Project Snapshot: Integrated Security Systems for National Memorials and Monuments

In honor of our 20th anniversary, Futron will be providing project snapshots throughout 2014 to recap just a few of the notable projects we’ve performed on behalf of our Defense and Civilian customers. Our first project snapshot highlights work performed for the National Park Service (NPS) in response to the tragic attacks on our nation on September 11, 2001. The NPS asked Futron to design, install and maintain integrated CCTV security systems for all memorials and monuments located in Washington, D.C., including the White House Visitor Center, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial, to enhance public and national security and safety. Futron was able to complete this project by the designated deadline of the weekend of July 4th, 2002.

Futron was also asked by the NPS to design and deploy an incident monitoring system after an individual drove dangerously close to the reflection pool on the Washington, D.C. Mall and threatened a bomb explosion. Futron’s expert engineers and technicians had a system set up and functional within four hours of the incident. In addition to the installation of this system, Futron also performed a vulnerability assessment for the NPS. Based on this assessment, the NPS granted Futron the opportunity to design and build a security camera system on the Washington Monument.

This experience proves that Futron is adept at going above and beyond for any client, particularly when safety and security are at risk.
