SUMMARY

This paper introduces the CATALINK system. CATALINK would build on the “hotline” model of previous generations, and rely on internationally driven open-source technologies to maximize user integrity and trust. It would exploit redundant transmission capabilities to ensure that multiple parties could connect under extreme conditions, including loss of power and absence of cellular and internet connectivity. The endpoint devices would be designed for durability, availability, and ease of use, enabling parties to immediately connect with confidence amid crises. CATALINK is an internationally-minded solution that has the potential to avert catastrophes amidst rising tensions between adversaries.

This paper is accompanied by the start of our second season of the Fourth Leg podcast: Wake-Up Call
