Roles in the project
TITLE: Underwater Acoustic Network
GOAL: Development of a network of surface,
submerged and aerial sensors for the
protection of critical infrastructures,
such as off-shore platforms and
Graal Tech acted as a sub-contractor of ISME (Interuniversity Center on Integrated Systems for Marine Environment, Italy).
Two FOLAGA modules were realized, each one containing a CPU with the UAN mission software and a new acoustic modem developed by Kongsberg and under testing within the project.
Several communication tests in different places (Pianosa-Italy, Faro-Portugal, Trondheim-Norway) were then performed with two FOLAGA, for assessing the performance of the overall acoustic network in different operative conditions.
