The synoptic or real-time BATHY collectives are
transmitted in the raw JJXX format, not passing through
quality control procedures as do those that are extracted
from the historical data base.
Now lets look at the Mad Operational Effectiveness
(MOE) charts, which are discussed in more detail in
Environmental Effects on Weapons Systems and Naval
Warfare (U), (S)RP1.
MAD OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Explain the
purpose of MOE charts. Describe the method
used to obtain MOE charts.
MOE charts are prepared for selected areas
throughout the world, and they display predicted
environmental magnetic noise levels.
MOE charts are available through the DMA Catalog
of Maps, Charts, and Related Products, Part 2 -
Hydrographic Products. NAVOCEANO RP 28, MAD
Tactical Use of MOE Charts, is also available from
Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) distribution centers.
In this chapter, we have discussed applications,
limitations, assumptions, and functional descriptions of
just a few of many computer and climatological
products available to aid the Aerographers Mate in the
analysis and forecasting of oceanographic conditions,
thus ensuring optimum support of operations at sea.
