CiTech (Critical Infrastructure Technologies) (CSE: CTTT) (OTC: CITLF).
The company’s lead product set is a range of rapidly deployable, high-capacity communications platforms called the NEXUS 16.
Upon completing the rollout of its technology, CTTT aims to become an established player in the high-capacity mobile and rapidly deployable markets, delivering long-range communications systems into those places where they are most critically needed.
CTTT anticipates expanding its business by combining quick-return sales with annuity-based leasing to the blue-chip resource, defence and government sectors. (CSE)
Nexus 16 can be deployed in any remote area for resource, conflict, industrial or security uses. Let’s look at a couple of examples.
Here is CiTech’s NEXUS 16 brochure.
CTTT was listed on the CSE on February 28th, 2023. Initially, shares were bid u/CDN
$0.30 with no trade. That will likely change quickly.
Strategic Deployment in War Zones
The NEXUS 16 is a fully integrated, high-capacity communications platform that can be quickly and safely transported to remote and hostile locations and be fully operational and transmitted in under 30 minutes.
It isn’t much of a stretch that these platforms would be an exceptional addition to communications and network management from a war zone or other conflict area. They are small enough to truck or parachute into the site, especially remote ones.
Clear and concise exchange of information has always been vital to any successful military operation, and none more so than in modern times. Effective command and control have always been at the heart of leadership.
Connecting Industry Example; Mining.
The challenges of mining camps, the majority of which are extraordinarily remote or a challenge for good communications solutions –are myriad. The Nexus 16—double click the video to the right—is a deployable communications device connecting remote areas in 60 minutes.
“This is precisely the situation where the mining industry finds itself. Whereas other businesses may be able to operate with unreliable infrastructures and severe bandwidth restrictions, the excessive costs associated with exploration, production and operation means that network downtime can destroy profitability. Some industry estimates suggest that each year, the oil and gas industry alone loses $15 billion through poor decision-making brought on by a lack of access to the relevant information where and when it is needed.” (SatMagazine)
The growth of that market from 2022 to 2030 is anticipated to acquire a valuation of approximately USD 51,716 million by the end of 2030. The reports further predict the market to flourish at a robust CAGR of over 12.32% during the assessment timeframe.
CiNet; Standalone and Supporting NEXUS 16.
CiNet was built to support the Nexus range of products and provide seamless integration into the operator’s own Network Management Systems.
With the ability to stand alone, hosted in CiTech’s secure Network Operations Centre or hosted entirely within a client’s fast web or cloud storage, CiNet is robust and highly flexible.
CiNet Asset View
A network management system, or NMS, is an application or set of applications that lets network engineers manage a network’s independent components inside a more extensive network management framework and performs several vital functions. (Cisco)
The five operational areas of Network Management are fault management, configuration management, accounting management, performance management and security management, also known as FCAPS.
Critical Facets of a Successful Communications Infrastructure.
Access to corporate business applications: With so many people involved in the upstream process for mining, the ability to share corporate business applications—such as SAP and Oracle—becomes essential.
- Access to real-time communication: On-site teams cannot wait for days or weeks to receive notification of the subsequent actions to take
- The importance of well-being: With personnel on-site for weeks or months, well-being is a significant issue. At a minimum, separate voice and email services are required for personnel to keep in touch with family and friends.
- Dealing with medical emergencies: Direct lines of communications that can bypass the local infrastructure are essential in times of medical crisis.
- Large File Transfer: Many geological and geophysical applications Huge data files must be distributed on time in challenging conditions.
- Asset tracking and management: Asset tracking can ensure the organization receives maximum utilization of assets such as trucks and drilling rigs.
‘On-site security: Allied to the protection of personnel, the safety of plant, equipment and product is also essential to safeguard profitability and the long-term viability of remote mining operations
- Corporate Social Responsibility: With many organizations operating in remote regions, where local villagers can become an essential source of labour within the mine, Corporate Social Responsibility has grown in importance.
� Back up and redundancy: Data must be backed up to mitigate against disaster, mainly where IT equipment operates in extremes of weather or irregular power provision. (SatMagazine)
With several patents pending and issued, CiTech is in the forefront of a critical need, providing portable and highly functional communications technology that brings remote areas and the rest of the world into high-quality contact.
What it provides for companies, industries, and defence forces are financially responsible safety and security components to a remote operation.
In conclusion, the Company says it best: “The NEXUS 16 has been specifically designed to resolve the failures and operational limitations of existing products in delivering rapidly deployable high-capacity network infrastructure.”
While the technology may appear complicated for investors, the need and potential for CITECH’S solutions should be obvious.
