Safety and security industries

The maritime safety and security industries 

Increasing globalisation is presenting sea transport with new challenges and threats, which are:

•     Monitoring sea transport to prevent and protect against threats such as terrorist attacks, piracy and illicit trafficking;

•     Supervising maritime activity to protect marine resources, preserve the environment and provide assistance to people and goods.Against this background, which is provoking the introduction of stronger legislative and regulatory measures as well as increased government action at sea in pursuit of a global approach to maritime and environmental challenges, French manufacturers have developed solutions, systems and equipment specially for these fields.

Most of these manufacturers are members of the GICAN Maritime Security, Safety and Environment Committee.

To combat piracy, a work group initiated in 2010 by the Maritime Cluster with the members of the GICAN and Armateurs de France, established a project for the self-protection of ships, a non-lethal self-defence system using automatic subsystems installed on board vessels.

These manufacturers include the leaders of the Defence and Security sectors
