This paper presents a simple network architecture and protocol stack for the three-dimensional Underwater Acoustic Sensor Network. The network consists of combination of static and mobile nodes deployed at different depths in the ocean. A clustering protocol is designed and developed to select a cluster-head node from among the cluster/group of nodes located in a common geographical area. Data is relayed from cluster-members to cluster-head using TDMA based MAC protocol. Mobile data mule collects the data from cluster-head nodes located at various depths. This network is simulated using UnetSim simulator developed by National University of Singapore. Detailed results and analysis have been provided in the paper. This 3D mobile UASN can be used for real-time monitoring of ocean environment, or for marine habitat monitoring.
