Columbia Power and University of Washington complete successful test of low-power wave energy system for DARPA

Columbia Power—the worldwide leader in direct-drive wave-power systems for both utility-scale and low-power applications—is pleased to announce the successful test of an autonomous, low-power wave-energy-system as part of the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s Tactical Undersea Network Architecture (TUNA) program. The prototype design, build and offshore test was performed as part of a phase one project led by the University of Washington – Applied Physics Laboratory. The TUNA program seeks to develop and demonstrate novel optical-fiber-based technology options and designs to temporarily restore tactical data network connectivity in a contested environment.
