Piracy is an ongoing hazard in the Gulf of Aden, along the Somalia coast and south along the coast of Africa as well as other areas in the Near East and Southeast Asia. In a six-month period, 78 vessels were boarded worldwide with 561 crew taken hostage and over 20 kidnapped, killed or missing. Violence against crew members continues to increase.
APT is a comprehensive integrated application of ECSI's proprietary perimeter security systems in concert with its over 35 years of expertise protecting sensitive installations from approach and intrusion. The APT System Solution provides automated, seamless integration of:
leading-edge small-target radar that can detect swimmers and small boats at exceptional distances, even in rough seas;
ECSI-exclusive long range day/night cameras and thermal imaging systems that can "see" a small boat 10 nautical miles away in the daytime (5 nautical miles away at night using laser and infrared illuminators), and detect a single human thermal image at a range of 8 nautical miles; and
a long range acoustic device (LRAD) that generates high-clarity voice commands as well as focused deterrent tones at distances up to one nautical mile. Over 25 shipping lines currently use LRAD aboard their vessels.
