Top Defense Companies are Detecting Threats at Major U.S. Sporting Events

December 17, 2019 -

Major sports venues have made big efforts to protect fans by strengthening venue defenses. For example, many have prepared for vehicle-borne, package-borne and person-borne issues, as highlighted by Athletic Business with things such as metal detectors, bag searches, and trained canines, for example. Oriole Park at Camden Yards and M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland are even testing new technology that uses radar imaging and artificial intelligence to detect concealed weapons among attendees. “We believe this emerging threat detection technology could be the future of keeping fans safe at events by detecting weapons in real-time without disrupting pedestrian flow,” said Vernon J. Conaway Jr., the Maryland Stadium Authority’s vice president for public safety and security, as quoted by The Baltimore Sun. As demand for threat detection grows, it’s opening a wide range of opportunity for companies including Patriot One Technologies Inc. (TSX:PAT)(OTCQX:PTOTF), Axon Enterprise Inc. (NASDAQ:AAXN), ShotSpotter Inc. (NASDAQ:SSTI), Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO), and Johnson Controls International PLC (NYSE:JCI).

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.”

The PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Covert Threat Detection 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. Specific location of the Platform’s deployment will not be disclosed. “Customer safety is our number one priority at Banc of California Stadium,” said LAFC Vice President of Information Technology Christian Lau. “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.” Following the initial pilot deployment of the PATSCAN Platform with LAFC at an undisclosed location within Banc of California Stadium, Patriot One will work with the team and stadium management to broaden deployment throughout the complex.
