Help your customers visualize real coverage problems. Show zoning boards why a particular transmitter site is superior...

  • Intermodulation Products Module

    Intermodulation Products Module

    The Intermodulation Products module is used to compute intermodulation products as a function of frequencies and other transmitter and receiver specs entered manually or imported from a database. After executing the study, the intermod report generator filters and sorts results in order to isolate intermod problems that are likely to occur.

  • Basic Mapping Module

    Basic Mapping Module

    The Basic Mapping Module is the foundation module of the Terrain Analysis Package (TAP™). This module provides access to topographic data files of many common formats, including Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) derived from USGS 3-second, NGDC 30-second data, USGS 30 meter data and the newer NED 1-second, 1/3-second, and 1/9 second data, as well as Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) Digital Terrain Elevation Data (DTED) files with 3-second,...

  • RF Facilities Module

    RF Facilities Module

    The RF Facilities Module is used to build up a database of both fixed location and mobile radio transmitting and receiving facilities. This includes templates of typical configurations of antennas, transmission line, transmitters and receivers to be recalled for use at a later date to save time in data entry when setting up RF studies. This fixed facility database can also be populated directly from imported data previously entered into EXCEL, Access...

  • Shadow Mapping Module

    Shadow Mapping Module

    The Shadow Map Module identifies locations that:  1) are shadowed (obscured) by terrain or obstructions;  2) have line of sight, but obstructions within the specified (e.g., 0.5 first) Fresnel zone for a specific frequency, and 3) have clear line of sight with no obstructions within the specified Fresnel zone.  For specified transmit and receive antenna heights, the shadowed areas around a site are clearly identified.

  • Stacked Antenna Module

    Stacked Antenna Module

    The Stacked Antenna module will add multiple vertically-stacked horizontal plane directional antenna patterns (with different powers and major lobe azimuths) and calculate an approximate composite pattern. Propagation modules can use this resultant antenna pattern for computing field strength values.  It is not to be used with horizontal arrays.

  • Land Use Module

    Land Use Module

    The Land Use module imports USGS National Land Cover Database (NLCD) files and Global Land Cover (GLC) files and uses them in the radio coverage predictions and link analyses. Loss values may be defined for any frequency ranges for each specified type of land use to permit the inclusion of localized environmental conditions in predicted system performance. Recommended loss values are readily available. The USGS NLCD files categorize land use...

  • Topo Utilities Module

    Topo Utilities Module

    The Topo Utilities module will import USGS formatted ASCII files in their 3″ and 30 meter DEM resolutions and convert them to the TAP™ binary format for use in TAP™. An editor for TAP™ binary formatted topo data files (30″, 3″ and 30 meter) may be used to modify the contents of these files to make individual corrections of anomalies in these files. A viewer will graphically display any of these TAP™ binary...

  • VHF/UHF Reliability Module

    VHF/UHF Reliability Module

    The VHF/UHF Reliability module provides a flexible, easy-to-use tool for designing and evaluating link reliability in both UHF and VHF bands. It provides calculations of received signal level and fade margin. Using the flexibility of the RF facilities database in TAP, transmit and receive sites can be evaluated in different combinations of locations and hardware configurations to find the best design for each site and the best overall route for...

  • Microwave Reliability Module

    Microwave Reliability Module

    The Microwave Reliability module provides a flexible, easy-to-use tool for designing and evaluating microwave link reliability. It provides calculations of various models of rain attenuation up to 100 GHz, air absorption, path climate and terrain factors, fade margin, reliability, outage, frequency and space diversity improvement. Performance can be calculated for both digital and analog links. Using the flexibility of the RF facilities database in...

  • Reflection Analysis Module

    Reflection Analysis Module

    The Reflection Analysis module will locate potential reflection points along a path and evaluate the potential destructive interference on the received signal. For each point along the path, the antenna heights and path elevation at the point are used with Figures 7A and 7B from Lenkurt. The reflection point distance for that path elevation is determined for both 2/3 (Figure 7A) and 4/3 (Figures 7B) earth curvature.

  • AutoPath Module

    AutoPath Module

    The AutoPath module enables TAP to automate setting up path specifications eliminating manual data entry. The program can then plot a path profile for each specified path, as well as compute the field strength value at the end of the path. Path information can be defined from a single transmitter site, or for a different transmitter site for every path. The path information (end point coordinates, antenna heights, earth curvature, transmitter ERP,...

  • Aggregate Coverage Module

    Aggregate Coverage Module

    The Aggregate Coverage module takes the TAP signal strength results from multiple area coverage studies and calculates a new resultant area coverage. This aggregate coverage reflects the combination of multi-site and/or multi-frequency area coverages in a particular region to provide best server net coverage, as well as Simulcast Delay Spread (SDS) coverage. Areas of specific carrier to interference levels (C/I) may be calculated with this module and...

  • AutoCoverage Module

    AutoCoverage Module

    The AutoCoverage module enables TAP to automate setting up coverage specifications, thereby eliminating manual data entry. The program can then calculate and plot a coverage for each set of specifications. The facility information (geographic coordinates, antenna heights, transmitter ERP, etc.) can be entered manually into TAP, or you imported from another source, such as a spreadsheet or database.
