Abstract:

The report covers the development of a light-coupled through-the-hull information transmission system. It describes the development of a light-emitting diode transmitter, a photodiode receiver, and a 6-bit, digital, time division multiplex system that uses the transmitter and receiver to demonstrate information transmission via a light beam. The final information transmission system covered in this report is the 64-bit command and control system used on NUCs transparent hull submersible Makakai. This system uses a modulated light beam and is capable of transmitting all of Makakais command and control signals through the submersibles 2.5-inch-thick transparent acrylic hull. Author
