OAD WADER V8.3 Environment Screen - sonar range prediction software

Environment Screen in More Detail (Learn More)

The DYNAMIC DATA control is used to upload water column data – temperature, salinity and sound speed profiles – in DTSV, JJYY, JJVV or CPD format. Users have the opportunity to review and edit the profiles they have uploaded before merging them to the track for analysis.

WADER uses tracks (range over which propagation loss calculations is required) as the basis for further calculations. The user marks a track on the Main Screen and this track is displayed on the track display chart (bottom left graphic).

Water Column/Seabed tabs display an analysis of the environment at the marker line.

The marker line can be moved within the Cross Section viewer and both the profile and the profile analyses (layer depth, depth excess, CZ potential and sound channel analysis) will update accordingly.

The TIME FILTER control is where the user selects the time period within which water column data is displayed for insertion in the selected environment.

The BEARING control is where the user selects the marked track or defines a specific bearing. Bearings are preset at 15 degree intervals.
