TORONTO, March 28, 2018 — Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX.V:PAT) (OTCQX:PTOTF) (FRANKFURT:0PL) (“Patriot One” or the “Company”), makers of the award-winning PATSCAN CMR™ (Cognitive Microwave Radar) concealed weapons detection system, spent the month of March updating its development center rollout with Canadian, U.S. and U.K reseller partners. In addition, outreach to U.S. Congressional leaders facilitated introductions and information sharing about the Company and its PATSCAN CMR solution. The information sessions were favorably met and will help ensure that current and future safe-school legislation remains open to all forms of detection technologies.
As outlined by Patriot One’s CEO and President Martin Cronin during several recent interviews with CNET and other media outlets, the Company has advanced to Stage-3 active testing and research of the PATSCAN CMR concealed weapons detection solution in real world environments. By the end of April 2018, Patriot One will have five (5) client locations where Company engineers will be able to test and conduct further research on the radar device and software solution. In addition to the recently opened location within the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, the next four (4) development locations are scheduled to include a Southeast U.S high school, a Midwest U.S. university, a business location in the U.K. and a law enforcement establishment in Canada. Each location offers a unique environment to support advanced testing. As confidentiality is critical to the Company’s covert technology testing regime, further details about new locations will be released when deemed appropriate.
Active PATSCAN CMR technology testing has continued to advance employing a staged approach: Stage 1 encompassed years of academic research. Stage 2 combined advances in software development, radar performance studies and equipment form factor enhancements culminating in equipment certifications and advancement to Stage 3. Today our focus on extensive research involves background signal subtraction designed to capture a variety of human body types and environmental background signatures as well as feature extraction testing and research. This involves capturing signatures of a variety of weapons including guns, knives and bombs. We are amassing extraordinary amounts of data from our extensive and ongoing studies in active environments. Ultimately, it is through the concerted application of technology and diligent effort that we will achieve Stage 4, a safe and practical commercial application designed to solve the issue of random acts of public violence.
In related news, this past week saw several key members of Patriot One’s Marketing, Public Policy and Business Development teams visit with members of Congress in Washington D.C. to share information about the Company, and its PATSCAN CMR concealed weapon detection solution. The team outlined and advised on current Stage-3 progress, and also asked Congressional staff members to ensure that existing and prospective “safe-school” legislation remain open to all forms of weapons detection technology.
The U.S. Congressional offices visited included:
- U.S. Representative Stephanie Murphy (D-Florida),
- U.S. Representative Val Demings (D-Florida),
- U.S. Senator and U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Diane Feinstein (D – California),
- U.S. Representative Tom Rooney (R-Florida),
- U.S. Representative Ted Deutsch (D-Florida),
- U.S. Representative Dina Titus (D-Nevada),
- U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida),
- U.S. Senator Dean Heller (R-Nevada),
- U.S. Representative Jackie Rosen (D-Nevada), and

Immediately following an upcoming Congressional recess, the Patriot One team will return to Washington D.C. during the week of April 16thto continue efforts to introduce Patriot One, its PATSCAN CMR solution to additional Congressional staff and secure support for technology agnostic safe-school legislation.
