Trident Group Launches Maritime Boarding Alert

Trident Group announced the launch of its Maritime Boarding Alert Device (MBAD) today. An integrated perimeter threat detection and repel platform, MBAD was developed by former Naval Special Warfare operators as a solution to prevent unauthorized access to maritime assets. MBAD is a round-the-clock security system, requiring no crew interaction.

When activated by a security breach, the system uses multi-modal sensory overload to impair the intruder s sight and hearing for several minutes while it alerts crew members, giving them the time needed to control the situation. Maritime crime is a significant threat in many parts of the world, said Thomas Rothrauff, chief executive officer, Trident Group. MBAD was designed specifically for the maritime environment in response to clients security concerns that unfettered access to a maritime asset presents.

MBAD provides a patented and unique layer of protection not available elsewhere in the industry. The device is a non-lethal deterrent, based on our team s unique maritime security experience, and is applicable in any maritime environment without Flag State restriction. MBAD features durable marine-grade components with built-in redundancy.

MBAD provides scalable protection accompanied by world-class customer service, including off site virtual maintenance and troubleshooting assistance 24/7/365.

Marine quick reaction force combats enemy threats during MEFEX-15

26 Feb 2015 Marine quick reaction force combats enemy threats during MEFEX-15 By Lance Cpl. Jenna Loofe, Defense Media Activity MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, California — Marines with 1st Law Enforcement Battalion, employed a Quick Reaction Force to combat imminent enemy threats during I Marine Expeditionary Force Exercise 2015, aboard Camp Pendleton, California Feb.

22, 2015. I MEF conducted a large-scale exercise to evaluate its training and readiness to deploy in support of combatant command operations.

It is designed to allow I MEF command element staff and Marine Headquarters Group to rehearse and execute their responsibilities as the I MEF main command post. The culminating event captured all of the training the Marines received throughout the last two weeks in support of MEFEX-15, including machine gun drills, vehicle formations, tactical site exploitation, gathering of evidence and QRF rundown drills. What we just did was a QRF to go snatch up a known high-value individual, and try to stop them from hitting us with indirect fire here on the forward operating base, said 1st Lt.

Jacob Rittenhouse, platoon commander, Charlie Company, 1st Law Enforcement Battalion, I Marine Headquarters Group. The Marines knew someone or something was influencing the local nationals, and over a half-hour period, the Marines observed activity in the target area, said Rittenhouse. There were multiple armed military-aged individuals with a mortar tube who began laying sand bags down, and as soon as the Marines confirmed the FOB activated the QRF, the QRF went out to capture the individual responsible for bringing all of those people together as well as that mortar tube, he added.

An infantry platoon was conducting a raid as a QRF for the FOB that we are on right now, and in that infantry platoon, we had a Law Enforcement Detachment, from the LEB attached to the infantry platoon, said Rittenhouse. The infantry platoon includes dog handlers, military working dogs and criminal investigation agents who carry out investigations and recover forensic evidence, as well as some of our Special Reaction Team members which are the military version of SWAT. All of those enablers come together to form an LED, and then we attach to an infantry platoon and support them in their operations.

The security element posted up four corner security around the objective site once the house was identified and the security element maintained defense, allowing the assault group to approach the house, make entry, clear it and take care of any remaining enemy. Once the team made entry into the house, they found an individual lying inside the door, said Gunnery Sgt. Brian Spiehs, company gunnery sergeant, Charlie Co., 1st LEB, I MHG.

As they made it around to the back of the house, they had a bodyguard and a HVI, who is the planner of this exercise we are conducting up here. During the mission, the MEF was about to take some indirect fire that, had this been a real scenario, could have caused some fatalities that would have disrupted some communication, said Rittenhouse. MEF is helping coordinate across the Marine Corps during invasion-style scenarios, so had they lost communication that would have thrown a wrench in the plans for moving in the right direction.

