We require a hardware/firmware designer with experience in using spread spectrum technology to design a modem for use underwater. We would like a range of 1km or greater with a bit rate as high as possible (is there any way to estimate this?). We can design all transducers, casings, pcbs etc in house, we are looking for someone to do the algorithms and hardware design. Modem should be bi-directional and accept RS232 inputs and outputs. Platform would preferrably be the Microchip PIC range of microcontrollers (any series).
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. 2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. 3) Complete ownership and distribution copyrights to all work purchased.
