SSBNs can remain submerged basically indefinitely thanks to their nuclear reactors, and are thus unlikely

DARPA RFP – Reconfigurable Undersea Communications Networks to Link Underwater Vessels, Ships and Aircraft

TIMEly to develop a heterogeneous maritime communications architecture, to control rapidly reconfigurable military forces under, on, and over the ocean. U.S. military researchers are working with industry to develop real-time command-and-control communications networks that function above, on, and under the ocean using the latest in undersea communications and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs). Officials of the
