Abstract:

The project started on 040110, and the reporting period covers from 090110 to 083111. The main objective for this period was to gain deep insight on the propagation phenomena that most affect underwater acoustic systems, based on the experimental data made available to us. Key behaviors have been sought and quantified, including sparsity, stationarity, and predictability. Insights on how these channel properties can be used for system design have been developed. Some application examples where this understanding can be productively used have been considered, including adaptive modulation, image coding, and routing.
