    • Autonomous networked anti-submarine warfare research and development at CMRE 

      LePage, Kevin D.; Goldhahn, Ryan A.; Alves, João; Strode, Christopher; Braca, Paolo; Ferri, Gabriele; Munafò, Andrea; Oddone, Manlio; Sildam, Jüri; Baralli, Francesco; Biagini, Stefano; Canepa, Gaetano; Colombo, Marco; Grandi, Vittorio; Grenon, Gabriel; Mazzi, Marco; Micheli, Michele; Parisi, Gerardo; Saia, Paolo; Vermeij, Arjan; Zappa, Giovanni (CMRE, 2019/06)
      CMRE has been evaluating the potential of autonomous networked ASW using underwater vehicles through a program of sonar signal processing, underwater communications, navigation and robotic behavior developments and at-sea ...
    • Decision tree-based adaptive modulation for underwater acoustic communications 

      Pelekanakis, Konstantinos; Cazzanti, Luca; Zappa, Giovanni; Alves, João (CMRE, 2017/11)
      Underwater acoustic channels are characterised by non-stationary fading statistics and consequently, a modulation scheme optimally designed for a specific fading model will underperform when the channel statistics ...
    • Development of a software-defined and cognitive communications nd cognitive communications architecture at CMRE 

      Petroccia, Roberto; Zappa, Giovanni; Furfaro, Thomas C.; Alves, João; D'Amaro, Luigi (2019/05)
      This paper presents an overview of the functionalities of the Cognitive Communications Architecture (CCA) that is currently under development at the NATO Science and Technology Organisation (STO) Centre for Maritime Research ...
    • Fostering the use of JANUS in operationally-relevant underwater applications 

      Petroccia, Roberto; Alves, João; Zappa, Giovanni (CMRE, 2017/11)
      This paper presents the use of JANUS in operationally-relevant underwater applications. JANUS is an open, simple and robust digital coding technology currently in process to become a NATO standard. Two underwater scenarios ...
    • JANUS-based services for operationally relevant underwater applications 

      Petroccia, Roberto; Alves, João; Zappa, Giovanni (CMRE, 2017/11)
      This paper presents the design, test, and experimentation at sea of four JANUS-based services for operationally relevant underwater applications: 1) first contact and language switching; 2) transmission of automatic ...
    • Moving JANUS forward: a look into the future of underwater communications interoperability 

      Alves, João; Furfaro, Thomas C.; LePage, Kevin D.; Pelekanakis, Konstantinos; Petroccia, Roberto; Zappa, Giovanni (CMRE, 2017/11)
      In the past 8 years, the Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE) has developed, tested and promoted JANUS - a robust and simple modulation and coding scheme to be used as the first standard to support ...
    • Underwater communications research and development at CMRE 

      Alves, João; LePage, Kevin D.; Guerrini, Piero; Potter, John Robert; Zappa, Giovanni; Munafò, Andrea; Furfaro, Thomas C.; Vermeij, Arjan (CMRE, 2019/06)
      A key to developing autonomous maritime systems for NATO is communication among data gathering platforms below and above the water. However, unlike the mature technologies that are used for terrestrial networks, underwater ...
