Shipboard Defense Systems in collaboration with Mace Personal Defense, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Mace Security International, Inc. has developed a multiline of non lethal, non flammable, environmentally safe defense that can stop the takeover of vessels by pirates.

This proprietary Mace® OC Pepper formula consists of Oleoresin Capsicum, a naturally occurring substance derived from hot peppers. OC Pepper causes an intense burning sensation to the skin, eyes and throat upon contact.  Upon direct contact with eyes, respiratory system and mucous membranes, the active ingredients in the pepper spray will cause eyes to slam shut, coughing, and an intense burning sensation to the skin. Effects last for approximately 45 minutes after contact.
