Together with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific (SPAWAR) we released a whitepaper: Adaptive Polling for Reconfigurable Underwater Data Collection Systems

June 20, 2018 by The Scalable Team

This paper was presented at OCEANS’ 18 Conference in Japan. In this paper, we present how advances in technology, systems, computation, and storage have led to smaller, more capable underwater vessels with reduced capital and operating costs. The paper also presents initial performance results from a simulation study and demonstrates that APOLL outperforms CSMA/MACA-based MAC protocol and TDMA in terms of traffic throughput and channel utilization in typical underwater acoustic environments. Download the paper: or contact SCALABLE to learn more.
