In this project, the limits of ultrasonic underwater datacommunication concerning bandwidth and distance will be investigated. Parameters will be characterized using theoretical models and empirical measurements. Ultrasonic transducers must be selected. A simulation model of the system will be built.
With this model engineering choices can be made to build a prototype communication system.
