Executive Chairman To Present at Whistler Capital Conference
Ottawa, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – June 30, 2021) – KWESST Micro Systems Inc. (TSXV: KWE) (OTCQB: KWEMF) (“KWESST” or “the Company”) today announced that it will hold the first ever live demonstration of its Low Energy Cartridge (LEC) system. The demonstration will be held in the Whistler, British Columbia area in the afternoon of July 9th, 2020. In attendance for KWESST will be the Company’s Executive Chairman David Luxton and the C.E.O. Jeff MacLeod.
While not open to the general public, investors who wish to attend are invited to send an email to: [email protected]. Please note that capacity at the demonstration site is very limited. A video of the event is expected to be posted on the Company’s website during the week of July 12th.
The LEC system is the world’s first cartridge-based non-lethal firing system with universal application across four market segments that currently use a variety of dated “non-lethal” or “less-lethal” solutions. These segments are (i) public order (riots and control of dangerous subjects), (ii) military and law enforcement training (realistic force-on-force training), (iii) personal defence (home, car, boat, RV, camping, hiking), and (iv) high-action gaming.
KWESST also announces that David Luxton will be a presenter at the 11th Annual Whistler Capital Conference organized by Capital Event Management which takes place in Whistler between July 9th and 11th. The conference introduces growth-stage companies to active top-level capital finance individuals through a day of scheduled one-on-one meetings and networking activities.

The company’s current portfolio of unique proprietary offerings include: its signature TASCSTM (Tactical Awareness and Situational Control System) for real-time awareness and targeting information from any source (including drones) streamed directly to users’ smart devices and weapons; the autonomous GreyGhostTM soldier-portable micro drone missile system that defends against small hostile drones including swarms using high-speed kinetic impact; a Ground Laser Defence system to counter the emerging threat of weaponized lasers against personnel; and, the PhantomTMelectronic battlefield decoy system to mask the electromagnetic signature of friendly forces with decoy signatures at false locations to deceive and confuse adversaries. All systems can operate stand-alone or integrate seamlessly with OEM products and battlefield management systems including Frontline, Edge, Killswitch and all versions of the ATAK Tactical Awareness. KWESST also has developmental “smart ordnance” projects including its “Shot Counter” system, which records the number and type of rounds fired, for optimized firearms maintenance and performance, and a unique non-lethal Low Energy Cartridge (LEC) system with application across all segments of the non-lethal market.
