LRAM – Long-Range Acoustic Messaging
LRAM provides integrated underwater communications with submarines at long ranges enabling tactical flexibility such as mission change/update, targeting re-assignment, covert exchange of vital of information in littoral waters and more. LRAM also enhances safety by providing reliable, extended, two-way communications with a distressed submarine.
LRAM combines SATCOM/radio with underwater acoustic communications through an expendable buoy or persistent USV for tactical messaging covering broad ocean/sea areas and the shallows up to the coast line.
LRAM can also be applied for UUV communications as well as activation of underwater devices.
