Tundra Maritime Defense Services (MDS) has completed Stage 1 of the ISO/PAS 28007 process in collaboration with Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).

Already SAMI Stage 1 and ISO 9001 certified, Tundra MDS have now incorporated a Security Management System (SMS) which they say allows them to demonstrate their reliability and professionalism to potential customers measured against a consistent and highly-demanding International Standard.

Tundra said it is now on track to becoming one of the first PMSC’s to obtain ISO/PAS 28007:2012 certification.

Tundra also said it integrates new technologies into the fight against piracy, including:

• examining ways to ensure that high quality training is rapidly made available in respect of the lawful application of the 100 Series Rules, including the development of simulator training packages through Tundra’s existing exclusivity agreement with Virtra Systems Inc., a provider of judgmental and tactical simulators and in partnership with David Hammond, the author of the 100 Series Rules for the provision of innovative, realistic and immersive training in 100 Series RUF using their Virtra Simulator.
• using their knowledge of the maritime security environment along with the manufacturing expertise of North Eastern Arms and Red Stag Technologies (a subsidiary of the Tundra Group), developing the ISO-compliant RST-15 and RST-15 DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle), which have been specifically designed for use in maritime operations through the use of patented coatings that offer an unmatched level of corrosion resistance and a size and weight that makes it ideal for use in the MARSEC environment.
• a further development of the RST-15,in the RST-15(I), a carbine that has been integrated with a tracking and forensics package that time stamps and records every round that is fired and is fitted with GPS tracking and both an integrated lighting system and a camera that records exactly what the user sees through his sight picture. This technology can be used as a method of sending a real time camera feed to another location, it can identify and record the exact location of the firearm, it can identify and record all rounds that are fired and it can be integrated into other integrated intelligent firearms systems such as MDSAS.

What is ISO/PAS 28007:2012?
The increased threat to commercial shipping by piracy in the Indian Ocean and other areas around the world has led to extensive use of Private Maritime Security Companies (PMSC) that supply PCASP to provide security on board vessels transiting the high risk areas.

ISO/PAS 28007 was published in 2012 due to rapid growth in the number of maritime security companies and the implications of using PCASP (legal issues, safety concerns for seafarers and varying national regulations).

ISO/PAS 28007 gives guidelines containing additional sector-specific requirements, which PMSCs wishing to comply with ISO 28000 can implement to demonstrate that they provide appropriate PCASP services on board ships.
