Underwater Connectors Stand up to the Pressure

Underwater connectors in military electronics designed for submarines and other deep-sea applications must endure pressure, temperature cycling, seawater corrosion, and different types of shock.

Underwater connectors


One of the harshest environments military electronics systems must withstand is the deep sea. Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) that dive deep must stand up to high pressure, while submarines must withstand constant pressure cycling. Other stressors for both include temperature cycling, seawater corrosion, and different types of shock.


Application in military

In addition to submarines, the US Navy has long had programs for developing UUVs. In 2017, it began a continual improvement program to bring better sensors, endurance, and other improvements to its expanded portfolio of UUVs that now falls under the undersea warfare division. The new approach is designing them as a family of systems with common attributes — such as propulsion, autonomy, endurance, reliability, command, and control — for each class of vehicles. This model is the same one already used for the Navy’s submarine combat system approach for open architecture, the Submarine Warfare Federated Tactical Systems (SWFTS).

Although most military UUVs are created by the Navy, some programs are overseen by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Its Angler program, for example, will develop UUVs for deep-sea missions. These robots will traverse long distances, autonomously finding and manipulating objects on the sea floor without human intervention or communication.
