Underwater Modems: Introduction
Underwater modems, also known as acoustic modems, are used to transmit communication signals underwater. Underwater modems convert digital signals into special sound signals that can be transmitted underwater, making underwater communication possible. The working of underwater modems involves modulation and demodulation of communication signals under the water surface, which is different than that takes place on the land. Players in the underwater modems market are developing advanced technologies to improve the quality of underwater wireless data transmission.
Electromagnetic waves are commonly used for data transmission on the land and in the space, though it is highly unsuitable for underwater applications. Stakeholders in the underwater modems market are developing underwater modems that can be used in autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs). The sound signals transmitted using underwater modems mainly depend on three factors: the hydrostatic pressure of water, its salinity, and the temperature of water.
The underwater modems market is gaining momentum with the recent developments in underwater communication technologies. Players in the underwater modems market are concentrating on research & developments in technologies to eliminate challenges in underwater modems and to develop high-quality signal transmitters and receivers to enhance the efficiencies of underwater communications. Furthermore, market players are incorporating advanced technologies to design highly efficient underwater modems suitable for long-distance underwater communication applications.
