New Anti-Piracy Firm Launched

Over at The Maritime Executive, a new kind of Anti-Piracy firm has been launched by vets - Skye Maritime:

...The firm helps clients by providing services aimed at understanding and predicting changes in pirate threat tactics, techniques and procedures. In-turn they offer protection to combat those threats, including detailed risk assessments, physical security consulting, and embedded armed teams. Their security professionals are carefully screened, receive extensive follow-on threat-based training, and deploy with superior insurance, weapons and equipment. Skye Maritime's operations are centered on carefully vetted rules for the use of force and standard operating procedures supported by a 24/7 maritime operations center to ensure each mission is executed with extreme precision. Their procedures and credentials have been carefully vetted and approved by a major U.S. shipping company who now enlists Skye Maritime as an authorized service vendor...

Sounds like a good time to me!

Update: The President of Skye Maritime is Alex Martin who was the US Marine Corps Captain in charge of the raid force responsible for the successful take down of the Magellan Star off the coast of Somalia.
