In a news release, Patriot One Technologies Inc. (PAT:TSX; PTOTF:OTCQX) announced that it is participating in a program in which it will receive up to CA$4.5 million in investment capital to further build out and test its PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Threat Detection Platform.
Canada's Digital Technology Supercluster COVID-19 Program consists of two stages for co-investment. In the first, Patriot One, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, will receive up to $2.25 million to develop, deploy and test three new PATSCAN components.
One is a screening module that uses thermal cameras to highlight in real time people with an elevated body temperature. The second is one or two modules that detect and highlight whether people are wearing or not wearing masks or face covers in places where they should be and highlight areas in which social distancing is not being practiced. The third is a module that predicts future outbreaks based on multi-location tracking of quantifiable indicators.
These modules must be deployed for four to six months at the locations of at least five Patriot One customers. Already, testing of the temperature, face coverings and social distancing modules is underway as they are up and running in a hospital, business office, sports stadium and law enforcement facility, all in North America.
In the program's second stage, Patriot One will get up to CA$2.25 million over six to eight months to refine its new health safety modules and again deploy them at the sites of its stage one partners.
"Our mission has always been to create safer communities by detecting dangers before they become a threat to our global citizens and communities. We believe our thermal camera solution will greatly help businesses, healthcare, retail, sport, entertainment, and hospitality industries as they re-open the economy," Patriot One CEO Martin Cronin said in the release.
