Present NATO Underwater Communication Capabilities are currently standardised as follows: - Tactical and safety communication in accordance with STANAG 1074, analogue Voice and Morse - Distress in accordance with STANAG 1298. 2. Some NATO nations’ maritime assets have underwater (UW) communication capabilities exceeding the above standards based on point-to-point communication links, following either analogue standards or using proprietary digital coding technologies from the communication equipment supplying company. Yet there exists no interoperable capability for digital UW communication between assets, NATO and NON-NATO, military and civilian, using communication systems from different suppliers, as required to support NATO maritime force goals. 3. An interoperability capability is essential as NATO maritime CONUSE seek to integrate an increasingly heterogeneous mix of maritime assets. Submarines, surface craft, fixed- and rotary- wing aircraft, moored ocean sensing systems, g.....
