Abstract:

The goal is to use acoustic energy, modern electronics, digital communication theory, and specialized networking techniques for wireless data telemetry and remote control of distributed undersea sensors. This project advances communications technology in support of the scientific objectives of the NOPP Front-Resolving Observational Network with Telemetry FRONT effort. We apply undersea acoustic communication telesonar and seaweb networking now being developed for ocean surveillance and other Naval missions. These technologies provide data telemetry and command and control capabilities for a set of widely spaced oceanographic sensors at an environmentally complex site on the North American continental shelf.
