Strict laws need to be enacted and enforced against piracy. Laws requiring public punishment. Do we know what the use of laws written on a piece of paper is to a person who is illiterate? New laws or amended laws do not exactly guarantee an end to piracy, but they can certainly help in ensuring that the educated remain out of this illegal activity. Legalizing Piracy:
As strange as it may sound. Some pirates who engage in illegal trade for "adventure" rather than for profit or earning a living may get jobs in the field. A private person is a private person or private warship authorized by the country's government with letters of marking to attack foreign shipping that enters the territory of the state. Simply put, they are legalized pirates. For example, pirates who can return to their old profession can be trained in the field and thus can afford a life without worrying about being caught. Safe navigation:
There are navigation systems that share pirate data with different sources, identify areas with potential piracy risk, and build the route of the ship's traffic in bypassing them (as in bypassing the storm). Systems such as Marine Digital FOS
not only predict and signal danger, but offer several options for route of the vessel
. The captain and managers in the spiking company only have to choose the right solution that the routeplanner offers. Inbuilt Radars:
Ships with built-in radar are an asset in areas prone to piracy. Pretty expensive alternative, but extremely useful when it comes to preventing attacks. Built-in radar can alert the ship's captain to an impending attack, and the necessary actions can be taken in time to defeat pirate ships, such as speeding up the ship to pirate ships could not come close or call on the reserve Royal Navy and Coast Guard to protect the ship. Satellite warnings:
Satellite GPS can be used to track pirate ships nearby and thus prevent pirate attacks. Similar to built-in radar satellite warnings may prove useful. This is an expensive alternative, but with cooperation between countries, the method can be applied to combat maritime piracy. Self-defense:
The ship's crew must be well trained and focused on conducting anti-piracy exercises. For a ship to be truly safe from pirates, you need people who can fight attacks on the ship. In addition to this, blocking strategies (rather than those implemented during COVID-19) must be trained by the crew so that in the event of an attack they can ward off the pirates. Ship bodyguard:
A cargo ship or tanker can be sent into the waters along with several other vessels for protection. These "bodyguard" ships may hold the nation's naval forces. In the event of a pirate attack, bodyguard/"ship guards" ships can deal with pirates while a real freight/tanker continues its journey. Sting operations:
Sting an operation to figure out a group of pirates seems a tedious task, but in the long run it's one of the best and most complete ways to deter piracy. The "pacifier" ships can be tracked using GPS chips embedded in the item. So the focus will be the customers of pirates, not just the location of part of a criminal group. The entire pirate net can be exposed by effort and financial support.
Piracy has been and will be, many measures are being taken not only at the level of the ship's crew or the management of a shipping company, but also by whole countries that create anti-piracy organizations and introduce military forces to combat naval terrorism, as was the case in Operation Sea Shield, where The US Navy, followed by the Indian Navy, deployed the largest number of ships and on December 16, 2016 ended in success as maritime piracy by Somali pirates was suppressed. And even if this is not the final victory, but a big step towards improving the safety of sailors at sea.
