Submarine communication tech advances

MARION, Mass., July 27 (UPI) -- Lockheed Martin says a technology designed to deliver two-way communications between U.S. Navy submarines has completed a system requirements review.

U.S. company Lockheed Martin says its team, which includes Ultra Electronics Ocean Systems and Erapsco, has successfully completed system requirements review for the Communications at Speed and Depth technology.


The completed review marks a milestone for the development of the CSD system, which enables secure, two-way communications at tactical speeds and below periscope depth with surface ships, aircraft and land-based assets.

"The on-schedule progress of this program results from a strong government-industry team that is focused on delivering a much-needed capability to the fleet," Brent Starr, the Navy's CSD principle acquisition program manager, said in a statement.

"The system requirements review was a huge success."
