Paper Abstract

Utilizing quasi-static AC magnetic fields as the channel, Magneto-Inductive Systems Limited (MISL) has developed a group of unique communication, signaling and navigation systems. We refer to this technology as magneto-inductive (MI). The physical properties of magnetic fields enable these systems to operate through any natural medium or medium boundary. Working with the U.S. Navy's Coastal Systems Station, MISL has conducted several tests and evaluations of MI system components operating in Very Shallow Water, Surf Zone and Beach Zone environments.
