Designed by Former Navy SEALS, MBAD Provides Round-the-Clock Security and Access Denial for Gas and Oil Industry Assets Near Shore and In Field

Trident Group's introduces first-of-its-kind MBAD (Maritime Boarding Alert Device)

Trident Group's new MBAD (Maritime Boarding Alert Device), a non-lethal deterrent, was designed by former Navy SEALS specifically for the maritime environment.

Today, Trident Group, a provider of security and consulting services to many of the world’s largest maritime entities, announced the launch of its Maritime Boarding Alert Device, also known as MBAD. An integrated perimeter threat detection and repel platform, MBAD was developed by former Naval Special Warfare operators as a solution against unauthorized access to maritime assets.

Once installed, 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 get the situation under control.

“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. Once installed, the system is easy to operate and requires little maintenance. MBAD provides scalable protection accompanied by world-class customer service, including off site “virtual” maintenance and troubleshooting assistance 24/7/365, providing crews peace of mind.

MBAD is available now. To order or find out more, contact Trident Group Operations at (757) 479-4422 or by e-mail to TGINC(at)gotridentgroup(dot)com (Attention MBAD Orders).
