Divers can pose a serious threat to maritime assets, especially ships moored in ports or harbors or facilities located on the shoreline. As capabilities in countering other types of threats improve, it is reasonable to expect that adversaries will pursue new avenues of terrorism. Technology provided by commercially available underwater propulsion aids and new weapons add to the danger. Many companies have been developing systems that can detect, classify and localize underwater threats. However, current options to counter the threat once detected and localized are generally limited to such options as explosives and nets.
In the free White Paper below, we examine how targeted air guns are being used to deter threats from divers.
