Abstract:

In order to achieve the development of a working underwater acoustic communications simulator in a short time span Maritime Way Scientific MWS chose to use existing open source software in association with our own signal, statistical, and control support Matlab scripts. The open source software is available online as part of the ONRs Ocean AcousticLibrary httpoalib.hlsresearch.com, which is maintained by Heat, Light and Sound HLS Research, Inc., La Jolla, California. The open source models used by us are Bellhop and Virtex which were also developed by those at HLS. These models, along withour own scripts, allow coverage of a majority of the problems posed within the boundariesof this project.
