to construct optimal low-risk aircraft paths involves a simple geometric procedure and is very computationally efficient. The effectiveness of the developed algorithm is illustrated by a number of examples and comparisons with a fuzzy logic based algorithm.
