Secure Onboard Communications for Satellite Piracy
Growing concerns regarding deadly attacks on commercial and leisure vessels. In the event of an attack, PotsDOCK ensures essential connectivity onboard; providing the captain and crew with access to voice communications and the ability to alert authorities. By design, the system is less susceptible to be ‘taken out’ and can be maintained even if all other power or communication equipment has been destroyed by pirates. Greg Ewert, executive vice president, global distribution channels at Iridium said: “It not only works everywhere off the global, reliable Iridium communications network, but it is specially designed to enable connectivity for vessels in dangerous situations.” Addressing this problem is Beam’s anti piracy communication system which has been developed for the marine market. Utilizing the Iridium Extreme satellite
® handset and the Beam Covert Antenna, PotsDOCK Extreme Covert Piracy Solution provides a dedicated system for a safe room or citadel onboard a vessel.
