- PATSCAN CMR™ technology to detect concealed weapons & ordnance
- Microwave radar technology developed in collaboration with McMaster University
- Non-intrusive system units can be deployed covertly
Patriot One Technologies, Inc. (TSX.V: PAT) (OTCQB: PTOTF) is on the frontline of the fight against terrorists and active shooters, the latter defined by law enforcement agencies as ‘an individual or individuals actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a populated area’. In collaboration with McMaster University of Canada, the company has developed novel technology which detects weapons and other ordnance carried into public spaces and reduces the risk posed by malevolent actors. Unlike present weapons detection systems, the Patriot One units employing this innovative technology can be deployed without the knowledge or awareness of those being scanned. In addition, there is no stop-and-scan or intrusive invasions of privacy. With its new PATSCAN technology, Patriot One is offering airports, train stations, nightclubs, concert venues and other public arenas the capability to deter, detect and defend against terrorists and active shooters.
Patriot One’s preemptive approach to warding off gun and bomb violence employs cutting-edge microwave radar technology linked to machine algorithms. The low-power radar system scans people and property as they pass through the field of the device. This data is relayed continuously to sophisticated algorithms that access a database of ordnance “signatures” and make a determination, in real time, of a possible security threat. By running the scan against the signatures in the database, the system quickly identifies whether someone is carrying a gun, knife, bomb or some other potentially dangerous device or object.
Patriot One’s PATSCAN, developed in collaboration with researchers from McMaster University, is markedly different from traditional weapons detection technology. Current weapons detection systems are highly visible and tend to create the sort of ominous atmosphere one might expect in a prison, perhaps, but not at a teenage pop concert. However, PATSCAN can be deployed covertly behind walls, ceilings and floor panels and is, in effect, invisible to the public. Consequently, it increases the likelihood that an actor with malicious intent will give himself away. The technology, which will certainly prove disruptive to the security industry, is rather less so in operation. It requires no stop-and-scan; no searching of handbags and emptying of pockets; and no body scans that may violate the norms of privacy or decency. In many ways, PATSCAN CMR is clean technology, and its merits are getting a nod from industry experts.
Earlier this year, the company announced the Security Industry Association (SIA) had recognized it as winners of the Anti-Terrorism / Force Protection category in the New Product Showcase (NPS) component of the ISC West industry trade show and conference in Las Vegas, Nevada (http://nnw.fm/2KPFm). SIA NPS judges are highly skilled and experienced in security technology design and application and are required to have a minimum of 10 years experience in the selection, purchase and or installation of products within the category that they are judging. The PATSCAN has, so far, achieved a 94 percent true positive detection, which is far ahead of traditional metal detector rates.
Patriot’s order book is growing, and inquiries from potential clients and distributors continue to pour in. Last month, one such inquiry, from Down Under, blossomed into a new partnership. Patriot One announced it had entered into a reseller agreement with accredited national systems integration experts Aotea Security (NZ) Ltd. of Dunedin, New Zealand (http://nnw.fm/Y1zJT). Aotea Security is the security specialist arm of the Aotea Group of companies, which provides New Zealand’s only truly nationwide solution for electronic security, electrical, fire, and communications services.
Patriot One is now in the process of obtaining certification from Industry Canada and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. for its commercial PATSCAN units. The company hopes to start shipping commercial units in the fall.
