Abstract-- Recent technological improvements and application
opportunities have fueled increased interest in the development
and deployment of underwater acoustic sensor networks. De-
ployment efforts have been impeded by the prohibitive monetary
cost and high power consumption of existing acoustic hardware.
Alternately, we propose underwater networks that rely on widely
available speakers and microphones in electronic devices, coupled
with software modems, to establish acoustic communication links.
The proposed acoustic communications system paves the way
for cheap and easily deployable underwater acoustic sensor
