Ivor Nissen (MCN founder member, Ivor.Nissen@t-online.de), point of contact for underwater communications, obtained a PhD in the field of numerical mathematics and optimization at the University of Kiel in 1997. His research interests changed from numerical modelling to signal processing and digital communications for acoustics in shallow water during two years of Post doc research on a Fraunhofer grant. Then he started a career in underwater acoustics at FWG in Kiel. He serves as an underwater communication expert for the German Navy since 1999, is the leader of the underwater communication team at WTD71, holds lectures at the University of Kiel and Gdynia in this field, and is involved in the analysis of international underwater activities. In the EDA RACUN and SALSA project he was the GER technical coordinator, provides in EDA SABUVIS II the underwater navigation expertise.
His main interest is the underwater information management. He is working for DIN, Berlin, in the ISO/IEC SC41 panel Internet of Things (IoT) for underwater issues WG3-WG7 and standards like JANUS (ANEP 87). His long-term goal is the realization of information supply concepts for a robust fault-tolerant co-operation, coordination and coalition in the water column.
