in the news: Somalia
The Somali pirates sped toward the vessel sailing near the Seychelles, they were horrified to see two boats and a helicopter set off from their target and launch their own counter-attack.
They had failed to spot, in the dazzling sun, that the 'merchant ship' they thought they were intercepting was, in fact, a French naval ship bristling with cannons, radar technology and armed commandos.
When the three pirate boats were spotted heading toward them the frigate Nivose, headed into the sun to camouflage its true identity before turning to confront its attackers.

Maritime Systemic Resilience
Idarat believes that the solution to the problem of maritime security is NOT a military one, nor do we focus on confrontation.
In our opinion a SYSTEMIC response means that we look at ALL aspects of security in order to ensure the RESILIENCE of the vessels or rigs being protected.
