The Micron Modem is an exciting development in the field of through-water communications; providing a robust spread spectrum data transmission from an extremely compact unit.
With a range of up to 500m (500m horizontal & 150m vertical), the Micron Modem has been designed to provide a reliable data link for through-water communications where there are limitations on space and/or power. Suitable for use as a standalone system or part of an AUV control system.
The Micron Modem provides robust spread spectrum data transmission from an extremely compact and low-cost unit. Due to its miniature size and low weight, the Micron Modem is suitable for a host of potential subsea data transfer applications that were previously impractical or uneconomic with larger, more expensive systems.
The system is able to transmit a maximum data rate of 40 bits per second, making it suitable for a range of through-water, low data rate transfer requirements.
