Theamcodeaf is a protocol used to tersely communicate entity information with a high degree of resistance to interception.

The name is derived from the two originating developers of the protocol, Al McCallum and Adam Ford, though others have contributed since it's original inception.

The protocol syntax is defined as a location indicator followed by a number of optional descriptor/descriptor-intensity pairs and potentially a number of response codes from the receiver(s).

The angle indicator is the code D followed by a decimal to indicate angle (IA) relative to transmitter.

The formula to calculate IA is angle[degrees]/90+1, with immediately ahead being zero degrees (0/90+1=1).

Descriptors/descriptor-intensity pairs take the form of a number of optional statement-clauses, formed by concatenating a item code and an intensity number (0 being extreme positive, 9 being extreme negative).

Item codes include, top-down:
(S is used as a general statement approximating the other items codes above).

Theamcodeaf is a bidirectional protocol, with various response codes being used to form short message exchange blocks.
