By the cooperation of Bahcesehir University (BAU) and Savunma Teknoloji Muhendislik A.S. (STM), an underwater optical communication system known as "The AnglerfishTM UWOC (Underwater Optical Communication)" has been designed and manufactured based on the operational requirements of divers.

Using the supplied full-face diver mask headsets, "The Anglerfish™ UWOC" provides full-duplex voice communication with eye-safe LED that allows visible underwater communication not only among divers but also submarine and divers. Communication is secure because it is directed, and modulation frequencies are unknown.

"The Anglerfish™ UWOC" is easy to use by its user-friendly application. "The Anglerfish™ UWOC" has a wide range of usage that enhances diver-to-diver communication in any underwater operation and diver-to-submarine communication as well. In the configuration where submarine and diver communication is established, submarine is furnished with a 360 degree optical transceiver located at periscopes or optical mast at sail fin.
