Korean shipyard adds citadel comm systems to newbuilds

Marisatcom Satellite Communications and its partner SeaNet report that they have recently completed the delivery of five ASE Iridium Comcenter Citadel systems to South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, the first tranche of a contract for 14 emergency comms packages expected to be delivered by end of July 2016.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The ASE Iridium Comcenter Citadel system is a hidden satellite communications unit deployed on the ship, connected to a phone in the citadel.

The antenna is installed somewhere on the vessel that would be inaccessible to attackers boarding the ship, and is independent of the main ship’s communications networks so it will still function if those other systems are disabled.

The unit includes inbuilt GPS and SMS capabilities, to be used to provide emergency services with updated information as required.{/mprestriction}
