Abstract
The need for wireless data transfer through the pressure hull of a submarine is presented. A method to achieve high rate data transfer wirelessly is proposed. Such a method uses a transmitter and receiver featuring innovative characteristics. It can be retrofit into vessels with no additional penetrations in the hull. In Phase I, RF simulations will be developed, along with prototypes of key elements of the design. In Phase II, the system will be built and tested in representative environments.
