Dol, H.S. Prior, M.K. Publication year 2017 Abstract There is a growing interest in the use of untethered underwater vehicles. These vehicles require robust and error-free underwater communication for transmission of mission-critical data. In contrast, the requirements for sensor payloads are often less stringent. Depending on the type of data, different Quality-ofService (QoS) demands can be identified. To maximize the bandwidth utilization of underwater communication links, a modulation that provides the possibility to have multiple QoS levels within a single transmission is introduced. This flexible modulation is labelled Multi-Stream Frequency-Repetition Spread Spectrum (MSFRSS) and provides configurable quality-of-service levels for distinct parts of the communicated message. Early channel replay simulations encourage future tests of MSFRSS in alternative configurations and environments Subject Observation, Weapon & Protection SystemsAS - Acoustics & SonarTS - Technical SciencesQuality-of-Service levelsAcoustic underwater communicationsHarbour experimentsReplay simulationsUnderwater vehicles To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:b3106314-66c4-4060-aec8-3877ad6baec9 TNO identifier 867269 Source Oceans 2017 Anchorage IEEE Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
