Paper Abstract

In submarine environments for the collection of information, wired oceanic positioning devices are used. However, the use of this type of instruments in the investigation of ecosystems, burst into the tranquility of the habitat, putting at risk the veracity of the data that is collected, due to the behavior of some species that, when they feel assaulted or invaded in their natural environment, deploy defense mechanisms. Another alternative for the collection of information in these environments is wireless communications in aqueous media, however, the research related to this type of communication is supported by simulations without performing field tests to check their functionality, the performance of the batteries and the effectiveness of communication between devices in an underwater environment. For this reason, the design of a wireless communication system between a mobile device and a submarine semi-autonomous vehicle is proposed, using a radio beacon, to know the geographical coordinates of the vehicle, through a Global Positioning System (GPS), and in this way know the trajectory path of the vehicle. So that this communication can help in the detailed study of marine ecosystems, where the researcher obtains the tracking of migration trajectory of marine species, without altering the habitat.
