The SSN type submarines require a communications system for high-speed and deep depth operations. The performance of an existing towed communications system is not sufficient to meet new high-speed requirements. An Engineering Development Model EDM buoy was constructed and evaluated. The evaluation showed the buoy to perform satisfactorily over the speed range of 0 to 25 knots, and determined the best settings for the horizontal stabilizer to be zero degrees or less. Author
