Underwater wireless modem
An Australian company, DSPComm has developed the
Aquacomm underwater acoustic data modem. The Aquacomm modem provides highly reliable underwater communications at a fraction of the cost of competitive products.
With a reliable wireless communications system such as DSPComm's AquaComm, it is possible to have a communications system for divers so that diving is made safer. This means the surface can keep track of the diver and send messages to other divers or send assistance should a diver get into trouble.
AquaComm could revolutionise the diving industry making it safer and more accessible to a wider audience. The industry also benefits from lower insurance and operational costs. Some of the applications that AquaComm can be used for in diving are:
Communications with the surface and other divers
Diver being able to send
distress calls Diver recall and assistance provision
Real-time instructions and data to divers carrying out complex underwater tasks such as on subsea oil rigs
Diver tracking and sending position information to divers
AQUAComm underwater wireless modem is available as a packaged, ready to go acoustic modem system, or as an OEM board set for OEM product manufacturers and system integrators.
DSPComm Pty Ltd is Electronic Parts and Equipment, Network Hardware & Cables company, located in Perth, Western Australia. The company's Aquacomm modems employ the latest Digital Signal Processing technology and are used by defense organizations, research institutions and commercial operators globally. By developing a communication interface between the Aquacomm and Iridium telemetry hardware, Fastwave has enabled near real time transmission of data to and from subsea installations anywhere in the world.
In 2006, Planet Ocean Ltd signed the agreement with the Acoustic Modem innovator DSPcomm, to represent DSPComm as the authorized distributor in the UK and Ireland. The Planet Ocean announced they believe that the "approach taken by DSPComm, provides the most reliable and cost effective solution to data telemetry through water". According to the
Planet Ocean Newsletter, "with the availability of reliable surface telemetry choices such as Satellite, radio, GSM, GPRS etc., the current trend towards real-time availability of data continues and demands reliable through water data communications to complete the chain. DSPComm provides this in a technically superior, and cost effective way". "With the ever increasing demand for real time Met-Ocean data and choices available for reliable and secure surface telemetry; AQUACOMM provides the missing link from seabed to desk", states further Planet Ocean.
