The applications of underwater sensor network are oceanographic data collection, pollution monitoring, offshore exploration, disaster prevention, assisted navigation and tactical surveillance applications. The routing protocol designed for specific roles, leads to issues in the network. The major issues for development of routing protocol for underwater sensor network are harsh deployment environment, low bandwidth, high propagation delay, requires high battery energy, Temporary losses, Fouling and corrosion and High bit error rates. In this project the certain issues to be rectified are low bandwidth, energy efficiency and data delivery.
