First Large-Scale Open Testbed In The Nation For Underwater Networks

An interdisciplinary team of researchers from UConn and three partnering universities is developing a suite of open underwater network testbeds that will be demonstrated along the U.S. East, West and Gulf Coasts, where water quality data will be continuously collected and transmitted to on-shore labs.  The devices can be outfitted with a variety of sensing technologies to capture a variety of data about the aquatic environment, including salinity, pH, temperature, chemicals and pollutants, hypoxia, turbidity and other characteristics.

Dubbed “Ocean-TUNE” (Ocean Testbed for Underwater Networks Experiments), the project was awarded a three-year $2.65 million grant by the National Science Foundation’s Computing Research Infrastructure (CRI) program in June 2012.  UConn’s share of the grant is $1.1 million.
