X-SUB Expendable Submarine Communication Buoys

 

ALSEAMAR X-SUB buoys allow submarines to communicate at depth and speed without raising a periscopic communications antenna.

The X-Sub buoy is a device released via the standard ejector. The buoy then floats to the surface and remains connected to the submarine via a wire connection. 

The buoy also acquires the GPS or AIS position or situation, which is transmitted to the submarine and is visible on an operating unit on board the submarine. Once the link is broken, the buoy is scuttled.
