Floating innovations on display at IDEX Show 2019


A British company’s boat stopping systems which can quickly stop boats used in terrorism and narco trafficking without harming the boat or its passengers is making waves at the IDEX Show in Abu Dhabi (17th-21st February 2019).

BCB International has developed a new range of boat stopping systems which use compressed air and specialised vessel disabling projectiles.

BCB International Boss, Andrew Howell, said: ”BCB’s boat stopping systems were inspired by the police road stingers used to stop speeding and runaway cars. Our ports, docks and rivers are vulnerable to piracy, acts of terrorism and narcotics trafficking. Provided in boat-mounted and handheld formats, our non-lethal fast boat stopping systems ingeniously use compressed air and a range of specialised projectiles to intercept vessels weighing up to 3 tonnes and rigid inflatable boats travelling at a speed of 45 knots in seconds. More and more law enforcement authorities are using our boat stopping systems to protect coastal waters and waterways.”

The Boat Stopping Systems are on display on stand C8-005.
