Top Defense Companies Racing to Put an End to Deadly Mass Shootings in the U.S.
Palm Beach, FL – September 9, 2019 – At the moment, the total number of deadly mass shootings in the U.S. in 2019 comes to an average of one every 13 days, says ABC News. “We are now at almost every two weeks, an active shooter in this country,” Christopher Combs, special agent in charge of the FBI field office in San Antonio, Texas, said during a news conference on Sunday in Odessa, Texas, the scene of one of the latest mass shootings in the nation. Unfortunately, law enforcement has little to no time to prepare or protect citizens ahead of these incidents often because of cost issues, and the availability of effective technology. However, there are companies that are quickly moving to improve enforcement possibilities, saving lives in the process. In fact, some of the top companies include Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX:PAT)(OTCQX:PTOTF), Axon Enterprise Inc. (NASDAQ:AAXN), ShotSpotter Inc. (NASDAQ:SSTI), Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Johnson Controls International PLC (NYSE:JCI).
Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX:PAT)(OTCQX:PTOTF) BREAKING NEWS: Patriot One Technologies Inc., developer of the PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Covert Weapon Detection Platform just announced the acquisition of XTRACT Technologies Inc. and all its related interests, assets, and intellectual property. The Transaction follows demonstrated success of an ongoing collaborative project between the two firms that was announced in late July 2019. The XTRACT acquisition is part of an ongoing strategic initiative by the Company to bring together leading-edge technologies and services that will enhance the power of its PATSCAN Platform, which offers a layered, multi-sensor approach to concealed threat and disturbance detection. “Just over a month ago, we announced a development project with XTRACT, and during this period we’ve already seen great progress in significant opportunities for enhanced detection accuracy” said Martin Cronin, Patriot One’s CEO and President. “With new sales opportunities arising every day for a covertly deployed, multi-sensor security solution, integrating XTRACT more deeply into our development and day-to-day operations made perfect sense. We are thrilled to have this highly talented group join our ranks; as they share our vision for creating a world safer from acts of mass violence.” The XTRACT team will bring additional world-class expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning to the Patriot One staff. XTRACT’s neural network architecture and data fusion techniques are robust, efficient and require less memory than comparable standards. With several strategic PATSCAN deployment initiatives in progress, including with Johnson Controls International and Bleutech Park-Las Vegas announced over the last month, the Company sees this move as both necessary and a key differentiator for its future platform development.
