Title: Acoustic Channel Link Models for Digital Communication Protocols

Abstract

Integration of advanced communication technologies into nuclear facility operation has the potential for enhancing safety and accident -resiliency of the existing fleet of aging light water reactors, as well those of future advanced reactors. Conventional wired and wireless communication systems face implementation challenges at nuclear facilities due to the presence of thick reinforced concrete walls with steel liners throughout much of nuclear facility, especially the containment building. In addition, concerns related to security gaps in conventional communication networks have to be addressed when developing communication systems for nuclear facilities. To address communication technology gaps for nuclear energy, we are currently developing the acoustic communication (AC) hardware and network protocols for efficient and secure transfer of data, and will provide a preliminary experimental demonstration of the AC system prototype in a representative environment.
