NEW YORK, November 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
New technologies are expected to contribute in a major way to the growth of the security and surveillance radar markets. According to a recent research by MarketsandMarkets the security and surveillance radar markets are expected to grow at a CAGR rate of 5.97% and reach $8.61 billion in value by 2020. The global security & surveillance radar market is broken into three major segments: land-based, maritime, and airborne radar. It is also segmented into defense application and civilian application. Patriot One Technologies Inc. (PAT.V), TASER International Inc. (NASDAQ: TASR), Smith & Wesson Holding Corp (NASDAQ: SWHC), FLIR Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: FLIR), Esterline Technologies Corporation (NYSE: ESL).
After continuous threats from inspired terror attacks in Europe and the United States, there has been pressure on the surveillance industry to come up with a solution. The new technologies and innovative projects include a wide variety of advancements in different fields, including Biometrics, Cloud Based Security, Big Data, Cybersecurity, Explosives Trace Detection (ETD), Standoff Explosives & Weapon Detection, Tomographic Explosive Detection Systems and more.
A small company in this large sector, Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: PAT.V) states that along with a research team at McMaster University, a well-respected Canadian center for research, and led by the expert guidance of Dr. Natalia Nikolova (EEE Fellow, CAE Fellow, P.Eng. Professor, Canadian Research Chair in High-Frequency Electromagnetics) have come together in a quest to commercialize a system to detect concealed weapons utilizing novel radar technologies. The company has an innovative radar technology providing first responders and security personnel valuable time in Active Threat scenarios. The technology offers stand-off detection of concealed threats typically employed in public locations. Patriot One's technology is its "cognitive" ability to detect guns and knives as well as to assess threats. The system is trained prior to installation and continues to learn upon deployment, getting better and smarter at detecting hidden weapons with each screening instance. Patriot One is working to move this revolutionary technology ahead as rapidly as possible in order to address the growing global need for effective Active Threat management, including Active Shooter events, in an increasingly threatened world.
Patriot One Technologies Inc. announced yesterday that, it has commenced trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "PAT." Additionally, the Company announces the launch of its new and revolutionary NForce CMR1000 concealed weapons detection system, which employs an innovative, radar technology that autonomously recognizes signature identification patterns of prohibited items such as guns or knives prior to their entry into monitored areas.
Company CEO Martin Cronin states, "Our motto is also our goal: 'We aim to Deter, Detect and Defend against random acts of senseless violence in our schools, offices, shopping centers, transit stops, theatres, nightclubs and anywhere else innocent people work, live and play.'" Mr. Cronin says the Company's technology counters an ongoing threat to public safety. "It's time to make soft targets hard without impacting citizens' rights and freedoms. We believe, as do many others, that NForce promises a practical solution to prevent many violent acts that can lead to loss of life, and we plan to deliver on that promise."
The Company recently held a successful pre-launch industry event during the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in San Diego, which featured former US Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge as keynote speaker. The invitation-only event, which was well-attended by Chiefs of Police and other law enforcement officials, provided the Company with a prime opportunity to garner NForce product interest as well as high-level feedback from leading members of the domestic and international public safety sectors. Inspired by the response, the Company has further accelerated its efforts towards product evaluation trials, documentation and marketing, all of which will ultimately support a commercial sales launch anticipated for the second half of 2017.
Currently, the Company's NForce CMR1000 covert concealed weapons system prototype development program is continuing to lead towards a fully integrated alpha demonstration product. Preparations for a series of upcoming field studies employing real-world threat scenarios will include the participation of several leading Canadian and U.S. commercial and public sector partners, which will help evaluate NForce alpha product performance through Q1 2017.
