Technologies That Protect Innocent By-Standers and First Responders
First Responder Technologies Inc. (CSE:WPN) was founded in 2017 by its Chairman, Kal Malhi, a former RCMP officer, as a platform to commercialize new technologies to assist law enforcement and other first responders in the performance of their duties and to help ensure their safety and the safety of the general public.
In 2018, the company secured a license from the National Institutes of Health in the US to develop a new non-lethal solution for use of force, and in early 2019 the company secured an exclusive, global license from Rutgers University to develop a Wi-Fi-based perimeter security solution to provide first responders with better situational awareness and detection capability to respond to mass shooting and terrorist events.
In 2019, the company hired an execution-oriented team of technology executives with more than 40 years of experience developing early-stage technology companies, in Silicon Valley and around the world, to be based in Vancouver, BC and Silicon Valley, with the objective of bringing the Rutgers technology to market in 2020.
The company is currently completing the development of its first Wi-Fi-based perimeter security demonstration unit, with the key corporate objective of having multiple demonstration units deployed by the summer of 2020.
