Abstract
The David Ross Group will develop an innovative, miniaturized low-cost undersea transponder for data transmission over long haul underwater cable systems where the signal is generated from an undersea node and integrated with an undersea transmission system while minimizing the use and number of undersea optical amplifiers (repeaters). The David Ross Group will identify how these technical solutions might be integrated into an underwater distributed network to achieve objective data rates, distances, power consumption, and minimal repeater use. Specifically, the proposed study will focus on developing an undersea transponder and supporting electronics, that meet the minimum requirements, but targets the stretch objectives specified.
