Autonomous systems are increasingly used to provide situational awareness and long-term environment monitoring. Photovoltaics (PV) are favored as a long-endurance power source for many of these applications. To date, the use of PV is limited to space and terrestrial (dry-land) installations. The need for a persistent power source also exists for underwater (UW) systems, which currently rely on surface PV arrays or batteries. In this paper, we demonstrate that high-bandgap-InGaP solar cells can provide useful power UW.
