Abstract : This is the final report of the COMNAVMETOCCOM Independent Model Review Panel (CIMREP) for the Voice of America Coverage Analysis Program (VOACAP), version 05.0119W, as modified by the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SSC-Pacific), Atmospheric Propagation Branch (5528). VOACAP is a tool for predicting the performance of High Frequency (HF) radio communication systems. The authors evaluated VOACAP for possible inclusion in the Oceanography and Atmospheric Master Library (OAML) by (1) using provided and online documentation from HF experts, (2) installing the program on PCs, (3) running a series of test cases and (4) comparing the output results with other HF models and VOACAP versions.
