Patriot One Technologies Inc., developer of the PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Threat Detection Platform, Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) and Banc of California Stadium have announced an innovative expansion of their partnership to enhance security and arena safety at Banc of California Stadium.
Together, Patriot One, LAFC and Banc of California Stadium will form “The Stadium & Event Safety Strategic Alliance,” which will utilise ground breaking security technology to turn Banc of California Stadium into a global showcase venue to advance the vision of safety and security for public gathering spaces.
“The objective of ‘The Stadium & Event Safety Strategic Alliance’ is to establish a consortium of professional sports and stadium security professionals to evaluate and pilot new physical security technologies, including those focused on health and safety due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic and shutdown,” explained Phil Lancaster, SVP of Business Development & Government Relations. “The Group will also invite thought leaders within the Event and Professional Sports safety and security space to participate and discuss ways in which these new innovations can help shape the future of large-scale events, while mitigating acts of terrorism, active shooters and viral and contagious threats.
By implementing Patriot One’s PATSCAN Platform, LAFC and Banc of California Stadium will continue to be an industry leader in event safety and the Alliance will work with other professional sports organisations and stadiums around the world to share information on safety and security strategies.
“We’re excited to participate in the creation of this new strategic Alliance,” said Christian Lau, Chief Technology Officer for LAFC and Banc of California Stadium. “Our venue in the heart of Los Angeles will become the centre for new and innovative physical and health threat identification and detection technologies and we are looking forward to facilitating direct collaboration with other venues and teams around the world.”
Patriot One will implement its PATSCAN Multi-Sensor Threat Detection Platform modules at Banc of California Stadium beginning in June 2020. In addition, Patriot One will deploy its newest health and safety threat identification and detection modules – PATSCAN VRS-T Thermal Elevated Body Temperature and PATSCAN VRS-HS Facial Mask Detection modules – during this same period.
