When law enforcement officers are called to any emergency situation - they are prepared for the worst case scenario. Whether dealing with a hostage rescue, barricaded suspects, riot scene, or natural disaster having the right defensive equipment is critical. The Rook is custom designed with mission specific attachments that increase job safety, while also improving the ease and speed of changing attachments.
The Armored Deployment Platform (ADP) allows officers to approach a structure without covering open exposed ground on foot. Officers easily gain entry to the second story of a house or building without a ladder, allowing them to search the house from the top down without using stairways to work their way up. The ADP is also used to deploy snipers to a rooftop.
The Rook's integrated video system gives visibility into areas that small robotic video cameras cannot access.
