This double armoured fibre optic submarine cable is part of the URC-1 family. The cable is intended for use in areas where moderate to high protection is required (typically system shore ends).

The cable can contain up to 96 fibres (type G.652D) protected in a single, stainless steel tube. For fibre counts greater than 96, the fibres are split between four stranded tubes. A polyethylene sheath is extruded around the single tube/stranded tube package to complete the cable core.

A double layer of armouring wires is stranded around the cable core. This is in turn protected by a polyethylene outer sheath.

Several other options are available on request:

- A copper conductor can be applied on the steel tube for electroding purposes (fault location)
- The outer polyethylene sheath can be replaced by polypropylene yarns flooded in bitumen
- Other fibre types and fibre counts can be supplied
