    Currently the interest in underwater acoustic communication is growing rapidly as more and more underwater monitoring systems are deployed around the world. In order to cope with the challenges of the complex underwater acoustic channel many node platforms, networking protocols, and signal processing algorithms have been proposed. However, many of these protocols are still in the simulation stage and have not been completely implemented and used in real settings. In this paper we propose a research prototype underwater sensing and communication platform that enables developers to easily deploy their systems and check and update their protocols.
