Underwater communications at high frequencies have a wide variety of applications including diving, military equipment, oil and gas exploration in offshore fields as well as oceanographic mapping. Wireless communications are much more practical than hardwire communications due to the nature of the ocean environment. Currently the most commonly applied method for underwater communications is acoustic communications but have some serious disadvantages. These include low data rate, shadowing and reflections. Optical fibre communications have been offered as a viable alternative but their use is limited to small distances.
