<P>MBAD© MBAD® is the acronym for Trident Groups, US Patented, Anti/Counter Piracy technology. MBAD was developed in response to industry re- quests for better protection and increased techno- logical support for ships and crews. The follow- ing is a short list of Anti Piracy devices which are currently being utilized, without great success: ?Projecting sound through a Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD) ?Video camera coverage of gunwales and weather decks ?(OHFWUL¿HGIHQFLQJ ?Water Hoses and other shipboard devices There are two (2) basic problems with these types of piracy defense: 1. 3RVLWLYHLGHQWL¿FDWLRQWKDWFORVHPDQHXYHULQJ trailing vessels intend to board your vessel 2. Unless your crew picks up on the approach AND keeps eyes on the suspect vessel… without exception…your crew will not know they are being pirated until the pi- rates are onboard the vessel. Operators from Trident Group, including the &KLHI(HFXWLYH2I¿FHUKDYHVSHQW\\HDUV boarding ships in the middle of the ocean and ZH.12:ZKDWWKHVSHFL¿FVDUHWKDWDOORZIRU a successful boarding, and more importantly… how to STOP that boarding. From these years of experience, Trident Group has developed a system that protects the vessel from the wa- terline to the gunwale. When MBAD initiates, there is no doubt that unauthorized boarders are attempting to access your vessel. MBAD sup- plies something that other Force Protection (FP) products do not…An early warning system that has both repelling components (Counter Piracy) and alerting components (Anti Piracy) which works BEFORE intruders are on board a vessel. Most other systems are designed to activate once the intruder is over the rail of the vessel, which, means the crew is already playing catch up to Force Protection and is in real trouble. Once an intruder is on board, you are faced with a completely different scenario of which com- pliance by the crew is the only real response if your hope is for crew survival. The majority of successfully averted acts of pi- racy result from the vessel being aware that they are being targeted. Currently, this awareness re- quires greater attention to radars, increased deck watches, and possibly embarked security teams. The need for increased focus on possible board- ers is a burden to crews and vessel operations. MBAD does not require an additional man- power load at all. Once the system is installed, it will immediately alert the Bridge, and other Key Crew Members, that climbers are about to board your vessel. Simultaneously, as MBAD alerts the ship, it sends out a repelling medium that will drive all but the most determined and prepared climbers away from your vessel. Once MBAD alerts the bridge that there are climbers at the waterline, immediate implemen- tation of vessel Anti-piracy SOPs can be under- taken by the crew. This immediate response will be crucial to repelling unauthorized boarders. Simultaneously, the repelling components of MBAD will drive away the climbers AND other supporting vessels. MBAD is designed with the following key points in mind: ?Repel Un-Authorized Boarders In Port, at Anchor, Underway ?Alert Crew of Attempted Boarding ?Strengthen Ships Security and Ships Security Plan ?Enhance Current Crew Security Capability Without Crew Increase Trident Group Inc. © 2009 ?Alert Crew of a Man-Overboard Situation ?Unmanned, 24/7 Security & Safety Moni- toring ?Scalable to Any Vessel Size ?Private Sector Merchant and Military Ap- plications ?6SHFL¿F2QVFHQHDQGIRFXVHG3URWHFWLRQ ?*OREDO$OHUW1RWL¿FDWLRQWKURXJK*066 ?360° Waterline and Gunwale Protection )LQDOO\\RQFHWKHVXEWOHFRQ¿JXUDWLRQRI0$ begins to be recognized by pirates, this will, in itself, become a deterrent to piracy. The system is simple, durable, effective, and is free from complicated software and expensive components. MBAD works while underway, DWDQFKRURUSLHUVLGHDQGLV¿WWHGVSHFL¿FDOO\\ PER SHIP. Because of this property, MBAD is the perfect Force Protection system for vessels of almost any size or shape. MBAD is easily adapted to Gas and Oil Platforms as well as to Passenger vessels for SOLAS (Man-Overboard) use. </p> <UL><LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1581/klsfbldsg/1/1/">Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1581/klsfbldsg/2/2/">Inside-Front-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1581/klsfbldsg/3/3/">Page-3</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1581/klsfbldsg/4/4/">Page-4</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1581/klsfbldsg/5/5/">Page-5</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1581/klsfbldsg/6/6/">Page-6</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1581/klsfbldsg/7/7/">Page-7</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publication/1581/klsfbldsg/8/8/">Back-Cover</a></LI> <LI><a href="http://www.stallionpublishers.com/publications/1581/x/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">site map</a></LI> </UL>
