Underwater communication networks (UCN) are enablers of current and future military and commercial applications involving undersea exploration, monitoring, and surveillance. Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) hold promise for stealthy low-cost surveillance, particularly in areas where manned undersea platforms cannot be easily deployed, operated, and maintained. Aiming to extend the operational lifetime of UUVs, underwater hubs are being developed for charging UUVs and exfiltrating data from UUVs. As the number and heterogeneity of undersea platforms and infrastructure expected to operate in concert continuous to increase, command, control, and coordination of undersea platforms, and timely and secure transfer of data become increasingly important.
