Avant Garde is unique in comparison to other maritime security companies given its composition of personnel. We obtain services of over 20 retired Admirals, Generals, Rear Admirals, and Major Generals, including Admirals from Oman and India. We also have a host of highly trained senior officers of the armed forces, senior officers of the police, civil servants and maritime professionals on our operations.All officers serving for AGMS have received professional training from prestigious military and civil academies. Their knowledge and experience in the military is unparalleled in the region as they were the same military commanders who fearlessly fought a ruthless terrorist outfit which even had maritime capabilities, and successfully cleared the North and East of the country to reinstate civil administration. Personnel employed by us have contributed to develop military plans and strategies in high level defence forums, including the National Security Council, propelling the military victory in Sri Lanka. They now join AGMS to provide their expertise in performing various tasks entailing international maritime security in all its operational, logistic and administrative functions. Avant Garde, thus, has the best manpower resource compared to other international companies due to its battle-hardened, retired armed forces personnel. Our personnel are our pride and  key to Avant Garde’s success in maintaining a competitive edge over other international companies.We use the wealth of experience and insights gained during the three decades of war to introduce new strategies and concepts to the maritime security industry and countering the menace of piracy in the greater Indian Ocean, for which we have received industry-wide admiration and international accolades.
