TAP™ is a terrestrial RF propagation analysis tool for the Windows operating system.

Available since the early 1990s, TAP™ is currently in use in all 50 United States, plus over 70 countries on all seven continents.

TAP is designed to be powerful, flexible, and easy-to-use. TAP users can always understand and explain study results. This open transparency and copious documentation gives managers, clients, and other decision-makers a high level of confidence in the results.

It is important to note that TAP contains no proprietary algorithms or calculations. All propagation modules and ancillary calculations are based on widely published, industry accepted (and, in some cases, regulatory body mandated) models. In fact, every calculation contained within TAP is documented on this website and the references cited herein. Moreover, all input and output data formats (e.g., elevation data, land use data, RF facilities data, antenna pattern files, graphic files, etc.) are open source industry standards.

TAP Modules

TAP™ is comprised of individually licensed software modules, which may be purchased in almost any combination depending on user requirements for area coverage studies, path profiles, interference studies, presentation of results, and budget.
