I am aware of all the tech tree bugs so I am playing this slowly, but where do I get a sub construction component so I can finally build that transmission decoder?

You can get the sub construction rearch item with the following prerequisites:
  • Sub construction store item (must be in storage at the research base before the last of either of the next two items are researched)
  • Transmission Resolver
  • Zrbite
The transmission resolver requires magnetic navigation.

The Sub construction item can be found from any intact USO.

Magnetic navigation differs between two versions of the game. In the older pre v2.0 patch, you needed a lobsterman navigator. Tough, I agree. With the v2.0 patch (or if you're playing the Collectors Edition) you should get access to magnetic navigation right away.

Something in there should answer your question.

After completely clearing both levels of an alien colony last night, I was awarded with 26 Sub Construction components :P
