Internet of Underwater Things

The objective of the initiative is to fully invade and disrupt the oceans in the name of, what else, lucrative “sustainable development,” plus military gains.

In a 2012 paper, the Internet of Underwater Things (IoUT) is defined as a “world-wide network of smart interconnected underwater objects that enables to monitor vast unexplored water areas.”

It includes such obviously bad ideas as introducing underwater devices that communicate long-distance through impactful acoustic waves — deafening marine life — as well as installing nodes and devices at the ocean floor, scattering numerous underwater vehicles and robots all over the oceans, creating electromagnetic interferences, and much more.

DARPA’s “Ocean of Things”

Speaking of DARPA: According to Forbes, they were “awarded a contract for the next phase of development of its Ocean of Things (OoT), a project to seed the seas with thousands of floating sensors, monitoring everything that passes from aircraft to submarines.”

“Sixth-generation wireless communication (6G) will be an integrated architecture of ‘space, air, ground and sea’. One of the most difficult parts of this architecture is the underwater information acquisition which need to transmit information cross the interface between water and air.

“Some of the underwater acoustic modems that are being marketed are capable of producing sound as loud as 202 decibels. That is equivalent to 139 decibels in air. It is as loud as a jet engine at a distance of 100 feet, and is above the threshold for pain in humans.

These modems blast modulated sound at frequencies ranging from 7 kHz to 170 kHz, encompassing almost the entire hearing range of dolphins, which use sound for hunting and navigating.”

“Most fish and invertebrates use sound for vital life functions

Smart Ocean: Impacts of technology on marine life

Ocean of Consciousness awareness raising event inspired by whales featuring Dr. Marsha Green from Ocean Mammal Institute

The above video from the December 2021 solstice event is an awareness-raising program introducing the topic of safety for whales and marine life who will be impacted by the military and commercial expansion of technology into the ocean via the Internet of Underwater Things (IoUT).

Commercial interests and the armed forces view an internet-connected ocean as essential for their operations. But the impacts on marine life are not being considered.

The Internet of Underwater Things will consist of underwater sensors that communicate with one another and with relay stations on the surface of the water. These stations will in turn communicate with satellites and/or ground-based 4G/5G infrastructure on land.

This vast ocean-based network will be integrated into Systems Warfare — 21st century warfare that weaves together the different branches of the military into one coordinated AI web of destruction.

The IoUT will also play an integral role in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) “arms race” we are currently witnessing play out in the US, China, and other nations.

In what’s known as Dual Use Technology, the Internet of Underwater Things will also be used by the private sector for its purposes: mining for minerals on the ocean floor, seismic drilling, monitoring oil and gas pipelines, global trade, surveying shipwrecks, and scientific research.

Sonar waves and anthropogenic noise interfere with whales and other marine mammals’ ability to tend to their needs. High intensity sonar, around 240 decibels, used by the US navy, can cause deafness, bleeding in the brain, stranding, and death in whales.

Disoriented from the unrelenting sound that can permeate the ocean for hundreds of miles (and in the case of low frequency sonar, thousands of miles), in a desperate effort to escape the sound, whales fling themselves onto the shore and die.

ACCEPTED BY IEEE COMMUNICATION SURVEYS & TUTORIALS, 20211Internet of Underwater Things and Big MarineData Analytics – A Comprehensive Survey

