Sonar Range Prediction is a complex process which requires a multitude of data inputs from many sources. Whilst we make every effort to produce a user friendly system, training is advisable to make the most of the software as quickly as possible. OAD provides training courses in both Underwater Acoustics and the use of our proprietary software using highly experienced, military-trained instructors.
The SPUTS database (Sonar Parameters for Unclassified Training) is used exstensively for training courses. SPUTs are a set of fictitious yet realistic sonar parameters which are designed to simulate the operational behaviour of most military sonars without the need to use real, classified sonar parameters.
The following information below outlines our most common courses, however the course content can be modified as required so do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your specific training requirements.
