First Homeland Security Secretary to help Patriot One launch concealed weapon detection system
SAN DIEGO Oct. 13, 2016 Patriot One is pleased to welcome Tom Ridge, First Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and former Governor of Pennsylvania as keynote speaker at an invitation-only hosted event to formally introduce its NForce CMR1000 product during the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in San Diego.
The special product launch event will be hosted by Patriot One from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Marriott Marquis - San Diego Marina, located at 333 W Harbor Dr.
Ridge’s speech, which takes place around 6:00 p.m. in the hotel’s San Diego Ballroom B, will focus on the importance of private and public sectors working together to prevent random acts of violence on our citizens.
Afterward, Patriot One CEO Martin Cronin along with the company’s scientific and management team will announce the launch of a new, revolutionary covert weapons detection technology.
“Today’s senseless acts of gun and weapon violence on our global citizens is top of mind, and we all want solutions to protect our family, friends and communities,” Cronin said. “There have been more than 185 shootings at our schools alone since Sandy Hook in 2012. This must stop, and we’re excited to announce a new product that can make us all safer and prevent attacks like these.”
Patriot One will provide details about the advanced development stage of its NForce covert concealed weapons system with over five years of academic research and successful testing complete. The patented Cognitive Microwave Radar (CMR) technology is designed to deter, detect and defend against unlawful use of weapons in private buildings, sports venues, schools, transportation hubs, entertainment facilities, clubs and other public and private venues and facilities.
Early stage trial devices are currently advancing to prototypes slated for pilot use in a number of Canadian and US facilities by year end. Sales orders are anticipated to commence in mid-2017. Patriot One has further entered into agreements with certain law enforcement partners in order to collect weapons signature data for use in the Company’s rapidly growing proprietary NForce weapons detection library.
Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served during the launch event. Patriot One is a proud sponsor of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Annual Conference taking place at the San Diego Convention Center Oct. 15 – 18.
