American Defense Systems, Inc. (ADSI) recently announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, American Institute for Defense and Tactical Studies, has delivered six ADSI foldable transparent ballistic shields (FTBS) for use in dignitary protection and tactical operations by a foreign government.

“This sale to one of our nation’s important allies is the outcome of new inroads we’ve been making into international sales, led by the director of our American Institute, who has personally helped train foreign government security forces,” said Anthony J. Piscitelli, CEO of ADSI. “In this competitive arena of VIP protection and security, this adoption of our VIP shield technology by a major foreign government further demonstrates that our product line is world class and ready to be deployed anywhere around the globe.”

The large and robust shields were designed to provide security forces with the immediate ability to augment security for VIPs and dignitaries during public events on stages and podiums, in hotel suites, and any other location where a transparent armor solution is required. For ease of use, the shields were designed to be collapsible in order to fit into aircraft and trucks for ease of transport.
