The Nemesis 5000 is another anti-piracy technology intended as a non-lethal means of preventing pirates from boarding. It may be used in conjunction with other non-lethal means, or in conjunction with armed force (although the manufacturer does not advertise it this way). The system, intended as a cost effective alternative to expensive security teams, works in conjunction with a vessels firefighting system, and creates a high pressure water barrier designed to impede boarders. Prevention of boarding by pirates is perhaps the most effective solution at the moment to Somali piracy. The device is manufactured by Safe Solutions USA, a security company. The Nemesis 5000 was designed by former British SBS and US Navy SEAL commandos.
