The Triton Shield Anti-Piracy System (pat. pending) was developed as a multi-layered defense package designed to DETECT, DETER, and DEFEND against piracy on the high seas. The system incorporates several IMSN services which include training, education, technological deterrents, IMSN Force Protection teams, and the originally-designed, custom-made, non-lethal, Triton Shield Device.
Application of the system starts in the classroom with IMSN's Piracy Defense Course to teach crew members how to efficiently detect and evaluate threats. In addition, IMSN also provides high-tech methods to detect any ships that enter a one mile perimeter around an IMSN client ship. With the Triton Shield APS's specialized camera system, a ship will be able to determine the difference between a fishing boat and a pirate craft, day or night.
Of course, detection alone is never enough. The Triton Shield APS was developed with maximum deterrence in mind. IMSN provides several options to harden vulnerable areas by updating passive security measures on board a ship. Meanwhile, the innovative Triton Shield Device is designed to create an active deterrent around the perimeter of a ship. While an IMSN team will monitor the initial installation aboard every ship, the device is simple, easy-to-use, and easy-to-maintain.
Finally, should deterrence fail, the Triton Shield APS includes an armed Force Protection team as the last line of defense. All IMSN Force Protection team members are fully vetted and come from military and or law enforcement backgrounds. IMSN teams operate under the principles of force continuum to ensure that all possible options are exhausted before lethal force is used.
The Triton Shield APS is individually tailored to suit each client ship. Please call (724) 338-4154 for pricing and more information.
