These mobile platforms are specialised vessels to meet the unique demands of countering maritime threats to our clients; giving us the ability to deliver a fast response to any threats posed on our clients’ vessels. Our fast support vessels host an onboard-armed security team that circum-navigates the client asset to make operations/transits as safe and cost effective as possible.
Sophisticated satellite and radio communication systems are in place to ensure maximum efficiency of the embarked security team – who are in constant contact with our 24/7 Operations Centre who are tracking the vessels and updating them with live intelligence on any recent attacks. From a wide range of options, each FSV is carefully chosen to match the requirements of the client operation.
LGS’ intelligence department provides a threat assessment of the intended route, detailing recent attacks. The composition of the security team will be based upon current piracy threats and weaknesses of the client vessel, to ensure risk mitigation is at it’s highest.
