Call for papers: Advances in Underwater Signal Processing for SONAR, AUV and Communications Applications

In recent decades, the advances in the theory and applications of underwater acoustic communication systems and submarine networks have been enormous in different research fields, such as: remote control of AUV/ROV and surveillance, communication between human operators, SONAR, disaster detection and warning, search and rescue, etc.

This Special Issue aims to bring together contributions related to the subject. The invitation for contributions is addressed at manuscripts in the form of research articles, review articles, and case study investigations that combine theoretical research and applications related to the underwater acoustics for  SONAR, AUV and communications. Moreover, submissions on real applications and simulations in different environments as well as on the effectiveness of the applications are strongly invited in this Special Issue.

The topics of interest for the special issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Signal processing for underwater monitoring, tracking, and surveillance networks
  • Design and implementation of underwater communication systems and networks
  • Underwater channel modeling and data processing
  • Underwater communication/localization via SONAR/AUV
  • Ocean remote sensing techniques

Important Dates
Submission deadline: 1 August 2022
