Within the framework of the WiMUST project, an important requirement is the parallel AUV operation and communication with the seismic signal acquisition. The objective of this report is to investigate whether the AUV self noise and the Mid Frequency (MF) and High Frequency (HF) communication signals used by the modems, which are installed on the AUVs, would interfere with the acquisition of seismic signals. This report attempts to address this issue and discusses measurement results from the Engineering trial that took place in Lisbon in Mai 2016.
