Latest Version: WADER V8.009

‘There is general agreement among the users that WADER support is excellent’.
UK MOD Report, 2009

With the nature of technological change, it is essential to keep all equipment and software up to date to maintain operational readiness. WADER‘s Annual Upgrade Plan (AUP) meets this requirement with minimal impact on the user. AUP customers can be guaranteed assistance whenever or wherever they may be.

The upgrade plans have been highly successful over the years, particularly among Naval users. The AUP provides users with:

  • Email & telephone support available 24/7
  • Support response time target of less than 12 hours
  • Support from the author(s) and/or quality control team
  • Annual software updates with incremental updates as required
  • Data upgrades when new data becomes available
  • Rapid upgrading of existing software if necessary via web download
