Maritime and Coastal Security

Maritime, Coastal and Port security is about protecting the nations sea gateway and maritime borders. Companies worldwide develop and implement security systems to improve coastal and ports surveillance capabilities.

Maritime transport enables trade among all nations and provides the main vehicle for nations imports and exports to the rest of the world. For examples – almost 90% of the EU external freight trade is seaborne, while short sea shipping represents 40% of intra-EU exchanges in terms of ton-kilometers. The quality of life on islands and in peripheral maritime regions depends on good and secure maritime transport services. Each year, more than 400 million passengers embark and disembark in European ports. Overall, maritime trade is an important source of income for almost any economy. Security and surveillance advanced systems are essential on a national level.

Coastal surveillance

Coastal surveillance is essential for creating maritime awareness (‘Coastal Situational Awareness’). The maritime and coastal threats are various:

  • Piracy
  • Armed Robbery
  • Terrorism
  • War and hostile activity
  • Cyber Attacks
  • Smuggling
  • Drug Trafficking
  • Human Trafficking


The latest technological advances enables attackers to use drones, and remote controlled means – alongside “traditional” means and methods – to attack and interfere with the nation’s trade and economy. 

Almenta Groups’ Coastal security solution is a reliable, multi-layered, advanced surveillance system. Supporting manned and unmanned sites along the coast. 

Almenta Group’s solution features long-range coastal surveillance radars, long-range day-night visual sensors, IMSI catchers, Jammers, Anti-drone systems and Mission deployable vehicles. The system is remote-controlled from a central control center. All the data from the sensors deployed in multiple sites and vehicles,  is streamed to the coastal control center via secured communication, where the on-going coastal operational picture is presented, enabling decision-makers to understand the situation and threats, make the right decision in real-time and act in the most effective manner.
