The Armored Group, a worldwide provider of armoured vehicles, and TerraHawk, the developer of rapid mobile surveillance tower systems, have joined forces.
TerraHawk will be rebranded as TerraHawk built by TAG Specialty Vehicles. The company will offer SWAT teams, border patrol teams, private security teams and others in high-risk situations armored and unarmored vehicles outfitted with protective elevated surveillance towers. These towers provide viewing from high vantage points giving responders better sight lines which may be critical to positive resolutions.
The TerraHawk mobile surveillance tower enables a single law enforcement officer to operate the observation capsule which may be raised up to 25-feet and offering 360 visibility, enabling law enforcement to observe a situation that would otherwise be blocked from sight. The system allows it to be rapidly and effectively deployed to different areas, thereby disrupting the ability of criminal elements to entrench in new locations.
The tower is fitted with long range, HD, thermal or infrared cameras that provide real-time surveillance “enabling officers to immediately respond and react to criminal activity, as well as provide video footage to aid in immediate witness testimony.”
For over 25 years The Armored Group has been designing and manufacturing both armoured and unarmoured vehicles that protect first responders, military and others that need the highest level of protection in highly dangerous situations.
“Together TAG and TerraHawk provides next-level protection while gaining access to criminal activity from an elevated surveillance capsule,” said Robert Pazderka, president and founder of The Armored Group.
