Fortem Technologies Wins 2021 “Govies” Government Security Award
The Fortem DroneHunter V.3 wins highest honor for the Unmanned Aerial Solutions (Drones) category
PLEASANT GROVE - April 28, 2021 --
Fortem Technologies, a leader in airspace security and defense for detecting and defeating dangerous drones, announced today that the Fortem DroneHunter® V.3 has won a platinum “Govie”, the highest honor, from the Government Security Awards. The award is presented by Security Today magazine, the only integrated product and technology magazine reaching the entire security market, and securitytoday.com, the preeminent editorial website for the security industry.
Launched in 2009 to recognize outstanding government security products, the Govies received the greatest participation ever this year.
DroneHunter is the ultimate drone interceptor technology, effective day and night with over 4000 captures. Fully autonomous, DroneHunter is equipped with AI-driven TrueView® radar, enabling it to effectively detect, pursue and capture rogue drones. The Fortem DroneHunter safely captures and tows away dangerous drones with no collateral damage. “It is apparent that the COVID-19 pandemic had very little effect upon product development and deployment in the government security sector. We have seen a tremendous response from manufacturers who support the government vertical,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief, Security Today magazine. “We appreciate all the manufacturers who labor diligently to ensure security in the government space, including federal, state, local, and Native American jurisdictions. We’re pleased to honor these winners and thank all those who participated in this amazing process.”
An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries in the 2021 categories and named Platinum and Gold winners using criteria including Features, Innovation, User Friendliness, Interoperability, Quality, Design, Market Opportunity, and Impact in the Security Industry, Technical Advances, and Scalability. Fortem Technologies was the only winner in the category of Unmanned Aerial Solutions (Drones), where they took home the Platinum award.
“We are proud to have Fortem Technologies recognized as a leader in the security industry,” said Timothy Bean, CEO of Fortem Technologies. “Our team has worked hard to develop advanced and highly effective solutions to combat the complex and growing problem of drones operated by criminals and terrorists with bad intent. We’re excited to bring home this award three years running.”
All winners of the 2021 Govie Awards can be found on Security Today’s website, https://securitytoday.com/pages/govies.aspx, and will be highlighted in the upcoming issue of the magazine.
