Underwater Acoustic Modems facilitate network protocol design.
June 1, 2012 -
With S2CR White Line Science Edition, universities and other research facilities can design, test, and implement underwater acoustic network protocols. Underwater acoustic networks connect and coordinate multiple seafloor sensors and autonomous underwater vehicles for real-time data collection, monitoring, exploration, and navigation. Preinstalled on modems, NS-2 framework supports simulation of TCP, routing, and multicast protocols over communication networks.

S2CR White Line Science Edition: EvoLogics GmbH Launches the Special Edition of Underwater Acoustic Modems with Embedded Developer Platform for Network Protocol Design
Berlin, Germany - EvoLogics GmbH, a leading manufacturer of underwater information and communication systems from Berlin, Germany, is proud to present the White Line Science Edition - a new line of S2CR underwater acoustic modems with an embedded network protocol development platform. Intended for universities and other research facilities, the S2CR White Line Science Edition modems are a great tool to effectively design, test and implement underwater acoustic network protocols.
Underwater acoustic networks are an effective wireless solution for multiple maritime and offshore applications, being the enabling technology to connect and coordinate multiple seafloor sensors and autonomous underwater vehicles into a network for real-time data collection, monitoring, exploration, navigation etc.
New underwater networking technologies are in great demand, and network protocols that ensure reliable underwater operations are of growing importance to the industry.
Making a step forward in underwater networking, EvoLogics designed an open environment for network protocol developers, offering the scientific community a flexible framework to test new network protocols on real hardware - the new S2CR White Line Science Edition (S2C R WiSE) acoustic modems facilitate an embedded developer sandbox of up to 32 GB. The EvoLogics WiSE toolchain allows to build custom firmware modules for S2C modems and opens endless opportunities for new implementations.
EvoLogics S2CR WiSE modems are an excellent testbed for new underwater network protocols, as test scenarios for performance evaluation can now run on real hardware in real-world conditions. Moreover, the NS-2 framework is preinstalled on all S2CR WiSE modems. NS-2, a widely used network simulator, supports simulation of TCP, routing and multicast protocols over communication networks. Without rewriting the code, existing NS-2 network protocol scripts can now be run directly on acoustic modems, making S2C WiSE a time- and cost-effective hardware solution that does not require additional coding and eliminates the need to interface each node of the test network to a dedicated host PC with NS-2.
The EvoLogics WiSE line includes the S2CR 48/78 WiSE and S2CR 18/34 WiSE underwater acoustic modems. Implementing the patented S2C technology, these devices offer the scientific community all the benefits of the main EvoLogics S2C R modem range. Both S2CR WiSE modems are available in a variety of configurations to suit a wide range of application scenarios.
New EvoLogics products are targeted for network protocol developers and will be available to universities and other research facilities at special pricing conditions.
EvoLogics GmbH (Berlin, Germany) is a high-tech enterprise, specializing in underwater acoustic communications, acoustic positioning equipment and innovative solutions for robotics.
