About Underwater Acoustic Modem

A modem (modulator-demodulator) is a device that modulates one or more wave signals to encode digital information for transmission. It demodulates signals to decode the transmitted information.

The objective is to generate a signal that can be transmitted and decoded easily to reproduce the original data. Modems are used with any means of transmitting analog signals, from RF to microwaves to LEDs.

A common type of modem is one that modulates the digital data of a computer to produce electrical signals for transmission through telephone lines. The signals are demodulated by another modem at the receiver side to recover the original digital data.

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increase in adoption of underwater acoustic modems in naval defense. The naval defense has been one of the major users of underwater communication systems.

These systems are used in applications that include submarine communications; diver communications; and remote underwater monitoring, command, and control. Since 2013, NATO member nations have strategically strengthened their underwater defense and security and have collaboratively responded to threats from Russia and China.

These countries are focusing on strengthening their naval defense and underwater patrolling. Various underwater submarine devices and naval bases use acoustic modems for underwater communication.

Underwater acoustic modems are used to transmit data wirelessly in water or marine surroundings. With the use of underwater modems, consumers can monitor, navigate, and communicate under water.

The use of technologies, such as GPS and Wi-Fi, beneath the water surface has been made possible through the introduction of underwater modems, which are better known as acoustic modems.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Multipath reflections distort transmitted signals. Multipath reflections happen when various signals reach the receiving antenna by two or more paths.

It is caused by atmospheric ducting, ionospheric reflection and refraction, and reflection from water bodies and terrestrial objects, such as mountains and buildings. This results in a loss of signals and decreases the efficiency of modems under water.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
