We formulate a dynamic air vehicle assignment prob-
lem to sequentially determine the optimal allocation of
air vehicle and ammunition resources to threat clusters
in an air to ground campaign. A threat cluster in-
cludes a number of different types of threats, which are
assumed to cooperate among themselves when they are
engaged by a team of air vehicles. The objective is to
efficiently allocate the assets to eliminate as many valu-
able threats as possible while minimizing the air vehi-
cle attrition. This problem is formulated as an optimal
control problem, whose exact solution can be obtained
for small size problems by dynamic programming. For
