Defence Industry

Tel Aviv: Israeli company DSIT has unveiled its WhitePointer – the most advanced underwater acoustic communication system that enables simultaneous communication between multiple surface and underwater platforms. The system is based on the company’s advanced underwater technology that allows networked communication between various users.


According  to the company, the WhitePointer system complies with NATO Standards and enables reliable 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). 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 pre-set frequencies. This allows the Operator to rapidly switch channels without risking errors.

According to Hanan Marom DSIT’s VP Business Development and Marketing, the WhitePointer system is an advanced communication suite that supports covert operational missions of multiple maritime vessels as well as tactical missions and search & rescue missions.

A subsidiary of RAFAEL Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., DSIT Solutions Ltd. has, for the last three decades, developed and implemented comprehensive defence and protection solutions against various underwater threats, focusing on six main types of solutions: Underwater Coastal Terrain Dominance systems, Underwater Security systems, Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) systems, Sonar systems for Submersible Platforms, Acoustic Analysis & Trainer systems, and underwater communication.

Based on DSIT Solutions’ wide range of capabilities, experience and innovative technology, the company’s underwater systems and technologies have been successfully deployed by many sophisticated customers worldwide for naval defence, HLS, and energy security applications.
