This report describes the application of a new technique of digital radio telemetry, based on a recently available wireless Local Area Network Ethernet adapter, to the need for realtime transmission of data from a vertical line array (VLA) of hydrophones to a nearby ship. The report is technical in nature and discusses the design and performance of the system as used during the Barents Sea Polar Front Experiment in August 1992. A key feature of the use of LAN technology in a "telemetry" application is the availability of Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) software for Ethernet hardware that greatly eases the task of achieving error free digital data over a radio link prone to dropouts.

Acoustic field coherence in four-dimensionally variable shallow water environments : estimation using co-located horizontal and vertical line arrays Duda, Timothy F.; Collis, Jon M. (Institute of Applied and Computational Mathematics, 2007-06)The implementation of two- and three-dimensional acoustic receiver arrays is challenging in the ocean environment. Fixed geometry and connectivity can only be built and maintained at great expense. However, such ideal ...
