Abstract
To address the Navy need for network communications between a submarine and a very small UAV, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Submarine-to-UAV Network Communication System (SUNET). This system combines a mobile ad hoc network architecture with our in-house secure chaotic communication methods to offer a high data rate digital radio communication (transmission of video and data) between a submarine and the UAVs located over the horizon (OTH). The result is a 50-200 MBps, low-probability-of-intercept communication in an ad hoc network of multiple UAVs using existing submarine and UAV antennas. The low size, weight, and power (SWaP:
