Abstract:

This document reports on the results of a series of experiments performed in June through August 1975 at Santa Catalina Island. The purpose of these experiments was to determine the feasibility of satellite-to-submarine communications. The experiments addressed the propagation aspects of the problem through the water, through the airsea interface for both the uplink and downlink. Certain aspects of cloud penetration were also considered. The relationship of radiative transfer theory to this problem was also addressed.
