Multi-Hazard Protection Engineering is a discipline that seeks to counteract, mitigate, and, where possible, prevent combined catastrophic events, whether natural or man-made, by integrating the best practices in societal safety, homeland security, emergency management, national defense, civil protection, environmental protection, and human factors.

Established in the U.S. in 1995 by Gian-Marco Cabibbe as a boutique aerospace & defense engineering firm, CABIBBE is today a leading specialist in maritime multi-hazard protection engineering for the safeguarding of people, vessels, facilities, and assets against natural or man-made disasters in complex, contested, non-permissive, and often high-risk environments.  We, at CABIBBE, have taken this discipline one giant leap forward by integrating best practices with advanced solutions stemming from the space industry, from the military-industrial complex, and from the R&D departments of leading universities worldwide.

Additionally, CABIBBE is a renowned workplace safety advisor, as well as an expert in the safety of commercial & military aviation operations.

CABIBBE is based in Belgrade, Serbia and has the main operations office in Trieste, Italy.  It is also registered in Finland & Germany and has representative offices in Russia, Türkiye, and Cambodia.
