GPS Operational Performance Mapping Availability Program (OPMAP)
The GPS Operational Performance Mapping Availability Program was built to support an Air Force Space Command initiative to develop a software tool that produces global or regional color maps displaying various space system performance metrics. The geographic maps generated by OPMAP include coastline data. The user can identify the location and geographic distribution of various features in the space system performance metrics based on the data. The tool generates maps for any year and month. The typical metric to be displayed is the rate at which a given service threshold is met. Initially, this tool is intended to handle the four (4) major space force enhancement missions: Satellite Communications, Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT), Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance, and Environmental Monitoring.
