P14251: Acoustic Underwater Communications

Systems Design

Table of Contents


The following papers and documents were the highlights of our exploration of current research or systems in underwater acoustic communication.

Underwater Acoustic Communication

Recent Advances in Underwater Acoustic Communications & Networking

Point-to-point underwater acoustic communications using spread-spectrum passive phase conjugation

Short Range Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks

Challenges for Efficient Communication in Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks

Concept Development (generation, improvement, selection)

Our team used a morphological chart followed by a Pugh analysis to help with concept generation. After performing this analysis, we still disregarded what the Pugh analysis said was best due to the constraints on the system and project. Morphological Chart
