Experimental Evaluation of RF Modems for Use in Fleets of Multiple Cooperating Autonomous Undersea Vehicles

This paper presents the results of the experimental evaluation of three radio frequency (RF) modems for use as communication infrastructure among multiple surfaced cooperating autonomous undersea vehicles (AUVs), gateway buoys, and land or ship based operators. RF modems are inherently more complex than their wired counterparts which makes it difficult to… (More)
