The Neil Robertson Stretcher Neil Robertson’s Naval service started in 1899 taking him across the world from the Outer Hebrides to Africa, and during World War 1 he was serving on HMS Blake. John Neil Robertson died at the age of 41 on 22 December 1914 and was buried, with full Naval honours, in Plymouth, England. The first Neil Robertson stretcher was made at some point between 1906 and 1912. However, it is not known to what extent he contributed to it’s design. It is almost certain that he was part of a long list of contributors including Captain Fitzherbert, Captain C.A.W. Hamilton and Fleet Surgeon I.M. McElwee. Manufactured from high quality duck canvas and ramin slats, the Neil Robertson stretcher has been widely used for 100 years. The slats are stitched into the canvas to ensure both rigidity and casualty security. Ideal for casualty evacuation from confined spaces, or where vertical lifts only can be executed.

Manufactured from PU coated polyester webbing and reinforced with carbon fibre rods, the Fibrelight Cradle is tough, durable, lightweight and easy to handle; it is 1.3m wide by 3m long and weighs approximately 5kg. The Fibrelight Cradle has many different applications however its primary function is that of a system to recover casualties from the water in the medically preferred horizontal position. To rescue a casualty in this way the cradle is secured at the inboard end and the outboard end is held outwards by hand, boat hook or bridle depending on the size of the craft. The casualty is then guided on to the cradle and the outboard end is hauled up, bringing them safely on board. Once recovered the casualty can be kept in the cradle if necessary, for use as a stretcher.

security buccaneer Buccaneer The instability of failed or failing states is increasingly spilling out into the maritime environment. Threats of terrorism, criminal acts and piracy are impacting upon marine business to a greater extent than ever before. Recognising that the world military naval forces cannot be everywhere at once BCB International has developed a non lethal counter measure to acts of piracy. The Buccaneer has been designed as a light weight air pressurized launcher to deter and defeat small fast sea craft at long range. Capable of reaching ranges of up to 850 meters the Buccaneer’s specialised projectiles layer entangling netted lines across the surface of the water disabling outboard engines as they wrap around the prop. The Buccaneer can be used from shore locations such as harbour installations, on offshore Platforms or from on board ships. The Buccaneer is extremely flexible; Mounted on a slew ring it can be manually directed to face any area of threat through 360 degrees. Alternatively it can be locked in place and operated remotely from up to 300 meters away – for example from the bridge or other safe area. Alternative projectiles such as high visibility smoke and splash projectiles can be used for maximum deterrence. Recovery lines, individual lifeboats, lifejackets and buoyancy aids can also be launched from the Buccaneer. • Gimbal & Slew ring – 360 degree arc • High Vis smoke & splash projectiles • Entangling Line projectiles • Magazine system, for multiple successive use – quick to reload Code: BUC001

Buccaneer Light Weight Interceptor (LWI) The non-lethal anti-piracy solution.

Key Features:

The Buccaneer Light Weight Interceptor (LWI) has been designed by BCB Marine to provide a non-lethal security solution to stop small, fast moving craft engaged in narcotic-trafficking, piracy and terrorist acts on open water, rivers and harbour areas.

• Simple to use and maintain

Using compressed air, and no explosive or pyrotechnics, the Buccaneer LWI fires a specialised entrapment device which catches on a target vessel and applies up to 10 tonnes worth of drag against its forward momentum.

• Remote Activation

During rigorous and extensive trials and development, the Buccaneer LWI proved it is capable of bringing a twin 250hp engine 8 meter Rigid Inflatable Boat from a speed of 40 knots to a dead stop within a matter of meters.

• Interchangeable on a UMG (Universal Machine Gun) mount

The Buccaneer LWI is able to fire 200 meters of entrapping line, either to the side of the launching vessel, or directly ahead giving it unparalleled flexibility. The entire system is made of extremely robust and light weight composite materials making the Buccaneer LWI easily transportable from vessel to vessel whilst also able to withstand the harsh environment of the open sea.

• Uses compressed air – no pyrotechnics

• Light Weight

• Robust and weather protected • Extensive range

• Varied projectiles available

• 360 degree capabilities

Fitting options include either a fixed bespoke mounting system or 360 degree traversable mount utilising the popular Universal Gun Mount enabling operators to transition from a non-lethal posture to a lethal posture in minutes. Each Buccaneer LWI is provided complete with an air pressure system as well as a fully recoverable and reusable entrapment system. BCB Marine also deliver full training on the Buccaneer LWI either in the UK or overseas ensuring that each operator is intimately familiar with the easy to use system. Pricing options include additional spare equipment, extended system warranty and servicing program meaning that the Buccaneer LWI can be brought into operation and kept in operation with the minimum of effort.
