VANCOUVER, B.C. – December 13, 2016 – Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: MRS) is pleased to announce the initial order of its No-Contact Riot Shield Covers for use in a military application. Developed and fulfilled through the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Protect The Force Inc. (“PTF”), the modest sub $9,000 order of 12 units represents the official commercial launch of this now market-ready product.
The No-Contact Shield cover, upon activation, releases a strong electrical pulse and an electrical shock sound and spark that deters an assailant. Similar to stun guns, the No-Contact technology is uniquely engineered into a textile composite that can be applied into any type of shield cover, including riot control and correctional facilities types as well as other form factors.
Requirements for this unique patented technology have been established through a product development effort that was initiated in FY2016 and has resulted in further intellectual property claims being filed by the Company. This order further validates No-Contact as a less than lethal technology that supports the unique mission sets of those who protect us.
The manufacturing of the No-Contact Shield covers will be done at the Company’s PTF Manufacturing Inc. facility in Jacksboro, TN and the key electronic components will be manufactured at the Company’s laboratory in Boston, MA.
Francisco Martinez, CTO states: “This small but fundamentally significant order is a milestone for the Company and the commercialization process. We strive to meet the changing demands being placed on military and law enforcement personnel and we believe this product provides them with another tool to help them successfully complete their mission. In addition to the application for this order, we have developed No-Contact Shield Covers for riot control units and for correctional facilities.”