I. INTRODUCTION THE INTERNET OF THINGS

(IoT) augmented with machine intelligence and big data analytics is expected to transform and revolutionize the way we live in almost every technological area. Broadly speaking, IoT can be defined as an infrastructure of the information society that connects equipment/devices (things) to the Internet and to one another. By this means, the IoT could connect devices in any place on earth to help us have better interaction with our living environment [1].To date, the existing networks in terrestrial and urban are ashave been the domain of influence for the IoT and have been researched extensively. This has made a fairly strong foundation for the industrial IoT developments, which are emerging with an astonishing pace at the time of writing [2].However, the underwater section of IoT, i.e. IoUT has not attracted as much attention as it deserves and it is a rather unexplored research area. This is mainly because underwater applications are still in their infancy and the new era of scientific endeavor to better understand, control, and interact with the oceans and seas through underwater technologies is yet to flourish.Although44%of the earth’s population lives within 150 kmof the sea,95%of sea area remains unexplored by the humankind [3]. Oceans cover more than70%of the earth’s surface and90%of international trades are through nautical transportations [4]. Astonishingly, 12 people have spent 300hours on the surface of the moon, while only 3 people have spent about 3 hours at 6 km depth of the ocean. In addition,about 90 million tons of salt-water fish are caught world wideeach year, and the coral reefs are estimated to provide food for almost 500 million people [5]. Hence, underwater research and development could have a significant impact on many aspectsof human’s life by establishing and rolling out the IoUT.”On the surface of the ocean, men wage war and destroy each other; but down here, just a few feet beneath the surface, there is a calm and peace, unmolested by man.”— Jules Verne Although the IoUT has many technical similarities with its ground-based counterpart (IoT) such as its structure and function, it has many technical differences arising from its different communication/telecommunication environments,computational limitations, and constrained energy resources.To address these gaps between the IoT and IoUT, technical concepts in the field of IoUT will be extensively discussed.These include both the underwater communications [6]–[8],as well as the underwater sensors and devices [9].By connecting an increasing number of devices and ma-chines to the Internet, the IoT and IoUT ecosystems produce enormous amounts of data. This high volume of data is referred to in parlance asbig data. Big data is currently being generated by various technological ecosystems and perhaps the most ubiquitous data types in today’s world is the data produced throughout the IoT. This is also set to increase,since the number of Internet-connected devices is projected to increase from the current 30 billion to over 50 billion by2020 [10].In the age of sparse data production, analytical mathematics and statistical techniques, widely known as data mining, were employed to infer knowledge from data. However, in the current era of data proliferation, when the produced data volume in the last five years exceeds the whole amount of data generated before that, conventional data processing techniques will soon fall short [11], [12]. These traditional big data handling methods relying on statistical descriptive,predictive, and prescriptive analytics usually suffer from the lack of generalization. That is, they cannot automatically learn the behavior and features in smaller datasets and use them in big data scenarios...

Can power companies really control your thermostat?

Yes, Texas energy companies can remotely control your thermostat - depending on your plan

It was unclear how many homes had thermostats changed Wednesday, though TXU said tens of thousands of customers participate in the program.

https://www.khou.com/article/news/local/ercot-texas-power-grid-thermostat-yes-texas-energy-companies-can-remotely-control-your-thermostat-depending-on-your-plan/287-8e81116b-b734-4b78-957a-df835fd31955

As Texas went into energy conservation mode this week, some residents might have noticed something odd on their wall: their thermostat changing the temperature on its own.

They weren't just seeing things.

TXU Energy confirmed to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that its "Demand Response Program" can remotely change customers' thermostats "by a few degrees for a short time, normally less than an hour" when the power grid is under stress, like on Wednesday.

It was unclear how many homes had thermostats changed Wednesday, though TXU said tens of thousands of customers participate in the program. TXU did not respond to a request for comment from WFAA on Thursday.

In June, The Verge reported that CenterPoint Energy in Houston also has certain remotely-controlled thermostat programs through EnergyHub.

In Texas, the programs are in the form of EnergyHub's rewards program known as "Smart Savers Texas."

Customers have the choice of opting in to the program by allowing EnergyHub and their energy provider to "remotely access your thermostat to make brief, limited adjustments ... at times of peak electricity demand in the summer," the Smart Savers website said.

When a customer opts in to the program, they are automatically entered into a $5,000 sweepstakes. Customers have to have a so-called smart thermostat, such as Nest, that is connected to the internet.

According to the Smart Savers terms, temperature adjustments would typically happen on weekdays from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m., "but may extend outside of that time window for system testing or rare emergency conditions."

Last summer, some customers in Houston complained when they woke up to warm temperatures and found out their thermostat had been remotely adjusted.

The customers apparently weren't aware they were enrolled in a remotely-controlled program, telling KHOU they unenrolled as soon as they found out.

The Electric Reliability Council of Texas issued a conservation appeal to all Texans on Wednesday, asking homes and businesses to reduce their energy usage from 2-9 p.m.

Scorching hot temperatures have strained the Texas power grid this week; ERCOT also asked Texans to conserve energy on Monday.

On both days, the power grid's energy demand was on the same level as the supply, though no rolling blackouts were reported as a result.
