KWESST (KWE) has appointed Daniel Garcia to lead the expansion of the Critical Incident Management solutions.

Garcia is a former Assistant Chief of Police for the Dallas Police Department and Chief of Police of the Phoenix Police Department.

KWESST’s Critical Incident Management solutions provide first responders with real-time networked situational awareness information that improves safety and incident management.

“KWESST has clearly demonstrated its ability to deliver digital transformation technologies for tactical military systems, leveraging the Team Awareness Kit (“TAK”) ecosystem of products to provide real-time exchange of situational awareness, navigation, imagery, and operational information for soldiers on the ground, and now we are applying these proven digitization solutions to the public safety market,” said Rick Bowes, Vice President of KWESST’s Digitization and Counter-Threat division.

“Our solutions solve critical challenges for law enforcement, fire, emergency response, search and rescue, and natural disaster management, all of whom require networked situational awareness to understand, decide, and act faster and more efficiently in response to a critical incident,” he added.

Globally, the public safety and security market was valued at $435 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $868 billion by 2028.

Daniel V. Garcia commented on the opportunity.

“I am very excited at the potential for KWESST’s digital transformation technologies to provide the kind of integrated situational awareness solution that agencies everywhere need. As the former head of two of America’s largest police forces, I know firsthand the importance of implementing solutions that can improve responder safety and incident management. KWESST’s solutions are the critical missing piece in major incident response.”

KWESST is actively responding to proposal requests from national, regional and local public agencies. “There is clearly significant potential to extend our digital transformation capabilities to the public safety market across the U.S.,” said Rick Bowes.

KWESST commercializes breakthrough next-generation tactical systems for military and security forces and personal defence.

Its current portfolio of unique proprietary offerings includes its unique public safety PARA OPSTM system with application across all segments of the non-lethal market, including law enforcement and personal defence.

KWESST Micro Systems Inc. (KWE) is up 5.71 per cent on the day, trading at C$0.37 per share at 12:50 pm ET.
