This report documents the development of supersonic data bases for five military operations areas MOAs and presents a users guide to the two programs that were used to develop the data bases. Data bases were developed for Holloman, Luke, Oceana, Tyndall and Nellis MOAs. These data bases were generated on the Tyndall AFB Cyber Computer using two computer programs MOAOPS and BOOM-MAP developed by BBN Laboratories that extract and analyze data from the Tactical Air Crew Training SystemsAir Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation TACTSACMI manufactured by Cubic Corporation. The TACTSACMI system digitizes various positional and performance parameters of the aircraft on the range at frequent intervals for later replay in graphic or tabular form during aircrew debriefings. The MOAOPS program extracts information from TACTSACMI mission standard data tapes and compiles a library of engineering data concerning the supersonic operations. The BOOM-MAP program calculates various statistics on the supersonic operations. It also calculates expected sonic boom levels on the ground based on the extracted information. The results of the work performed on this contract verify the production capability of the MOAOPS and BOOM-MAP programs for extracting and analyzing data from TACTSACMI data tapes. Output form the BOOM-MAP program in terms of supersonic and boom producing flight track maps and noise contour maps, provide the environmental and range planner with important and useful tools to analyze MOA operations.
