The RGES S100 static barrier system may be easily and quickly installed from a RHIB by lightly trained staff. Typical installations include anchor buoys at 90m intervals outfitted with radar reflectors and photocell controlled lamps.
Applications may include:
- Protection of a ship in a foreign port
- Restricting access to a waterway or naval base
- To form a barrier around critical infrastructure, either on or offshore
- Used as an ‘in-tow’ payload to protect assets while underway
The RGES S100 is a non-lethal option for boat stopping. While forces on the crew of the non-compliant vessel are controlled by forward momentum at the moment of impact, the occupants of the boat are generally unharmed.
System costs are quoted on a case by-case basis, and are affected by water depth, sea floor composition, and tidal variances.
