DARPA’s TUNA readies for next phase
Posted on: January 12, 2017

The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has concluded the initial development phase of its Tactical Undersea Network Architectures (TUNA) programme following 15 months of development and testing.

The TUNA effort was launched in April 2014 and aims to research credible communication networks that could be employed by naval platforms in the event of a disruption to existing communications.

DARPA also awarded a USD1.9 million contract to LGS Innovations LLC for the development of a neutrally buoyant undersea fibre-optic cable. LGS worked with partners Linden Photonics and Tethers Unlimited to provide the programme with designs, simulations, and a scaled demonstration.
