This project involves collaboration by the U.S. and Singapore in advancing state-of-the-art, through-water acoustic communications and networking technology. The goals are to:
- Study noisy underwater environments.
- Achieve acoustic communications through adverse channels.
- Integrate U.S. "Seaweb" and Singapore "UNet" networks.
- Demonstrate in situ environmental and surveillance sensor networks in Singapore Strait.
- Enable distributed wireless architectures for maritime domain awareness (MDA) and undersea warfare (USW).
Persistent maritime surveillance is a challenging problem that requires the deployment of autonomous underwater sensor networks. Project MISSION will develop and test national through-water acoustic communications and networking capability with emphasis on operations in noisy environments and cross-nation interoperability.