The Marines have been planning, rehearsing and practicing the scenario over the last two weeks to get in the mindset.

Need for New Maritime Organization in Asia

There are calls for a new institution to manage Asia s maritime disputes – a proposal for Maritime Organization for Security and Cooperation (AMOSC) is in the offing. Last year (2014) brought new tensions to the South China Sea, particularly as Chinese authorities sought to establish a series of island-like structures in the midst of the disputed Spratly Islands. Such provocative actions, however, are unlikely to generate sufficient political will among the other countries of the region to establish a Political-Security Community under the auspices of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) by the 2015 deadline.

But were this collection of ten countries to pool their resources into a security community or even a security alliance, it would be an impressive force and a potential deterrent to aggression in the South China Sea. The varied nature of the waters disputed in the South China Sea particularly requires the flexibility offered by corvettes among ASEAN countries. According to a report in the Diplomat, Ken Sato, president of the Institute for International Policy Studies (IIPS) said that East Asia still does not have a permanent organization or regional body to address maritime security issues.

He proposed the establishment of AMOSC.

AMOSC’s central goal would be to prevent and manage existing maritime disputes between countries by enhancing domain awareness, improving capacity-building and enacting confidence-building measures.

Sato also said in his remarks that this would be a very timely proposal given Japan s recent meetings with both China and the United States as well as the fact that 2015 marks the year of ASEAN-China maritime cooperation.

Pakistan’s Army chief meets PM Sharif, discusses security issues – Zee News

Islamabad: Pakistan’s Army Chief General Raheel Sharif on Friday discussed with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif the progress of the action plan formed to rid the country of terrorism in the aftermath of Peshawar school massacre. The Chief of Army Staff (COAS) in his meeting with Prime Minister discussed “matters relating to the implementation of National Action Plan (NAP) for combating terrorism and extremism,” said an official statement. But officials privy to the meeting said the COAS also briefed the Prime Minister about his recent visit to Beijing where he held meetings with top Chinese political and military leadership.

Following the brutal Taliban assault on an Army-run school that killed nearly 150 people, mostly children, Pakistan evolved the NAP to eliminate militancy from the country. The Army chief and the Prime Minister also discussed the joint parade of Pakistan’s armed forces on March 23, and the steps required for its success. Reports, unconfirmed by the Pakistan government, have said that China’s President Xi Jinping might be the chief guest at the parade to be held after a gap of seven years.

The joint military parade by the three branches of the armed forces had been the hallmark of the Pakistan Day celebrations; it features military hardware and cultural activities. The last military parade was organised on March 23, 2008 during the regime of Gen Pervez Musharraf. During today’s meeting, Gen Sharif also briefed the Prime Minister about operation Zarb-i-Azb in North Waziristan and Khyber-1 in tribal regions of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, against militants.

The military campaign in the two regions has been intensified following the Peshawar attack.

Pakistan has ended a six-year moratorium on executions in terror-related cases and pledged to crack down on all militant groups.

Man, 65, stabs woman who rejects him – Bangkok Post

Man, 65, stabs woman who rejects him A 65-year-old security guard was caught on video stabbing a 30-year-old woman colleague multiple times at an apartment building in central Bangkok because she turned him down. The vicious attack happened on Dec 28 last year. The woman, Buasorn Chaikote, sustained many stab wounds and had to stay in hospital for 14 days.

Her attacker, Kaew Kemthong, went into hiding in Chon Buri. On Thursday, police found Mr Kaew hiding in a hotel in Pattaya. Ms Buasorn told police that Mr Kaew tried to flirt with another woman at the apartment, but she turned him down.

The security guard then turned his attention to her and frequently gave her gifts. “I didn’t want his gifts but I didn’t want him to feel bad.

He might have thought that I also liked him, but it wasn’t like that,” Ms Buasorn was quoted as saying by the police.

Mr Kaew confessed that he was the person who stabbed Ms Buasorn, according to police.
