Patriot One Technologies Wins Gold at ASTORS Homeland Security Awards

TORONTO – November 21, 2022 – Patriot One Technologies (TSX: PAT) (OTCQX: PTOTF) (FRA: 0PL) (“Patriot One” or the “Company”) today announced it received two gold awards from American Security Today’s ASTORS 2022 Homeland Security Awards in the categories: Best Pedestrian Entrance Control and Best Metal/Weapons Detection.

American Security Today’s Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards is a U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program that recognizes industry leaders in categories that include physical and border security, cybersecurity, emergency preparedness, as well as federal, state and municipal government agencies in the acknowledgment of their efforts to keep the nation secure.

“The ASTORS Awards recognize the best technology solutions that keep the country safe and secure – which underscores the effectiveness and crucial benefits of Patriot One’s Gateway solution,” said Peter Evans, CEO of Patriot One. “Fast, frictionless security technology is the patron entry screening of the future, and the optimum choice of stadiums, casinos, workplaces and other venues to keep people safe, while allowing them to simultaneously enjoy their experience.”

Patriot One’s Gateway was honored in both the Best Pedestrian Entrance Control and Best Metal/Weapons Detection categories for its highly effective capabilities in ensuring weapons are detected and not brought into high-traffic events and locations. The latest iteration of the Gateway, Patriot One’s SmartGateway, uses artificial intelligence (AI)-powered sensors to detect guns, knives and other weapons without the need to remove personal items. The solution was specifically designed for facilities requiring high attendee throughput, such as arenas and stadiums. The customizability of SmartGateway also makes it a perfect fit to keep weapons out of facilities in a range of industries including warehouses, schools and more.

Evans continued, “Multiple industries are approaching us looking for a solution to keep weapons and prohibited items out of their facilities – and the flexibility of the SmartGateway enables them to achieve this goal. Our system is equally effective getting thousands of people safely into a concert as it is getting thousands of workers through security during a shift change at a large factory.”

The Gateway is currently being used at multiple Oak View Group (OVG) properties through a partnership between OVG and Patriot One, including the Moody Center and Acrisure Arena, as well as Tachi Palace Casino Resort and Kia Georgia Inc.
