Deployments to commence at covert urban locations in Canada
TORONTO, ON–(Sep 6, 2017) – Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE: PAT) (OTCQB: PTOTF) (FRANKFURT: 0PL) (“Patriot One” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that its award-winning PATSCAN CMR™ (Cognitive Microwave Radar) concealed weapons detection system has received Industry Canada (IC) certification for commercial use in Canada. Initial deployments will be undertaken in collaboration with law enforcement and government agency personnel at several strategic locations.
Company CEO Martin Cronin said, “We are gratified that a major regional police force has stepped forward to offer locations and personnel to assist our efforts in optimizing best practices for installation and operation. We are also working with an important enforcement arm of the Canadian government that has shown a keen interest in engaging a PATSCAN CMR deployment on-premise.”
Due to the operational and sensitive nature of their activities, the law enforcement organization names and installation locations are withheld under non-disclosure agreements. The planned deployment of the PATSCAN CMR by these organizations is currently for internal, non-public use, and will focus on physical installation processes, fine tuning weapons profiles and ongoing software validation studies.
“We are very thankful to have the co-operation, time and effort of the officers and related civilian personnel, and their support for our quest to guard the public from random acts of violence,” said Mr. Cronin.
Patriot One Technologies CTO Dinesh Kandanchatha added, “The receipt of our Industry Canada approvals is a validation of our engineering and manufacturing processes for regulated environments which mirrors our efforts in the USA. We have worked hard to build our certification expertise and anticipate FCC authorization shortly. Today we are excited to get our equipment into customers hands to further prove the system’s efficacy in typical day-to-day situations at client locations. We are also excited by the opportunity to work with established software and hardware vendors to create a robust integrated security solution.”
Patriot One is in the enviable position of having secured sales commitments for more units than it had planned for 2017. The Company is now finalizing sub-manufacturing agreements to increase its 2018 production capability in order to meet growing demand.
In an unrelated notification as part of its continuous disclosure obligations as a reporting issuer, the Company granted 125,000 stock options at an exercise price of $0.65 per share to an officer of the Company. Details of all corporate filings are available at sedar.com.
