Paper Abstract

Divers executing strategic underwater missions as well as recreational divers have a great need for communication. Divers can communicate between themselves as well as to a surface boat, to share information, perform cooperative maneuvers and call for help. In addition, it would be useful to know the location of all divers relative to the boat. Such capability will allow operators to guide divers in their maneuvers and provide immediate assistance during emergencies. We present the development of communication protocols for text messaging and the development of a relative diver locating system.
