MMWC LAYERED DEFENCE SYSTEM
The concept of a Layered Defence System is not new and is used extensively in other industries – from aviation to IT software.
The model acknowledges that any single defence may be flawed and therefore a series of different defences should be used to cover the gaps in the others' protective capabilities.
MMWC has adapted this method for the maritime industry to provide an effective non-lethal approach to vessel security.
Aims of a Layered Defence System:
- To prevent unauthorised boarding of your vessel without the use of firearms
- Provide early detection of a threat
- Allow sufficient time for coalition forces to assist you in the event of an incident
- Allow sufficient time for crew to find a safe area within the vessel
With a Layered Defence System, your safety is affordable, achievable and inexcusable!
How Does a Layered Defence System Work?
Underpinned by training, a Layered Defence System is built on the following equation.
Preparation + Early Detection = Safety + Time
Each layer of defence is designed to stop or delay
