The TD1 system was built for use in confined space. When working in a confine space area, one of the requirements is to have communication with the outside, which is normally done by use of radios, unfortunately radio signal can't be guaranteed underground. The system we came up with was a cable with sockets every 50 meters, which allowed you to plug in a comms unit and communicate with the surface. So far we have covered a distance of 2.5 kilometres with good communication.
