Paper Abstract

Recent decades blue-green laser submarine communication (LSC) system has been developed as an important inter-medium transmission method for submarine communication. But the developed LSC system has only one-way communication from an air platform to a submerged platform. In this paper, we introduce a novel optical system, i.e. underwater modulable hollow retro-reflector (UMHRR) in ocean, for a new possible SLC system in future. The new system may establish a round optical link channel and allows for two-way communication from air to submarine and back. Also, we firstly develop an UMHRR for a potential application such as an underwater optical beacon.
