Abstract: Several decades of research in underwater communication and networking has resulted in novel and innovative solutions to combat challenges such as long delay spread, rapid channel variation, significant Doppler, high levels of non-Gaussian noise, limited bandwidth and long propagation delays. Many of the physical layer solutions can be tested by transmitting carefully designed signals, recording them after passing through the underwater channel, and then processing them offline using appropriate algorithms. However some solutions requiring online feedback to the transmitter cannot be tested without real-time processing capability in the field. Protocols and algorithms for underwater networking also require real-time communication capability for experimental testing. Although many modems are commercially available, they provide limited flexibility in physical layer signaling and sensing. They also provide limited control over the exact timing of transmission and reception, which can be critical for efficient implementation of some networking protocols with strict time constraints. To aid in our physical and higher layer research, we developed the UNET-2 software-defined modem with flexibility and extensibility as primary design objectives. We present the hardware and software architecture of the modem, focusing on the flexibility and adaptability that it provides researchers with. We describe the network stack that the modem uses, and show how it can also be used as a powerful tool for underwater network simulation. We illustrate the flexibility provided by the modem through a number of practical examples and experiments. © 2012 IEEE.
