Abstract:

In January 1991 the Naval Oceanographic and Atmospheric Research Laboratory NOARL Code 252 undertook to investigate for NAVSEA PMS 400D52 the possibility of communicating data through a ships bulkhead without penetrating the bulkhead physically. Four possible methods of transmission were identified ultrasonic, electric current injection, magnetic coupling, and current carrier. Of these, the electric current injection method was selected as the most promising, and a device using this technique was developed.
