"WOSS is a multi-threaded C++ framework that permits the integration of any existing
underwater channel simulator that expects environmental data as input and provides as output
a channel realization.
Currently, WOSS integrates the Bellhop ray-tracing program.
Thanks to its automation the user only has to specify the location in the world and the time where the simulation should take place. This is done by setting the simulated date and the wanted latitude and longitude of every node involved. The simulator automatically handles the rest (see technical description).
WOSS can be integrated in any network simulator or simulation tool that supports C++."
WOSS and WOSS-NS3 are available as git repositories
Users of "WOSS-NS3 Integration Framework" MUST update to version 1.9.0 or greater
WOSS version 1.9.0 or greater is matching the output syntax of the Acoustic Toolbox version cited in the "Recommended libraries" section.
It is strongly advised to upgrade Bellhop library to this version.
Old AT library and syntax can be still used with WOSS, however the syntax configuration must be changed accordingly.
WOSS 1.9.0 introduces support for the GEBCO 2019 and 2020 datasets, which require the NetCDF4 + HDF5 libraries.
from WOSS 1.10.0 support for the WOA 2013 and 2018 SSP datasets has been introduced, which has an increased resolution of 0.25 degrees.
Please see the Technical description for further details.

WOSS bug support mail
This software has been developed by Federico Guerra
and SIGNET lab, University of Padova, in collaboration with
the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (http://www.cmre.nato.int ; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org),
whose support is gratefully acknowledged.
The development of:
- the option to simulate the time evolution of environmental parameters
- the option to model surface waves using realistic wave spectra
has been supported in part by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme, CLAM project (Grant Agreement no. 258359).
