Layer 3: Approach discouragement
All efforts should be made to discourage any threat full approach by the criminals to the victim ship. As soon it is clear that such an approach is unavoidable, clear and powerful messages will have to be sent to indicate that the ship is well protected and prepared to counter any attack. For example; sounding of alarm, lighting on deck, barking of dogs, long range sound devices, laser beams, water jets, electro-magnetic pulse etc.
Fixed Sea Laser Dazzler
The fixed sea laser dazzler is a 5000 mW high power non-lethal laser dazzler on a stabilized IP controllable pan and tilt platform. This deterrent technology can be integrated with multiple camera sensors. The non-lethal laser dazzler allows the user to choose between suppression/deterrence, hail/warning, and illumination operations. The Integrated camera sensors can be day/night color, Thermal, ultra-low light sCMOS, or SWIR cameras for extended performance capabilities. The sealed optical payload is mounted on a pan/tilt platform designed for 24/7 use in harsh all-weather environments. Video target tracking and radar ‘slew-to-cue’ are optional features.
- High laser power, 5000mW – 24X Day / Night color camera
- Up to 120°/sec slew rate- Solid vibration tolerant for vehicle mounted applications
- Fully sealed for outdoor/marine applications (IP67)
- Multiple control interfaces: Joystick, RS-232/485/422 and Ethernet Options
- Integrated radar tracking software
- Radar ‘slew-to-cue’ – Thermal camera
- Ultra low light sCMOS camera – SWIR camera
Rifle Laser Dazzler
The non-lethal laser dazzler is a completely self-contained, high power green laser device that provides the longest range non-lethal deterrence of any technology currently available. The dazzler is an ergonomically designed system, which enables the user to apply the power of the UC-5 laser module on static and moving targets effectively.
The non-lethal laser dazzler received an outstandingly positive response from operational users. The non-lethal laser dazzler gives the user a balanced ergonomically shaped weapon system, with embedded control electronics, power and fire safety switches, picatinny rails, textured grips and emergency battle sights (EBS). The system also hosts a changeable, rechargeable battery system providing extended operational usage.
- High power non-lethal green laser—5000mW – Certified eye-safe by IEC regulations
- Continuous operation in excess of 60 minutes between charges
- Fully sealed for outdoor applications (IP66) and sturdy construction for use in arduous environments
- A stable rifle design with all the additional available ancillaries the user requires
High powered search light
A Xenon searchlight can create a light beam of 7.5 nautical miles. The light beam is so strong and powerful that it can dazzle people and disturb a potential pirate attack. Due to its unique design with cooling chambers and fans, the searchlight is capable of continuous operation without down time, which is important when the vessel is travelling through high risk areas. The searchlight is a great dual use tool that enables ships to search and detect incoming threats.
Directional Sound Cannon
Directional sound cannons can warn an attacker by being able to communicate (pre-recorded or live) messages to unbearable extend and includes disturbing sound alarms with intense power. These tools will allow your vessel to communicate sentences in any language to external vessels when feeling threatened at distance.
Powerful search light
Handheld search lights create high intensity illumination with an unparalleled output of 12 million candle power. The light is battle tested by armed forces and has served many government agencies for over twenty-five years.
Rope launchers are similar to line throwing appliances, which are kept standard on board of every vessel. A rope launcher will pneumatically launch several projectiles with ropes interconnected and therefore creating a physical barrier which can trap the propeller of an attacking vessel.
Based on the old concept of defending your vessel with fire hoses, these anti-pirate water cannons are the world’s most advanced water cannons against maritime criminals. The cannons are constructed of stainless steel and include robotic nozzles. The primary components of systems are based on standard off-the-shelf components. The cannons can also be custom-build with a variety of advanced components from basic to highly advanced and integrated vessel networked systems
