Shipping Group joins Intelligence Community in promoting stability and peace from every port around the world. The launch of HUSH, LLC. makes new revenue available for ship operators and improves security by turning thousands of maritime vessels into surveillance platforms. HUSH hubs provide a global network at sea-level to curb piracy, terrorism, and crime.
- (1888PressRelease) June 17, 2011 - Majority Partners In-Q-Tel and I.M. Skaugen announce the launch of Harrison Udall and Skaugen Holdings, LLC. (HUSH). This venture capitalizes on the complementary strengths of frontline intelligence assets and shipping insiders as well as the untapped potential of a blue sea market currently free of competitors. Head-quartered in Manama, Bahrain, HUSH enjoys proximity to parent operations and strategic access to the cargo vessels of our clients.
HUSH, LLC has the advantage of being the only provider of our unique working vessel surveillance hubs. This equipment is an overarching interface between computer systems, communications, radar, and other data sources on board host vessels. Surveillance hubs allow vessel owners to compile a comprehensive database detailing every word, action, and observation made by man or machine on board their vessels.
This union brings key players together to create a unique enterprise dedicated to providing high-quality, value-added solutions in support of the U.S. and other governments' defense/logistics and nation building initiatives.
In addition to surveillance hubs, HUSH offers an optional service relationship to ship owners who operate vessels in strategic waters. Select partners will be provided with free surveillance hubs and complimentary equipment as well as a monthly in depth analysis of their surveillance hub database. Some vessel owners will be offered a host fee for equipment installed on board their vessels, this new revenue stream will significantly increase vessel profitability.
HUSH, LLC is a historic partnership which unites intelligence technology with maritime access. We turn the chaotic traffic of the crowed sea into an energetic source of optimized intelligence in service to peace, stability, and profit.
In-Q-Tel has vast experience and valuable resources vested in computerized surveillance systems as well as key relationship assets throughout the intelligence community. Being masters of encryption, database engineering, voice recognition, and tie-in technologies, In-Q-Tel ensures unparalleled capability within HUSH LLC.
