Abstract

Due to the Doppler effect in waves, one can't efficiently transmit signals underwater. This paper takes you to novel approaches that utilize sonar conversion techniques as well as different UART communication methods and software defined networking mechanisms, in order to build underwater wireless networks. The case for UWNs being utilized for oceanic colonization is also presented, as well as how this applies to the creation of "Aquatic IOT type technologies" and new forms of telemetry. Presented in this paper are concepts that were deployed by the Stark Drones Corporation in competing for various challenges such as "The Internet of H2O Challenge" and GigabitDCx. Also presented, is a proposal to apply these technologies for monitoring lake contamination and various forms of e-coli buildup as well as phosphorus run-ons. These networks allow for a cleaner, more sustainable and observable ocean.
