Abstract: Purpose: The purpose of this Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note (CHETN) is to document and demonstrate the Rapid Operational Access and Maneuver Support (ROAMS) v2.0 computational scripting/application program interface (API) platform. ROAMS provides improved knowledge of potential lines of communication and vessel routes through hydrodynamic modeling and path optimization under a variety of environmental conditions and input-information qualities/sources. Primary focus of this document is given to the implementation of penalty barrier-based path optimization to provide guidance for subsequent work. The platform additionally provides object-oriented, script-based interaction with principal U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) hydrodynamic models.
