Typhon announced today it is launching its marine convoy escort service, effective immediately, according to Homeland Security Today.
The maritime security service is being offered to ship operators transiting the Gulf of Aden, Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean.
Close protection vessels shadow client vessels, using surveillance, detection and early warning capabilities to identify and assess any likely or suspected threats. The convoys travel in a protected “envelope,” which is intended to make it difficult for pirates to enter the “protection zone” to launch an attack.
The solution is said to be able to detect piracy by sea, using radar; by air, using satellite; and by land, using an onshore operations center in the United Arab Emirates.
