Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN) are quickly becoming an important part of regional military operations. The use of standardized internet protocols enables a wide variety of vehicles, sensors and peIXOMd to interoperate more effectiveIy. For Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (Auv), they permit a potentialIy great improvement to distribute outputs from data intensive sensors like sonar and video to observers. For a neet of AWs tasked with area underwater search and survey, WLANs can facilitate situational awareness, re-tasking and expedience,
