The purpose of this paper is to describe a communications analysis tool, referred to as OPAR, that can be used in support of both in-field demonstrations and large-scale simulation activities. Using overhead imagery as a backdrop, OPAR provides a graphical user interface that allows the user to quantify the source/destination path attenuation in a mobile, ad-hoc communications network, taking into account obstructions due to foliage and buildings.
