Abstract
The proposed Phase II STTR program will implement forward-error correction and other processing, as well as coherent transceiver operation, in order to improve the performance of underwater communications systems. Significant reduction in the bit-error rate will be demonstrated under both shot-noise and ambient-noise limited conditions.
