Patriot One Technologies Inc., (CVE:PAT) (OTCMKTS:PTOTF) (FRA:0PL)., the developers and manufacturers of the NForce threat detection system that can discern weapons concealed on the bodies of individuals moving through public places, will begin a pilot program this month in Orlando Florida.
VGroup Concepts, an Orlando paste operator of Adult Entertainment Properties in and around Orlando 62 deploy the NForce system in an effort to create “safe districts”, 4 areas patrons can visit safely knowing that the end for us threat detection system is protecting the security of the areas in which these venues operate.
“The events of June 12th 2016 at the Pulse Nightclub are forever etched in the hearts and minds of the citizens of Orange County United States and the world. It was the deadliest attack by a single shooter in United States history,” said operating manager Jeff Gitto.
Patriot ones threat detection system has been found to identify metallic concealed objects on persons in a laboratory environment with 94.5% accuracy. The system works by measuring the residence microwaves interacting with objects and comparing those signatures to a database of known weapons in real time algorithmically.
The company’s recent recruitment of Tom Ridge who is the founding Secretary of Homeland Security and former governor of the state of Pennsylvania, to the company’s Advisory Board are among the initiatives the company is aggressively undertaking to expedite the deployment of the NForce system.
Patriot One is exhibiting at the Cantech investment conference at the Toronto Convention Center on Wednesday January 18th.
In a recent interview, Dr. Natalia Nikolova, who is the Canada Research Chair in high-frequency electromagnetics at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada, where the technology was developed and continues to be evolved, explains how it works:
“The system actually detects certain features in the radar signal, but these are features that only mathematical algorithms can make sense of. A human being looking at those signals, we can certainly plot the signals as a function of time, but it will look more or less like gibberish to a human being; it is only a computer algorithm that can make sense of those.”
In terms of cost, the company plans to be able to deploy the technology sufficiently inexpensively that it is affordable to a wide range of public venue operators.
“Our long-term goal, is building networks of those, similar to the CCTV networks,” says Dr. Nikolova. “And that is because of the greatest advantage of that system, that it can be miniaturized, and the cost. So bearing in mind that the cost eventually, with mass production, can be brought well below the $1,000 mark, then that will enable municipalities, police departments, to deploy widely. So in a network fashion. So it is very important to start working right away toward the militarization and lowering the cost of the system.”
Patriot One is actively deploying the system in multiple pilot tests in 2017 and expects to begin offering the devices on a commercially available basis at some point during this year.
