American Defense Systems Completes Contract for Security Door Upgrades at the New Federal Courthouse in Brooklyn, New York

HICKSVILLE, N.Y. - American Defense Systems, Inc. (ADSI) has just completed a half-million dollar contract for the design and installation of upgraded computer-driven touch-screen security controls for restricted-access doors used by the U.S. Marshals Service at the new federal courthouse in Brooklyn.

The completed work links the controls for the over 200 security doors used by the US Marshals for prisoner movement to the numerous restricted-access points already installed by ADSI in the old courthouse. The work in Brooklyn utilizes the same state-of-the-art standard-setting technology that ADSI designed and installed inside the Whitaker Federal Courthouse in Kansas City, Missouri in 2001. The staff at ADSI possesses over one hundred years of combined hands-on experience in security and correctional work, and they field unrivalled expertise in the design and development of advanced entry control security systems, security monitoring systems, intrusion detection systems, touch screen and video imaging systems, secure facilities and sites, and interfaces and architectures for a wide variety of security requirements, including: communications security, detention security, perimeter security, computer security and airport security.

ADSI is a global leader and innovator in the design, manufacture and installation of transparent and opaque armor, security doors, windows and curtain wall systems, armor and blast-resistant glass capabilities that have been used by the American military overseas to protect against IEDs and vehicle-borne explosive devices.
