Continuing a ten year history of supporting the US Navy submarine fleet’s most capable communications system, BTP has been awarded a $2.3M design and qualification contract for the Submarine High Data Rate (SubHDR) Antenna Multi-Volt Power Supply (MVPS).  The new MVPS design will improve system reliability and provide additional power to future antenna enhancements.  The SubHDR antenna is deployed from the sail of the submarine and is subject to tough environmental conditions such as temperature and vibration.  Under this contract, the MVPS prototype will be subject to a complete battery of design qualification testing.
