HydroCast is a stateless and pressure protocol which prefers the inexpensive distributed localization.
HydroCast can handle the communication void problem which can enhance data delivery ratio.

During the KH-84-3 cruise, the bottles were attached to a tapered steel wire (9 mm diameter at the top and 14 mm at the end of its 14000 m total length) for the deep (>6000 m) hydrocast
(water sampling) and to a steel wire (6 mm diameter with a length of 10000 m) for the shallow (<6000 m) hydrocast

samples contained measurements of seawater temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen and sulfide concentration, turbidity, pH, and alkalinity.
Some advantages of HydroCast
are highlighted as follows:
Socket/stump interface dynamic pressure distributions recorded during the prosthetic stance phase of gait of a trans-tibial amputee wearing a hydrocast
(hydraulic pressure based anycast routing)  protocol utilizes the depth information (pressure level) of the sensor nodes along with the clustering of the nodes.
These two temperature-depth profiles to depths of about 500 m, obtained from hydrocasts
conducted six days apart, were virtually identical.
were carried out every 3 h from an anchored vessel.
In the sanctuary, this innovation means that shipboard operations, from hydrocasts
to submersible launches, can be conducted in higher sea states than with a comparably sized monohull.
