AbstractThrough this effort, Materials Systems Inc. and its teams, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Woods Hole Analytical Sciences, will develop an Ultra High Frequency (0.5-1 MHz) Acoustic Modem for transmitting information through ocean acoustic channels at bit rates of approximately 500 Kbps over ranges from 10 to 100 meters. The MSI concept utilizes its expertise in design and development of piezocomposite transducer arrays to fabricate a modem with compact packaging, wide bandwidths, and a variety of directional characteristics. In this program, the MSI team will design and simulate a UHFAM as well as build a sub-scale prototype and perform in-water testing.
