Underwater communication systems have drawn the attention of the research community in the last 15 years. This growing interest can largely be attributed to new civil and military applications enabled by large-scale networks of underwater devices (e.g., underwater static sensors, unmanned autonomous vehicles (AUVs), and autonomous robots), which can retrieve information from the aquatic and marine environment, perform in-network processing on the extracted data, and transmit the collected information to remote locations. Although many solutions have been introduced the last 1.5 decades many grand challenges such as low data rates, long latency, still exist. In this talk there will be a look into the next decade and further challenges and possible solutions will be presented.
