Former Tucson Police Officer, Influencer, and Media Star to Unveil Company's 'Para Ops' Personal Defense System in Las Vegas

KWESST Micro Systems Inc. (OTCQB: KWEMF) (TSXV: KWE) ("KWESST," or the "Company"), a leader in providing next-generation tactical systems for security forces and personal defense, is pleased to announce that former Tucson police officer and Company spokesperson Brandon Tatum will headline a major product launch for the Company at the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor (SHOT) trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada this month.

Set to take place between January 18-21 at the Venetian Expo Center and Caesar's Forum in Las Vegas, the SHOT Show is billed as the largest annual trade show for the sport shooting, hunting and firearms industries in the United States.

Mr. Tatum, a former SWAT operator and field training officer with the Tucson Police Department, will join KWESST Micro Systems as the Company unveils its new non-lethal Low Energy Cartridge System under the brand name Para Ops. The Company anticipates the new system will transform both the non-lethal personal defense category and the broader law enforcement industry.

As a former law enforcement officer, Mr. Tatum has consulted with and advised KWESST Micro Systems on the unique needs of police forces nationwide, and on the need for an effective non-lethal system to better help law enforcement officers perform their everyday duties.

"The Para Ops system can protect lives and help law enforcement officers throughout the U.S. better serve their communities," said Tatum. "The best non-lethal option that police officers throughout the country currently have is the taser; however, I have personally never used the taser in my many years on the force, simply because tasers are often not effective at getting the job done. Officers certainly need lethal weapons; but it is critical that they also be equipped with effective non-lethal options for use in non-life-threatening situations."

In addition to unveiling the new system, Mr. Tatum will be on hand to sign books and speak with SHOT Show attendees. The KWESST Micro Systems team will be situated at Booth 40022. SHOT Show attendees can visit www.shotshow.org for the latest information on the show, including a detailed agenda and exhibitor map.
