Abstract
The need for wi-fi communications and detection capability from a shipboard environment is identified. Several technical challenges are addressed, and solutions are proposed. The use of directional, stabilized antennas for accurate pointing and high gain, and low temeperature devices for noise reduction is discussed. A detailed Phase I technical work plan, and Phase II plans are presented. The work proposed is based on a rigorous and extensive background in operating Wi-Fi in a marine environment. BENEFITS: The operation of Wi-Fi networks in marine, and other high-interference environments. This will lead to new methods for long range, secure communications, and listening capabilities.
