OAD continue to evolve WADER, a Sonar Range Prediction and Global Ocean Information system, based on the feedback from the sonar operator community.

New features include:

  • A Batch Mode Editor that enables users to create and save a list of sonars that can be run automatically in any ocean environment
  • Introduction of user-defined depth contours to highlight operational areas of interest
  • User-defined Range Rings on the Main Screen chart, enabling easier evaluation of detection ranges (see image)
  • The ability to save and reload user display settings
  • Climat Panel customisation options to display only the data relevant to the user
  • Main Screen resizing capability to suit any aspect ratio
  • Plus many more graphics, usability and performance improvements


WADER V8.4 is now commercially available from OAD to purchase or lease.
