KWESST MICRO SYSTEMS (TSX:V:KWE | OTCQB:KWEMF)

This Exciting Tech Company Supporting Soldiers on the Ground Has Now Listed in the US…

Around the world, military conflict is changing.

Bad actors and enemy combatants are employing increasingly sophisticated and powerful technology to devastating effect.

Right now, organizations such as the US military and NATO are keenly investing in and discovering new and ever-more-effective ways to counter such threats.

Huge advances are being made.

But protecting and making soldiers on the ground more effective remains one of the biggest challenges for militaries worldwide.

As you will undoubtedly understand, providing our soldiers with the equipment and resources they need to better defend themselves —and us— as effectively as possible is critically important.

And this is why the rewards for companies who can help to do so are highly significant.

Indeed, the market for technologies that defend soldiers—known as “soldier systems” —was already valued at US$9.78 billion in 2018.

It is now forecast to grow over 7.65% year-on-year to reach a massive US$14.4 billion by 2023.

But one particular company poised to contribute to this market’s exciting growth is still flying under-the-radar.

That company is KWESST Micro Systems.

You see, thanks to an extremely experienced team at the helm and game-changing technology already being rolled out to major players such as the US military…

KWESST represents a unique opportunity for investors to participate in a growing market of international importance: the soldier of the future.

Transformational Technology That Seems Straight Out of a Game

When you first learn about the exciting new ‘MISST’ technology developed by KWESST, it’s easy to think it sounds like something out of a modern computer game, or even a Hollywood blockbuster. 

But this is very real.

In fact, applying this technology in various defence products and military situations could literally be the difference between life and death for a solider on the ground.

It’s no wonder KWESST recently announced another follow-on order from a key US military customer worth a significant C$1.1million.

MISST, by the way, stands for Micro Integrated Systems and Software Technology.

And the key word here is micro.

You see, at its most basic level, MISST enables KWESST to ultra-miniaturize sophisticated guidance and situational awareness systems found on large military ships, aircraft, and tanks, as well as the weapons systems used by soldiers. This information can then be viewed on the soldiers’ smart devices.

Why is this important?

The flagship KWESST product with MISST as its core is the TASCS system. TASCS stands for Tactical Awareness and Situational Control System.

Once installed onto easily portable weapons systems such as mortars, TASCS IFM allows firearms to be networked and achieve superior speed and precision.

This is key.

It means a solider on the ground can receive and transmit situational awareness information in real-time with a drone in the sky, advanced observers, or a command base elsewhere.

You may have come across the concept of the Internet of Things. This is where you can control your home’s heating from your mobile, even while you’re in the office, for example.

This technology is very much like that. Except it works on a much larger, much more sophisticated, and much more secure military scale.

Where MISST is the brains behind the operation (you can think of it as an intel chip in your computer), TASCS is the hardware and software you actually use to control everything.

Using TASCS can literally be compared to using an app or playing a video game. A soldier can have it on a smart device to send and receive critical operational and situational information, and aim with greater precision at an enemy position.

And they can do it all in real-time.

With TASCS, they can essentially speak to anything from a fellow soldier to a drone surveillance unit in the sky to a weapons system in a completely different location.

This simply wasn’t possible before this technology was introduced. So, you won’t be surprised to learn it’s already being bought up and integrated by major suppliers to the US military.

Indeed, as well as having a ground-breaking edge when it comes to the technology itself, KWESST also has an almost unrivalled amount of military experience.

And as a result, its black book of contacts is second to none.

A New Company That’s Been Around The Block

KWESST MICRO SYSTEMS (TSX:V:KWE | OTCQB:KWEMF)

KWESST was founded by a twenty-year veteran of the Canadian army, Jeff MacLeod 

It might still be a relatively new company in practice, but it’s been developing things behind the scenes for some time.

You see, Mr MacLeod spent twenty years working as a small arms and soldier systems expert at Colt Canada – the chief supplier of small firearms to the nation’s military.

His time here, combined with his own experiences in the army, showed him first-hand how combat was changing…

He understood instinctively the need for soldiers to be able to access more advanced technology.

Leaving Colt, he formed a team of experts who shared his belief in the changing landscape of military conflict. And, with their 150 years of combined military technology experience, he founded KWESST.

This experience is one reason why KWESST is not in the business of developing experimental technologies that do not have an application yet like many of its competitors are…

It is developing technology that is needed now.

Across its portfolio, it is working alongside powerful, opinion-forming military forces and suppliers to solve urgent and very real problems at the front of their minds.

This ready-made demand is another reason why KWESST poses such an attractive opportunity for investors…

A Relationship with OEMs is Key to Success

In case you’ve not come across the acronym before, an OEM is an original equipment manufacturer.

These are the companies—often very large ones—that supply militaries worldwide with weapons and equipment.

Now, to be successful in the solider systems market, you first need the technology to compete.

KWESST has this.

But the truth is, you also need to have strong relationships with the OEMs.

The good news?

KWESST has this too.

It has already got very good working relationships and what are known as ‘teaming agreements’ with OEMs like AeroVironment (NASDAQ: AVAV) and ManTech International (NASDAQ: MANT). Plus, its management team have all worked with other giants in the industry throughout their long and successful careers.

It’s not only on the supply side where KWESST has great relationships with OEMs, either.

Recently, the company has been working with manufacturer Samsung to integrate its game-changing TASCS system into devices supplied to militaries worldwide.

There’s no wonder KWESST has an estimated sales opportunity pipeline of over US$93 million, which it is working diligently to convert into revenues.

The bottom line is, support for soldiers on the ground is needed right now… 

And KWESST is providing it.

That’s what makes this investment story so exciting.

And it is why news about new deals is breaking all the time.

As a smart investor, you’ll already recognize the importance of the ground-breaking technology that underpins the work KWESST is doing…

You’ll recognize in the experience of Jeff MacLeod and the rest of the ultra-skilled management team, a group of people that know exactly how to take things to the next level…

And you’ll surely recognize in its small valuation compared to its peers so far that this is a rare opportunity for you to get on board on the ground floor.
