FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) – Global Ocean Security Technologies (GOST – formerly Paradox Marine) has launched GOST Australia to distribute its marine security and vessel tracking systems in Australia.
GOST Australia will be headed by Blake Cooper, Managing Director of Queensland-based Atlantis Security. “The GOST security products range meets the needs of the Australian recreational, commercial and maritime communities and exceeds all relevant Australian Quality Standards,” Cooper said. “We look forward to establishing strategic partnerships with installers and distributors with exceptionally high standards and excellent track records for professionalism and customer service,” he added.

One of the new products in the GOST range is the GOST Cloak system. Most property loss occurs in the first initial minutes of a break-in, before police or security teams have had a chance to respond. The GOST Cloak system is designed to provide protection in the critical time gap between onboard alarm activation and the response team’s arrival.
In a matter of seconds, the GOST Cloak system fills the protected vessel interior with an impenetrable cloud of smoke that makes the intruder disoriented and confused and forces them off the vessel until the response team arrives. This prevents damage or loss of property on the vessel.
The fog is created by vaporizing a specially formulated glycol solution. Glycol is classified as a foodstuff and is found in many day-to-day substances such as toothpaste and deodorants. The vapor produced is a dense, white fog which reduces visibility to less than 30 cm, practically no visibility, but which, under normal usage, is harmless to anything aboard a yacht.

GOST Acoustic Barrier – can function as a sound barrier or as a traditional siren. GOST Acoustic Barrier effectively stops intruders in their tracks by generating a patented unbearable pattern, frequency and intensity noise.

GOST Immobilizer – The new GOST Immobilizer is a simple yet effective device for protecting tenders, outboard boats, or Jet Skis from theft. The system is controlled via key fob and when armed will prevent the engine from starting. It allows a low amount of current draw through the GOST Immobilizer to power things like stereo memory and other low power consumption components. When armed, it blocks high current draw from the battery as the starter is engaged. When someone is attempting to start the vessel, it will not start and the siren will sound for a predetermined set time.
