Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are increasingly being considered for remotely supervised missions, primarily for routine subsea inspection tasks currently performed by tethered remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). This project is a step in the development of a high speed, networked wireless communication capability for AUVs using MIT Sea Grant's software defined Reconfigurable Modem (R-Modem) acoustic communications platform. We have demonstrated a test implementation of live streaming video with a digital camera connected to an R-Modem transceiver; and explored a range of tuning parameters for the video link.
