About Us


One of the Rook's very strategic attachments is the Armored Deployment Platform.  The custom built NIJ Level IV platform includes sloping partial roof cover, and floor-to-roof front shield consisting of sliding center door and batwing doors on the outer edges, plus independent power for two Go Lights.  The ADP provides room for up to four fully-dressed officers and is equipped with four locking gun ports, four bullet proof glass sight ports, and two infrared video cameras attached to the front of the platform with video feed to the equipment operator and one rear infrared video camera on the Rook.

When the Armored Deployment Platform is mounted on the vehicle, the operator can raise it to 11 feet so that entry can be made on both the first and second floors, and the roof.  In a vehicle takedown, the platform can also be slanted downward so shots can be fired into a car without endangering pedestrians or other passersby.

The ADP will allow a bomb squad to be delivered closer to the proximity of a bomb eliminating long walking distances in very heavy protective gear.

With the attached rear platform lowered, three additional officers can be carried to the scene more safely than stacking behind a hand-carried ballistic shield.  Additional uses include explosive breaching, strategic team placement, hostage rescue and delivering hostage negotiation phones, food, and medicines.
