This increase in shipping traffic exerts a considerable pressure maritime security to secure nations against piracy, crime, and terrorism. Maritime illegal activities, such as drug trafficking, illegal fishing, illegal immigration, and weapon movement are constantly on the rise. There has been a significant increase in piracy and hostile maritime incidents (robbery and hijacks), where pirates rob ships and fishing vessels and subsequently, sell the commodities in the black market.

Moutushi Saha, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on homeland security sector, says, “Sea routes, like the Straits of Hormuz, Malacca, and the Gulf of Aden are geographically constrained, and the vessels passing through them face significant challenges while combating piracy. The coast of Somalia poses a major concern with regards to the sophistication of weapon use and the frequency of pirate attacks.”

Deployment of drones for anti-piracy missions

Drones with surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities are being deployed for tracking pirate activities along the coastlines. These drones can act as deterrents as well as reactionary forces against armed maritime pirates. Drones are being used owing to their stealth feature. They have reduced the risk of exposure and can operate in areas that are difficult for humans to reach.

“The UAS is specifically designed for maritime applications and requires two operators to operate the UAS. It will provide the navies with maritime intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance capabilities. Skylark C is suitable for day-night monitoring in diverse weather conditions,” according to Moutushi.

Emergence of smart anti-piracy system

Anti-piracy systems have evolved to become more modular, offering specific solutions based on the type of vessel to be protected. These solutions offer scalable non-lethal responses for protecting the crew, cargo, and the vessel from piracy. They also incorporate advanced electronic systems to initiate automatic responses during threat situations.

BlueDome is a smart anti-piracy system developed by Safran Electronics & Defense. The system offers protection for military and commercial vessels, like Superyachts; container vessels; floating production, storage, and offloading vessels; cruise vessels; and tankers.

Increasing installation of Scanjet anti-piracy solutions

The use of water cannons for anti-piracy is becoming very common. These systems are especially being used to fight Somali pirates. The water cannons can shoot high-pressure water over several meters. This is useful to blow away pirates when they try to climb ships or even when the pirate boats approach ships. The water cannons can be remotely operated to stay safe in case the pirates open fire.

The SCR 360 APR water cannon marine protection system (MPS) is a product offered by Scanjet Marine. The system is made up of three main parts a cannon gun unit, a turbine-powered drive, and a mounting bracket. The system is increasingly being deployed on tankers, car carriers, and passenger ships.

The key vendors are as follows:

  • A.ST.I.M
  • CONTROP Precision Technologies
  • LRAD
  • SAFRAN Group
