Submarine satellites: Speculation in ocean technology and conservation

Robin M. Dunbar

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The author details possible requirements for extensive ocean environmental monitoring over the next decade, and proposes a submarine satellite system that could be utilized to good effect in these and other international ocean programs. The concept of station-keeping or drifting autonomous underwater vehicles, communicating with one another over deep sound channel paths is described, together with the associated mid-water to surface vessel and mid-water to ocean floor sensor package acoustic links. Comments are made on the vehicle, navigation and position-keeping, and communication techniques.
