Protective Measures Assessment Protocol

 
 

Protective Measures Assessment Protocol

The Navy strives to avoid impacting protected or sensitive marine resources and implements measures to protect those resources during training.

The Protective Measures Assessment Protocol (PMAP) is a software tool the Navy uses prior to conducting training activities. PMAP provides a map that displays the location of the activity relative to any protected or sensitive marine resources in the vicinity. PMAP tailors a report of the specific measures a naval unit must implement to protect marine resources for the actual date, location, and type of activity and ensure compliance with mitigation requirements, permits, and authorizations.
