VANCOUVER, B.C. – November 23, 2016 – Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: MRS) is pleased to announce the initial order and shipment of its Flex9Armor™ Tactical Police Shirt to a US County Sheriff Department SWAT unit. Developed and fulfilled through the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Protect The Force Inc. (“PTF”), additional Flex9Armor™ shipments are currently being prepared for a foreign military order while evaluations are underway by a number of European NATO nations.
Flex9Armor™ – jointly developed in cooperation with the U.S. Military – is comprised of a family of protective garments that provide stringent levels of ballistic protection while maintaining exceptionally lightweight and flexible characteristics. Traditional Armor lacks coverage of the arms, chest and neck region of the body, and current additional protection for these areas adds weight and reduces mobility. Flex9Armor™ incorporates a network of NIJ Level II and IIIA body armor panels into a breathable anti-microbial material that is 30% lighter than conventional armor. Integrating all of these features into one combined garment makes Flex9Armor™ a superior option for first responders that is available in standard and fire retardant configurations. Additionally, PTF this week released a variant of the Flex9Armor™, the Flex9Spike™, designed for use by Federal, State and Local correctional facilities.
In a News Release dated October 27, 2016, Mission Ready announced that PTF had won an award through the US DoD’s Defense to Response (D2R) Technology Program for the provision of USD $110,000 in services from Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service’s Product Development Center (TEEX PDC) to commercialize PTF’s Flex9Armor™ to enhance public safety and homeland security. Protect The Force is currently working with over 70 US federal, state and local law enforcement agencies at various stages of the evaluation and purchasing process. In anticipation of a significant demand for the Flex9Armor™, PTF has streamlined its processes through a state-of-the-art online order fulfillment platform and recently launched a manufacturing division based in Jacksboro, Tennessee in order to efficiently and effectively meet client requests.
