A military contraction of "operational tempo." "'Optempo,' as soldiers refer to the pace of military life, is fast; poetry helps cadets inured to racing from one activity to another uncover those intricate details perceptible only at slower speeds." - The New York Times, September 30, 2007Also see Caerdroia for a good example of usage.
