Anti-Piracy Training Provided by IMSN to Maine Maritime Academy Students

From a recent news article about anti-piracy training provided by the International Maritime Security Network (IMSN) to students of the Maine Maritime Academy:  "
CASTINE, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --The "State of Maine" is docked safely in Castine now, but what if it were targeted by pirates in more dangerous waters?  Thats exactly why Maine Maritime Academy students and crew are training to defend themselves against pirate attacks.  Captain Ralph Pundt is an MMA instructor and partner in IMSN, the security firm that is helping to put on this particular training scenario.  He showed us one of the ships anti-piracy systems called the Trident Shield, which shoots water down the sides of the ship to keep pirates from climbing on board."
