Proliferation of deployed sea-going autonomous platforms, such as autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), unmanned surface vehicles (USV), and sensor nodes anchored to the seabed, make the deployment of true underwater acoustic networks more and more feasible. An important feature of any network is the ability to synchronize the clocks of the participants, for the purpose of, e.g., time-slotted media access control (MAC) and navigation. Terrestrial clock synchronization protocols, such as the… CONTINUE READING
