Sonar Range Prediction Software

to Aid Sonar Development

Our sonar range prediction tools:

Ocean Acoustic Developments Ltd (OAD) produces specialist software applications that enable the user to analyse the underwater environment on a Global basis to improve situational awareness. Our products, WADER and HARCAM, include all the required data sets for:

  • Sonar range prediction
  • Probability of detection
  • Underwater acoustic modelling
  • Propagation loss analysis
  • Ocean environment evaluation

Our software is designed, developed and produced in-house which enables us to provide an exceptional level of support. The embedded propagation loss models have been independently verified by the UK MoD.

With a range of applications and over 30 years’ experience, our sonar performance prediction systems have been used fleet-wide by the UK Royal Navy since 1995. Our overseas customers include Governments and Scientists spanning the Globe.

‘WADER is mandated as the current acoustic model for us throughout the [UKRN] FLEET’
