Sovereign Global (https://gb.so-global.com/)

Guardian Maritime (http://www.guardian-maritime.com/)

A new and deceptively simple solution to the problem of unwanted boarding under sail, at anchor or in port. Unlike razor wire, the GUARDIAN™ units are quick, simple and safe to install. The GUARDIAN™ ship protection system is a BMP 4 compliant installation, which forms part of a vessel’s layered defence system. It provides worldwide 24/7 protection against stowaways, robbery and piracy for vessels, crew and cargo at sea, anchor or in port. It is also highly effective for use on static installations such as oilrigs.
