Description: The object of the study is the search of the safe path of military units from the initial position to the final one. The hybrid method for finding a safe route, taking into account the fire and defense potential at various sites is developed in the article. The basis of the method is the use of root algorithms and the bacterial search algorithm. The result of the work is the development of the model. An analysis of the results shows that the level of threat of damage reaches the minimum mark.
Keywords: bacterial search algorithm, a safe path, forecasting solutions, cluster coverage
