Electromagnetic Solutions for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

Why Protect Unmanned Underwater Vehicles from Interference

d-sub-circularUnmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) are robotic, submersible vehicles that can operate underwater without a human operator. Applications for this type of craft include military intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, scientific research and exploration, ship hull infrastructure inspection, and port security.

Electromagnetic interference (EMI) generated by electronics in Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) operations can be a serious concern. Spectrum Control designs and manufactures the broadest line of EMI filtering products for electromagnetic compliance (EMC) in the industry and knows how to implement those products to ensure system-level requirements.

Types of EMI Filtering Solutions

Spectrum Control will support countless UUV applications by eliminating or reducing EMI. We offer a wide range of standard products and can also develop a product or integrated assembly to help address UUV design’s mechanical, electrical, and power demands. We offer flexibility to filter EMI at the power source, at the I/O connection, in a barrier wall, or on the PCB.

Communications & Control

Reliable communications for high data throughput in harsh conditions are essential to ensure reliable communications linked to the surface:

Power Supplies and Distribution

Unmanned vehicles may be powered and controlled via a tether from a ground-based power source. Protecting these systems from EMI is critical.

RF Transmitters

RF transmitters support many UUV system missions, including military and law enforcement surveillance, infrastructure surveying, and underwater imaging.

Additional UUV Applications

Spectrum Control will support many UUV application by elimination or reducing EMI: navigation systems, signal/data/power lines, sensors, sonar systems, instrumentation, DC-DC converters, inertial measurement units (IMU), transducers, actuators, navigation, brush motors.
