There is an operational need for small team command, control, communications and situational awareness (C3SA) for small combat diving teams. A requirement exists for a small, lightweight, and low-powered tactical system that provides low probability of detection and interception (LPD/LPI) communications and situational awareness. VIPMobile previously developed small, lightweight, low powered special reconnaissance devices for the ground – Enhanced Image Capture and Transfer (EICT) device; and the air – Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) Payload Interface Master Module (PIMM). This C3SA capability provides an all-in-one sea, air and land device. VIPMobile, will develop an all-inclusive “Divers C3SA System” that leverages the state-of-the-art and can be used in the hostile underwater environment. This unit will use the most secure waveforms and frequencies available. The System will have an interface which will be easy to view and operate in the underwater environment. In addition, VIPMobile will investigate, analyze and develop a system that will allow a seamless transition from water-to-land communications and vice versa that satisfies LPD/LPI requirements.
