HMS Pembroke demonstrates water-borne counter-terrorism measures at NAVDEX

posted on 22/02/2011: 1672 views



Royal Navy ship HMS Pembroke is working with UK companies at Abu Dhabi's NAVDEX to provide a live demonstration of a range of techniques designed to counter the threat from terrorists at sea.

During a 15 minute scenario, visitors will see measures to detect and deter attacks from underwater swimmers and fast boats. A suspect boat is seen acting suspiciously in the vicinity of the ship. Simultaneously HMS Pembroke's crew is alerted to the presence of an underwater attacker by the use of a diver-detection sonar. The diver is called using an underwater communications system and ordered to come to the surface. The fast boat tries to make an attack on the ship but is stopped by a protective boom and is then boarded by a specialist team from HMS Pembroke who arrest the crew after identifying them using sophisticated biometric data-capture techniques.

The commanding officer of HMS Pembroke, Lieutenant Commander Angus Essenhigh said," It is a great privilege to be here at NAVDEX supporting UK industry and demonstrating the world-beating technologies available from the UK defence sector. I hope visitors to HMS Pembroke will enjoy the live demonstration which brings together equipment from various UK businesses and the expertise of my ship's company." "The ship has been made to feel very welcome by everyone we have met and we are grateful for the invitation to attend this remarkable exhibition." - Emirates News Agency, WAM
