Description of Work: 

Objectives:

This project is part of a larger program to build a low-cost, large-scale, high-capacity underwater sensor network consisting of thousands of nodes. The aim of this project is to understand the bounds on the performance of underwater networks, and to develop better networking protocols.

Description of Work:

  • Apply ideas from information theory to underwater networks
  • Investigate scalability of networking protocols for underwater networks
  • Develop improved protocols for underwater networks.
