About DSP Comm

Underwater acoustic modems can deliver financial and operational advantages that are an order of magnitude superior to wired systems. However this potential is rarely realised, often because the modems simply do not communicate reliably and are too bulky and power hungry.

In 2000, DSPComm was founded with the purpose of bringing rock-solid reliability and unprecedented versatility to underwater wireless modems.

Today, we are one of the fastest growing companies in the underwater acoustic modem market. Our modems are used by some of the top names in the industry in applications that require the highest level of reliability and versatility the market can offer.


We looked at the underwater communications vendors globally for a suitable solution for our product. The reliability of underwater communications was our key requirement, but we also needed a cost-competitive modem with low power consumption and small footprint.After undertaking a lengthy evaluation of three modems, including the top names in the market, we chose DSPComm's Aquacomm modem because it best met our requirements. We also needed a company that would work with us to deliver our product to the market. In that regard, DSPComm proved to be a partner, not just a supplier.


Thales Safare provides acoustic and communication products to navies and armies worldwide. It is in the naval division of the Thales Group, a global electronics and systems group with EUR13bn in annual revenues. Thales Safare supplies to combat system integrators, shipyards, and Ministries of Defence in over 30 countries... Upon completing this evaluation, we found DSPComm's AquaComm modem was the only one to meet all our selection criteria. Most keys to this decision for us was we could ensure we maintained our credibility and reputation with our customers for reliable, quality products. We have found DSP Comm's Aqua comm product range to be more than capable in this regard.
