provides acoustic raytrace diagrams and propagation
loss curves. TOAS computes active and passive USW
range predictions by using operator-input data and a
sensor/platform data base.
Hazard Avoidance-This option contains the
Naval Search and Rescue (NAVSAR) program and the
Tropical Cyclone program. NAVSAR provides
information and planning assistance for search and
rescue incidents at sea, such as search probability maps
(fig. 2-1). The Tropical Cyclone program tracks
tropical cyclone movements and conditions on an
Input data is provided by
tropical cyclone messages.
Utilities-The Utility option contains a map
utility function that provides the user with a
These maps are available in
different projections. The utilities option also provides
a briefing support tool (only with GFMPL NT).
