Ocean’s High-Speed Internet

There’s a place where the internet, Wi-Fi, and GPS do not exist. Communication is haphazard: Sometimes messages arrive different times at the same place, the same time at different places, or not at all. It’s not North Korea, or a time portal to the 1980s. It’s anywhere, today, under the ocean.

Several different Unmanned Surface Vessels (USVs), Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), equipped with different sensors and acoustic payloads, are being used together in the seventh annual edition of REP16-Atlantic exercise, a joint exercise of the Portuguese Navy, the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), and the University of Porto. From 5 to 31 July 2016, off the coast of Portugal, the Portuguese Navy, the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation and the University of Porto operated together in the maritime exercise which also marks the first international at-sea campaign for NRV Alliance under the Italian Flag.

REP16-Atlantic stands for Recognized Environmental Picture (REP) Atlantic 2016 and it is being conducted south of Sesimbra and Setubal. It also involves participants from the Belgian Navy, Oceanscan (Portugal), as well as observers from Naval Undersea Warfare Center (USA), NASA (USA), and European Project H2020 JPI Oceans.
