Emergency crisis communications

Organizations or institutions with important significance for the state community are called “critical infrastructures” (KRITIS). The failure or impairment of these infrastructures can have dramatic consequences.




Critical infrastructures are organizations and facilities from the following areas:

  • power supply
  • Information technology and telecommunications
  • Transport and traffic
  • Health
  • Water
  • Nutrition
  • Finance and insurance
  • State and administration
  • Media and culture


Goal: Ensuring communication in “critical infrastructures” (KRITIS)
Task: Preventing communication failures
Requirements: Crisis-proof and independent emergency communication

Why is emergency communications so important for critical infrastructure?

Experience shows that common communication networks such as landlines, mobile phones or the Internet are overloaded in the event of a crisis or are no longer available after a few hours or minutes.

The failure or overload of terrestrial networks (such as landlines, mobile communications or the Internet) can be caused, for example, by extreme weather conditions, widespread, long-lasting power outages or by IT-related hazards.

In order to avoid or prevent a failure or impairment of critical infrastructures, crisis-proof and independent emergency communication is crucial.

Satellite-based solutions enable instant communication anywhere!

Special features of satellite communication

  • Ready for immediate use
  • Reliable communication option even when no terrestrial networks are available
  • Reliable availability in the event of widespread, extended power outages
  • Power supply option from integrated battery or from 110 V – 240 V and from 12 V/24 V car battery
  • Possibility of permanent installation in vehicles or buildings using a removable antenna with HF or system cable connection
  • Possibility of mobile use
  • Robust case solutions available
  • Communication types: voice, fax, data, SMS
  • Possibility of connecting to an existing telecommunications system
  • Conference capability (via secure PBX)
  • Data communication option
  • Connection of the terminal devices of the same satellite system without terrestrial line connections

The variety of telephones and terminals available today meets every requirement for a modern communication unit - whether mobile or stationary.

The extensive equipment of the current devices offers numerous application options at the highest level of security.

The telephones and terminals are available in different sizes and functions and can be optionally configured.

The devices are generally very robust as they were designed for use under extreme conditions by military organizations, media and aid organizations.

Most devices are dust and splash-proof, and some even have protection class IP-67.
