Abstract : A VLF-VHF broadband in-line amplifier forms a portion of a towable buoyant cable antenna system that is deployed in seawater from submarines. The amplifier is located between an antenna system and a coaxial cable. The coaxial cable is connected to the submarine. The VLF-VHF broadband in-line amplifier provides substantially uniform amplification for the frequency range of 10 kHz-160 MHz on signals received from the antenna system. The amplified signals are then transmitted to the submarine over the coaxial cable.
