The PMN Forum in November will be the second time Maritime Arresting Technologies has sponsored the event, and the first time discussing their technology on it’s stage.

“We’re going to focus on seaward security, as land based security is already well catered for,” said Matthew Searle, the company’s Chief Technology Officer.

“We’re very excited to be sharing the stage with the port,” said Mr. Searle, referencing the upcoming co-presentation.

In August, Maritime Arresting Technologies worked with Port Tampa Bay and the Sheriff’s office to implement a series of retractable port security booms which can close off the mouth of a harbor in under six minutes.

After the technology was implemented, the company did training with the Coast Guard and the Sheriff’s office on how to properly and effectively use the security enhancements.

Port Tampa Bay also acquired Maritime Arresting Technologies MK 4 Launcher – another of the port security company’s innovative and one of a kind products which help law enforcement stop unauthorized vessels on the water.
