Patriot One Provides PATSCAN Platform Update
Patriot One Technologies Inc. offers the latest update on its PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Threat Detection Platform.
In May 2020, Patriot One’s Product Development Team responded to the Covid19 Pandemic as part of the Canadian Digital Technology Supercluster Covid19 Program. The Company secured up to $4.5 million (CAD) in co-investment funding under a two-stage program that includes development and deployment of (i) a thermal screening module that highlights persons presenting with elevated temperatures in real-time, using commodity-priced thermal cameras, (ii) additional computer modules that detect the presence or non-presence of medical and non-medical masks and face coverings, and the ability to highlight persons and problem areas where social distance requirements are not being maintained, and (iii) cross-location temperature monitoring to help the prediction of future outbreaks based on the overall trending and the combination of quantifiable indicators.
Stage One comprises up to $2.25 million in investment to demonstrate the development of the modules over a four to six-month timeframe with on-site deployments with five or more co-development customers. In Stage Two, Patriot One will receive a second investment advance of up to $2.25 million over a six to eight-month timeframe to refine the Health & Safety Modules and redeploy with Stage One partners and customer(s).
Patriot One’ s new Health & Safety modules are additional video object recognition solutions that are integrated into the PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Threat Detection Platform, which also includes weapon detection, disturbance and fight detection modules. The Health & Safety Modules use standard medium resolution thermal cameras, powered with the PATSCAN AI software to identify and analyze instances of elevated body temperature. Any anomalous detection outside a nominal body temperature range will result in an immediate alert, which will be instantly transmitted to onsite security for further action.
In addition, Patriot One’s Xtract.ai division, in collaboration with Amazon Web Services, Vancouver General Hospital, University of British Columbia (“UBC”), and SapienML, helped radiologists identify the increased risk of the COVID19 virus. This project was led by Dr. Savvas Nicolaou and Dr. William Parker and supported by the UBC Community Health and Wellbeing Cloud Innovation Center (UBC-CIC) which has a mission to solve real-world challenges that materially benefit British Columbia and the world. Data captured from CT and X-ray scans from around the world, are being reviewed and annotated by 4 radiologists, who are labelling each image to segment them into three classes: background, normal lung, and Ground Glass Opacity (“GGO”). The percentage of lung volume affected by GGO is a leading indicator for COVID-19, and the development of an automated approach to assess this can greatly assist medical practitioners to quickly diagnose early onset of the virus.

Beyond the PATSCAN VRS modules highlighted above, Patriot One’s product and engineering teams have been hard at work on the development of the PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Gateway, which combines multiple sensors with select proprietary detection technologies into one gateway system. As shared previously, by combining multiple sensors with the PATSCAN Artificial Intelligence neural network system (developed by the XTRACT.ai team), the Gateway’s overall performance level is dramatically enhanced and shows improved detection of personal concealed weapons.. The Patriot One product and engineering teams have been working side-by-side on the development and testing of the integrated Gateway solution. The result is a leading-edge, touchless detection technology that will save lives and modern society’s way of life. The PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Gateway will help protect on-site security, staff and visitors against weapons and other physical threats at building and venue entrances, as well as help identify potential viral threats with the addition of the thermal video recognition module. The PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Gateway (MSG 1.0) for Fastlane threat detection is planned for release to the North American market in August 2020 with several Gateway trial installations starting as early July 2020.
