High demands on underwater communications 

 

When submarine manufacturer Kockums in Malmö was to procure communications systems for the new A 26 submarine, Combitech's specialists helped configure the technical requirements specifications.

Kockums in Malmö is currently working with design of the next submarine generation, A 26, on behalf of the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration. The new generation of submarines entails that the submarine's role as an information collector is reinforced, at the same time as the stealth technology is refined. This is being done to be able to operate effectively in the Baltic Sea and in other shallow waters.

Stringent demands are therefore placed on the onboard communications systems. They must be able to manage the crowded, humid underwater environment with the high pressure under which submarines operate. Communications are conducted via ultrasound, in other words, sound waves under water. The environmental demands are also tough, as well as the security demands that stipulate that the communications system must remain operable even after an explosion.

Experts in liaison communications
At the liaison department at Kockums, headed by Jens Lagerstedt, work is conducted with everything that has to do with internal and external communications. This concerns both speech and text, as well as encrypted and non-encrypted information. Intensive work with requirements specifications is currently underway for procurement of the submarine's communications systems. Kockums is therefore receiving assistance from Combitech consultants in preparing the technical requirements specifications for the communications systems.

As to why the choice fell to some of Combitech's 80 communications consultants, Jens Lagerstedt explains this as follows:
“Combitech has recognised skilled specialists in liaison communications. Moreover, they have the lab environments where we can test equipment in reality per armed forces' requirements. And when you engage one consultant as a resource reinforcement, in the bargain you gain indirect contact with Combitech's other experts.”

Consultants' role changing
Kockums presently has a number of consultants in the organisation. Sometimes this is for meeting temporary peaks through resource reinforcement. But just as often, it is a matter of engaging specialist expertise for shorter studies in areas in which in-depth expertise is lacking. But Jens Lagerstedt anticipates a somewhat changed orientation in the future.

“Development is moving towards the consultants not needing to work on our premises. We can instead send out work packages that they complete on an assignment basis. It's then good that the consultants have a short ramp-up time. In Combitech's case, they have long experience of defence-related operations and have the requisite security clearances,” says Jens Lagerstedt in closing.
