Unifire’s(name of a manufacturer) Anti-Pirate Water Cannon Systems are extremely powerful, yet non-lethal, devices for getting tough with pirates and hijackers. The systems are comprised of up to 8 powerful water cannons, which are strategically placed around the ship.
The cannons draw seawater from the ship’s existing fire main. The cannons can be networked together for simple control from the bridge.
The Force 80 water cannon sprays up to 5000 liters (1,350 US Gallons) per minute at pressures of up to 10 bars (145 PSI).
Unified says their cannons remotely control the high-pressure water stream from the safety of the bridge or citadel, directly onto pirates and into their skiff. Moreover, they can be controlled in semiautomatic mode by deploying in prerecorded spray patterns, and can even be combined with other tracking systems for fully automatic protection.
Since these systems are non-lethal, they avoid the numerous pitfalls and complications associated with equipping ships with armed guards, while still providing ships a powerful weapon with which to defend themselves. Moreover, these cannons are also highly effective in suppressing fires, adding further to the overall safety of a ship
