Nowhere seems safe anymore in a world filled with evildoers, the mentally deranged, radical religious extremists, or anyone with criminal intent. One of the latest acts of heinous depredation killed 22 and injured 166 in a suicide bombing at Manchester Arena — kids, mostly young girls, out for a night of revelry at an Ariana Grande concert. Lives destroyed and dreams demolished in split seconds of stark terror. Civilized society and grieving families worldwide beg for answers and protection from the insanity.
Public places, venues and events are nearly impossible to secure. So called soft targets have become targets of choice. By nature, they’re much harder to monitor and screen — thus easier to attack. Wherever crowds of people gather, stand in line or collectively commute, they become attractive targets. It isn’t the size of the bomb that matters most, it’s where it’s detonated.
Conventional screening systems just identify the presence of metal objects, not what those objects may be. It could be a belt buckle, keys or phone, and monitoring subways, schools and stadiums becomes nearly impossible. Current screening systems are inadequate, since they just don’t offer precise enough information to be effective and require compliance on the part of the target subject.
Patriot One Technologies, Inc. (TSX.V: PAT) (OTCQB: PTOTF) has a solution. Patriot One has an exclusively licensed system to detect concealed weapons utilizing novel radar technologies. This first of its kind concealed weapons detection system is designed to detect weapons being carried on people in public places using radar technology called PATSCAN CMR™, which Patriot One has licensed from McMaster University.
Patriot One’s patent-pending system enables stand-off detection, even on moving targets, with the ability to learn, analyze and identify new threats upon deployment. The system actually gets better and smarter at detecting hidden weapons with each screening instance. The technology is able identify passersby carrying a knife, gun or bomb by analyzing metal content and relating it to a database of known weapon signatures.
Patriot One’s PATSCAN CMR™ system is small enough for unobtrusive door, hall or entryway installation with no privacy concerns since no target images are generated. The system doesn’t require line-of-sight, works on moving crowds and is the first cost-effective solution for active shooter prevention on the market. Early warning is the key to effective deployment of timely countermeasures, and widespread use of Patriot One’s pioneering detection technology could be the sought-after deterrent desperately needed to reduce the horrors inflicted on far too many around the world today.
