Abstract:

The ultrasonic data link concept described in this report will provide a link through a shipss structure between warning sensors and a ships damage control center that is uninterruptible by fires or explosions. This concept is also compatible with other proposed data bus concepts and allows for graceful degradation. Included are the results of measurements made aboard Navy and Coast Guard ships of several important parameters that affect the ultrasonic data link performance.
