KWESST Micro Systems Inc. (TSXV: KWE) ("KWESST" or "the Company") announced today that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") has issued a Notice of Allowance for a second patent covering KWESST's "Phantom" electronic decoy system.

KWESST previously announced on October 5th, 2020 the allowance of a first patent covering fifteen claims for a programmable multi-waveform radiofrequency generator capable of broadcasting and emulating all relevant military waveforms to create electronic battlefield decoys that deceive adversaries regarding the location of NATO friendly forces.

The second patent allowance announced today covers eleven additional claims for a programmable multi-waveform radio frequency generator plus associated tactics, techniques and procedures ("TTPs") for deploying the PhantomTM system.

"This second patent allowance with its set of additional claims substantially enlarges the intellectual property portfolio of the PhantomTM electronic decoy technology," said Jeff MacLeod, Founder, President and CEO of KWESST.

PhantomTM is the electronic decoy KWESST is bringing to market in 2021 in response to specific military interest in a next-generation system that is ultra-miniaturized for expedient deployment in theaters of operation by ground personnel or on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles ("UAVs"). Phantom mimics all relevant NATO military electronic signal emissions in order to deceive adversaries attempting to locate them based on those waveforms.

Requirements for such a "phantom" capability are now appearing in NATO solicitations for future land Electronic Warfare (EW) systems, driven by contemporary experience in contested areas where forces have been located and destroyed at scale. One publicly reported example is the 2016 incident where two full Ukrainian mechanized battalions were annihilated by Russian adversaries in three minutes with precision mass fire after locating them based on their electronic signal emissions.

The Company commented that it believes the addressable market for the PhantomTM electronic decoy could be $500 million CAD in the U.S. alone, and potentially the same again for other NATO countries and their allies.
