KWESST Micro Systems (KWE) announced today that it has established the ATAK Centre of Excellence in Ottawa.

The centre will work with customers to integrate their systems into the U.S. battlefield management application known as ATAK (Android Tactical Assault Kit).

ATAK is a geospatial and situational awareness system that provides its users with a drop-down menu of approved operational applications for shared situational awareness.

KWESST announced earlier this month that the United States military was sponsoring the company to integrate several of KWESST’s networked soldier applications into ATAK.

“Since then, we have received many requests from government agencies and defence contractors in Canada and overseas to assist them with integrating their current or new applications into ATAK and providing through-life support,” said Jeff MacLeod, KWESST President and CEO.

The company stated that its ATAK Centre of Excellence is a natural extension of its core business around digitizing applications “at the tactical edge” for shared situational awareness and targeting.

“Apart from the revenue potential, this further positions KWESST as a leader in the digitization of land forces at the tactical level, pushing critical information and high-value applications to the individual soldier on the ground and back up through the chain of command,” said Mr. MacLeod.

KWESST Micro Systems Inc is engaged in the business of developing intelligent tactical systems for military purpose.

The company’s other applications include its TASCS system and its related Integrated Fires Module (IFM) application.

KWESST (KWE) is down 6.25 per cent and is currently trading at C$1.35 per share as of 10:51 am ET.
