TORONTO, June 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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, is pleased to announce plans to develop international Threat Detection Testing at University of North Dakota (UND) main campus in Grand Forks.
The initiative was led by Patriot One and UND campus Chief of Police, Eric Plummer. Chief Plummer traveled to Kelowna, B.C. to tour Patriot One’s new development and testing center, as well as to finalize implementation plans for the UND Threat Detection Testing.
The University of North Dakota is a public research campus that offers 224 fields of study; including: aviation and aerospace at the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences. The university also has several national research institutions, such as the Energy and Environmental Research Center, National Center for Hydrogen Technology, and North Dakota’s only medical school and law school. All of which have the highest level of security needs.
From a safety and security standpoint, UND’s Department of Public Safety, led by Chief Plummer, provides nationally recognized Safety and Emergency Planning, Campus Public Safety Training, and Safe Colleges planning and implementation programs for colleges and university campuses across North America. This makes UND ideal for this international Threat Detection Testing, since the campus offers a variety of facilities to test and train Patriot One’s PATSCAN CMR concealed weapon detection solution and its integration with other security technologies, such as access control, CCTV video, alarm systems and perimeter warning systems.
“It’s exciting to have UND and Chief Eric Plummer on board for this international Threat Detection Testing within a major U.S. university setting,” expressed Martin Cronin, CEO & president of Patriot One. “The ability to bring a variety of facilities in one location to test our PATSCAN CMR, along with other security technologies from around the globe, will speed our progress through Stage 3-Live Real-World Environment Testing and lead us to Stage 4-Commercial Deployment.”
The UND campus is literally a small municipality with its University Village as the social hub centered around the $100 million Ralph Engelstad Arena. The university has numerous educational research and training facilities, an extensive array of student housing, student union and management offices, restaurants, a hospital, a police station, several maintenance facilities, and an active airport. And like any small city, the campus has a number of sports venues and event centers, that attract a growing student body and residents from the region.
“The University, as well as our public safety department, are thrilled to be part of a program that could help global communities achieve realistic threat detection solutions aimed at mitigating tragedies like the one we’ve all seen this past year,” shared Chief Plummer. “In addition to our diverse facilities, the University is ideally located geographically for this international Threat Detection Testing, as it is easily accessible for Canadian and American businesses and their technologies alike.”
UND and Patriot One will begin building the UND Threat Detection Testing this summer and will rollout test locations around the campus for the PATSCAN CMR solution alongside a number of related security technologies.
On Behalf of the Board,
Martin Cronin, President, CEO & Director
