Latest News: Dryad Advisory Somaila July 2008


Dryad is a wholly privately owned maritime intelligence and operations support consultancy and is not affiliated or endorsed in any way by the Royal Navy.

Dryad does not have access to classified military Intelligence and sources all of its intelligence from it’s own open, electronic and human sources.

Where Dryad’s employees are former members of the armed services, they remain bound by the Official secrets act and so no classified or protected information will be released.

Whilst Dryad aspires to provide the same accuracy of information provided by military intelligence, Dryad reserves the right to release analysis that does not necessarily match the assessment of official sources.

In every case, Dryad recommends that vessels transiting the Gulf of Aden and Indian ocean contact UKMTO Dubai for the latest official assessment of risk.
