OAML provides consistency and standardization for all oceanographic and
meteorological programs used by the Navy.
Naval Oceanographic Office, Stennis Space Center, Mississippi.
GFMPL provides meteorological, electromagnetic, oceanographic, hazard
avoidance, and acoustic software for fleet air, surface, amphibious, and undersea
warfare (USW) operations.
Geophysics Fleet Mission Program Library (GFMPL) Summary.
Analyses and predictions of GFMPL are based upon on-scene data, historical
data, platform characteristics, and weapon/sensor characteristics.
The electromagnetic programs of GFMPL are used to predict radar performance
(effectiveness) and calculate radar range.
Naval Search and Rescue (NAVSAR) and Tropical Cyclone.
The COVER program provides the capability to determine how an
electromagnetic (EM) system will perform in either detecting or communicating
with a given target or receiver.
The SSP program must be used with caution in situations where no BT data
extends below 200 meters.
A10. Internet access.
JMV, EOTDA, refractivityprediction programs, GFMPL, programs, and MIDDS
The TESS-NC Unix-based workstation is used to access the Global Command and
Control System-Maritime (GCCS-M) and run the SPPED/ICAPS II Integrated
A13. To assess the refractive effects upon naval surveillance, communications,
electronic warfare, and weapon-guidance systems.
The most significant advantage of AREPS is that it can produce refractive effects
predictions over land.
Visible, infrared, and laser.
A16. EOTDA predictions are based upon meteorological forecasts, target
characteristics, the components of the EO system, and tactics.
NODDS products are normally obtained using standard telecommunications
circuits (commercial/DSN/STU-III). They may also be obtained via NIPRNET
