The Buccaneer KIS delivers projectiles designed to deter and disable small fast sea craft at extended range.
With a range of up to 200 meters the Buccaneer KIS uses specialised payloads to lay buoyant netting / line for interdiction operations. The Buccaneer KIS is extremely flexible having a 360 degree rotation and depression and elevation of 45 degrees from the horizontal.
It can be operated remotely from the bridge or control room quickly and safely and uses no explosive or pyrotechnics parts in its use.
The Buccaneer can be loaded with alternative projectiles such as high density smoke, flares, or buoyancy aids.
Projectiles to either:
■ Lay netting over a wide area
■ Lay a buoyant line or lines
These to entangle the assaulting crafts propeller.
■ Dispense airburst smoke or an irritant gas
■ Dispense multiple small projectiles over a wide area – up to a 50 meter square – in a scatter gun approach.
■ Non lethal – like paintballs
■ Less than lethal – like squash balls
■ Lethal – like gravel or golf balls
This provides a layered defense. The lethality can be increased if the approaching craft is not initially detered.
Alternatively, it can deploy:
■ Survival items to a man overboard like a single seat liferaft or buoyancy aids
■ A rope line to shore for mooring, or to another vessel for towing
