Abstract:

The long term goal of this program is to develop underwater acoustic modem technology for real-time wireless transfer of high-definition images and sonar data over short-to-medium range operations in shallow water. A specific deployment goal is an acoustic tether that provides human-in-the-loop capability for an AUV performing a ship hull inspection.
