Figure 2-5.—Example of a surface pressure analysis from JMV. OPTIMUM PATH AIRCRAFT ROUTING  SYSTEM  (OPARS) LEARNING  OBJECTIVES:  Identify  the purpose of the Optimum Path Aircraft Routing System  (OPARS).  Recognize  the  OPARS subsystems. Describe the information required to process OPARS flight plans. Identify the publication  that  outlines  OPARS  processing procedures. The  Optimum  Path  Aircraft  Routing  System (OPARS) is a computer program that selects the best (optimum) route and altitude for an aircraft to reach a destination. The primary purpose of OPARS is to provide a flight planning service to the Naval Aviation community  that  minimizes  time  enroute  and  fuel consumption.  The  system  combines  the  latest environmental data with the most fuel efficient flight profile for a specific aircraft, and then produces a customized flight plan for the pilot. An OPARS flight plan acts as a preflight planning aid that serves as a supplement to the DD Form 175-1 Military Flight Weather  Brief.  OPARS  users  connect  with  the  host system at FNMOC via computer modem. OPARS SUBSYSTEMS OPARS is comprised of three sub-systems briefly described  as  follows: OPARS  User  Interface:  Provides  a communications interface for the OPARS user to generate  and  submit  OPARS  requests.  This  is  primarily 2-17
