Law enforcement looks on as speedboat driver demolishes his own engine in the name of greater safety for professional mariners in a Florida display of a new maritime security product by Alcyonics along with partner firm Knowledge Bridge International.

Among the guests in attendance were a large, U.S.-based oil and gas exploration company and a representative of the Republic of the Marshall Islands Ship Registry.

A small speedboat hydroplaned at top speed toward a series of small buoys.  As the speedboat zipped between the buoys, it came to a jarring halt, its engine leaping out of the water and coughing a great cloud of mist into the air as the boat was totally disabled by Alcyonics' security system. The engine sat, completely seized, attached to a cracked hull, leaving no doubt in the observers' minds that the Alcyonics system had performed its function.

The Alcyonics Fixed-Site Entanglement System™ is designed to provide a full-perimeter access control system for critical assetson the water, such as offshore oil and natural gas rigs.  It provides critical standoff distance from threats, and establishes a safe operating zone within its boundaries.  Any small to mid-sized craft that attempts an unauthorized crossing finds itself dead in the water, just like today's aggressor boat.  "The system worked as advertised," one member of the delegation remarked.
