According to the company, the system is based on underwater technology that allows networked communication between various users.

The WhitePointer system complies with NATO Standards and enables voice and data communication between surface ships, submarines, and other underwater users including divers and drones such as swimmer’s delivery vehicles (SDVs), diver propulsion vehicles (DPVs), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs).

Moreover, the system supports underwater acoustic networked communication with multiple users and can be fully integrated with any onboard communication system.

“The solution – which implements multiple types of modulations for data transmission – includes a synthesized, high-power transceiver with preset frequencies. This allows the Operator to rapidly switch channels without risking errors,” the firm noted.

“We are proud to launch this … acoustic underwater communication system that enables cyber safety and protected underwater networked communication between multiple surface and underwater platforms on the same network, via both voice and data transmissions. The WhitePointer system is a … communication suite that supports covert operational missions of multiple maritime vessels as well as tactical missions and search & rescue missions,” DSIT’s VP Business Development and Marketing Hanan Marom stated.

A subsidiary of RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems, DSIT Solutions has, for the last three decades, developed and implemented comprehensive defense and protection solutions against various underwater threats.
