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.
