Underwater modems, also known as acoustic modems, are used to transmit communication signals underwater. Underwater modems convert digital signals into special sound signals that can be transmitted underwater, making underwater communication possible.
Underwater modems modulates and demodulate communication signals under the water surface, which is different than what takes place on land. Players in the underwater modems market are developing advanced technologies to improve the quality of underwater wireless data transmission.
Electromagnetic waves are commonly used for data transmission on land and in space, but these are highly unsuitable for underwater applications. Stakeholders in the underwater modems market are developing underwater modems that can be used in autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROVs). The sound signals transmitted using underwater modems mainly depend on three factors: the hydrostatic pressure of water, its salinity, and water temperature.
The underwater modems market is gaining momentum with recent developments in underwater communication technologies. Players in the underwater modems market are concentrating on research & development in technologies to eliminate challenges in underwater modems and to develop high-quality signal transmitters and receivers to enhance the efficiencies of underwater communications. Furthermore, market players are incorporating advanced technologies to design highly efficient underwater modems suitable for long-distance underwater communication applications.
The underwater modems market is undergoing radical and positive changes with increasing adoption of advanced technologies for improving the quality of underwater communication. A wide range of versatile industrial applications of underwater modems remains the primary driver for the growth of the underwater modems market.
