The US Department of Defense (DoD) must validate all software used for advanced geophysical classification accreditation in accordance with section 5.4.7.2 (a) of the Department of Defense Quality Systems Requirements for Advanced Geophysical Classification. More details on software validation can be found on the DENIX web page.

The chart below provides details on the versions of Oasis montaj and UX-Analyze that have been validated (or are pending validation) by the EDQW for use on Advanced Geophysical Classification (AGC) projects for the US Department of Defense (DoD). The chart includes our recommendation, which is based on the significance of the incremental changes and improvement in the more recent release(s). Please note that upgrading to a new release may require some reprocessing or rework.
