This thesis will describe the work undertaken towards the implementation of an acoustic communication system capable of reliable, high-speed data transmission over long ranges in both horizontal and vertical channels of water, using both linear and circular beamforming arrays and adaptive receiver techniques. It will describe how 'software' receiver techniques are employed on a standard PC to minimise hardware complexity and provide a powerful platform for analysing existing protocols and allowing the rapid implementation of future ones. It will provide results from experimental trials demonstrating the effectiveness of the system, and conclude with how the system can be improved upon and taken forward in future work.
