This paper describes an environmental impact analysis to design an adaptive media access control protocol for underwater vehicle control system based on underwater acoustic channel estimation. In underwater acoustic communication, data transmission is strongly influenced by environmental impacts, such as signal strength, hydraulic pressure, water temperature, noise, and etc. One of the main considerable points in underwater acoustic communication is signal strength of underwater acoustics as it has interdependent relationship between the distance and the power. An impact analysis of signal strength can be usefully employed in utilizing mobile ad-hoc network, which is used in underwater vehicle control systems. For efficiency we studied an impact analysis of signal strength in underwater vehicle control system.
