of piracy have occurred for as long as people have travelled by water,
evolving as opportunities for enrichment increased.
What has always set piracy apart from robbery and theft of similar
value committed on land, however, is the challenge it sets to international
authorities and the threat it poses to trade.
An estimated 90% of the world’s traded goods travel by sea. Huge supertankers
and container ships, together with a massive flotilla of smaller merchant
vessels, carry everything from oil to motor vehicles to their ultimate
They need to satisfy stringent maritime security laws but that recently-introduced
legislation does not address a new threat that is now making headline
news around the world – the pirates of Somalia.
We believe that this increased awareness, supplemented by the necessary
skills to deal with a situation, is the key to defeating the majority
of incidents likely to be experienced by commercial vessels and bring
their vulnerability to 0% in pirate attacks.
The threat of Somali pirates has grown in size and in capabilities.
They have a command and control structure, logistics experts, intelligence
operatives, and most important - financiers.
In our view there are two main points to be considered in order to
tackle this growing threat of maritime piracy:
1. An Onboard Security Team - A
solution based on response teams quartered on the ship.
2. Technological solutions - A
solution based on various technological means.
The choice of the best solution or integration of solutions can only
be done after surveying the client’s exact needs, assets and threats.
Matcal International, through its training division, is also capable
of providing training for merchant marine crews at any given level
and / or related services to recognize and avoid potential threat
and the ability to respond to incidents in any of a number of hostile
or hazardous environments. As veterans of various specialforces units
and other security services, Matcal International security protection
teams have strong counter-terrorism qualifications, knowledge and
experience in various covert and overt security missions.
