Abstract:

Our long-terms goals are to develop an ice penetrating communication buoy for use in the Arctic. The buoy will be launched by the underwater vehicle, float to the surface, melt thought the ice, deploy antennas, and communicate via satellites. The long-term goals include providing two-way communications between the underwater vehicle and the buoy.
