Research Institution
The Phase II effort consists of a 12-month Base and two 6-month Options. The Base is centered on the design, fabrication, and test of a prototype projector and power electronics. Testing is planned at NUWC Seneca Lake to evaluate the projector"s electro-acoustic performance. The first Option is geared on the design, fabrication, and test a prototype acoustic communication system that relies on the hardware developed during the Base. Testing is planned at NSWC Lake Pend Oreille to evaluate the communication system"s performance resulting from the transmission of PRN, BPSK, and QPSK waveforms. The second Option considers a system engineering study to transition the prototype communication system for use at the Aloha Cabled Observatory located 100 km from Oahu, HI.
