Underwater laser communication is one solution for secure, reliable, and high speed underwater communication. Currently, Boeing uses strictly acoustic transmissions to communicate with their unmanned, underwater vehicle. While this is reliable, the data transfer rate is slow. Using the current housing that was developed for acoustic transmission, an optical transmission device must be developed. Using a high powered laser to transmit data will greatly improve the data transfer rate from the acoustics.
The goals of this project are to research and apply knowledge in order to produce a proof of concept of underwater laser communication which will supply both fast and secure data transfer rates in both the long and short ranges. In addition, the concept must be easy to implement and maintain while still falling within the proposed price budget.
Before modifying your team's website, take a few minutes to explore the directory structure for your team's EDGE project and consider how you want to organize your files. The directory structure can also be accessed by clicking on the /public/ link at the top left of the page

Content Guidelines: Use these links below (or customize with links of your own, if appropriate for your project) to guide you in populating your website. A few points to consider:
- Be aware of any information that your sponsor might not want publicly available. You can use the private directory for this information, and it will be available only to those users with Guest access to your site.
- Do not post any files on your site that are not yours, unless you are certain that they are in the public domain or you have received permission to post them. Examples of files that you should avoid posting are copies of published papers, standards documents, textbook chapters/excerpts, or copyrighted images. If you have received a .pdf of a paper through Interlibrary Loan, or purchased an ASTM or ISO standard, you may post it in the private directory, where only your team and guide will have access to it.
- If you are including contact information for people that would otherwise not be publicly available, make sure you have their permission. For example, your faculty advisor's email address and office phone number are already publicly available on the KGCOE website, and is fine to post. However, if he or she has provided a cell phone number to the team, that is most likely not public information and should not be posted without explicit permission.
