TORONTO — Weapons detection developer Patriot One Technologies Inc. has announced a partnership with Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC), part of Major League Soccer (MLS), to pilot its PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Covert Threat Detection Platform at Banc of California Stadium.
Martin Cronin, Patriot One CEO and president, said in a prepared statement, “In the New Year, our installation team will begin work with the Los Angeles Football Club and Banc of California Stadium on this important game safety initiative. MLS fans will enjoy an added layer of security while attending their favorite team’s home games in Southern California. Our vision is to not only to create a world safe from acts of violence, but also to help save a way of life people have come to expect in their normal everyday lives, and that includes participating in professional sports and entertainment activities with their fellow fans.”
Patriot One says the PATSCAN platform will ship in January 2020 to the security team at Los Angeles Football Club, where they will be joined by Banc of California Stadium security and Patriot One implementation engineers to begin the integration and pilot deployment project.
The PATSCAN platform currently includes four threat detection technologies, including the PATSCAN CMR microwave radar sensor, the PATSCAN VRS video threat recognition software, the PATSCAN STS multi-chemical threat detection sensor and the PATSCAN TMS magnetic signature sensor.
“Customer safety is our number one priority at Banc of California Stadium,” said LAFC vice-president of Information Technology Christian Lau, also in a statement. “We are excited to work with Patriot One to give customers an extra layer of security while attending events at our world-class venue in the heart of Los Angeles.”
