Wireless Subsea Communications Systems Fact Sheet

This project explored the limits and capacity of wireless communications for subsea operations using radio frequency (RF) conduction, which is proven to work over short ranges and various conditions through seawater at relatively high data rates. Recent advances in modulation and channel coding should allow communications through conduction to be highly robust and viable without the limitations of other more commonly used techniques. The goal was to show that RF conduction presents a viable mechanism for communications through saltwater. It involves optimizing the transmitter and receiver design and placement as a function of channel used, and testing and verifying data collection to determine performance characteristics.
