This task provides government oversight, execution and transition options for a project with Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab and an Other Government Agency (OGA). The project fills a current critical technology gap to deliver underwater communications capabilities over long ranges from hundreds of yards to 100 nautical miles or more. The objective is to attain reliable transmission and reception of a limited message. mu APL will perform modeling and analysis of in-situ data, leverage underwater field tests, build a prototype, and conduct a limited capability demonstration.
Underwater operations with manned or unmanned vehicles are frequently in need of communications to coordinate operations. It is desirable to communicate commands to these personnel or vehicles from a significant range and to be able to provide unique commands with a very high probability of success and a very low false alarm rate. The control signals and detection system must be appropriately designed for reliability even in harsh propagation environments. Undersea Critical Message Transfer will benefit the Submarine communities and Naval Special Warfare commands by developing underwater short messaging capability. The results of this research will be pertinent to any application in which autonomous underwater vehicles or platforms can benefit from remote, short to long-range message transfer.
