Photo-optical technology has exceptionally varied uses in the sea ranging from imaging to communications and remote sensing. The optical region has many inherent advantages which will insure its continued application in ocean-related tasks. Optical systems, however, are limited to relatively short water paths due to the strong absorption and scattering of even the clearest water. Better understanding of light propagation in a scattering/absorbing medium and the development of techniques to extend operating range are among our most important tasks.
