Stop terrorist attacks with the Barrier method
The world’s ports are the arteries of global trade; they also handle potential WMDs on a daily basis. Ships carrying thousands of tons of toxic or explosive chemicals docked near a city centre are assets that need protecting. Maritime Arresting Technologies manufacture rapidly deployable port security booms that can close off a waterway in minutes to protect vulnerable ships in port from waterborne attack (the landward side of ports tend to be protected by “ guns, gates and guards”).
The low cost barriers (around $200 per foot) keep out unauthorised vessels and can prevent catastrophic loss of life and costs of billions of dollars in damage and lost trade.
The risk of an attack on ports worldwide is rising due to the emergence of Hybrid warfare and use of deniable Irregular forces. Port security is vitally important as Nation states seek ways to damage foes without being openly hostile.
