Description: This article examines the problem of choosing a variant of the strike aircraft flight path for damage to ground targets. This task refers to the class of multicriteria optimization tasks and requires significant time and computing resources for its solution. The method of solving this task is to find the optimal route for using a cellular automaton on a three-dimensional grid-gas model. The main difference between the developed method is to clarify the properties of the three-dimensional model of the cellular lattice machine, to develop a new approach to calculating the probability of changing the position of the cell and determining the rules for the transition to neighboring elements and the development of new procedures for the transition to them. The developed method allows to construct models with different degree of detail, which allows to regulate the time of search of solutions and search for solutions in separate areas of space. The method also shows the possibility of taking into account the properties of airspace, for example, areas of increased risk, with permissible risk and with minimal risk.
