Citadel Communications

A new system has been launched which claims to counter the problems of communicating when retreating into a security citadel.

Applied Satellite Engineering (ASE) has introduced the new system which aims to allow crews on a vessel under attack by pirates to retreat to a safe area while still maintaining communications links with the shore.

The Citadel safe room solution incorporates Iridium satellite voice services and GPS reporting, and is kept separate from the usual vessel communications system. ASE suggests that, when a ship is boarded by pirates, the crew withdraw to a designated safe room, or citadel, and power down all systems, leaving pirates with a dark ship and no control.
