FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Gatekeeper Announces New Contract for its Viperfish® High Resolution Recorders for Law Enforcement Applications
Abbotsford, BC September 3rd, 2014 – Gatekeeper Systems Inc. (“Gatekeeper” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: GSI) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new contract (the “Contract”) with one of the world’s leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of thermal imaging systems for its Viperfish® high resolution video recorders.
Under the Contract, Gatekeeper’s law enforcement and military application division (through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Deep Development Corp) will provide its Viperfish® solid-state, high resolution video recorders to integrate and record video from night vision sensors in airborne and maritime security applications.
Our customer, whose name has not been made public at press time, is a global leader in infrared cameras, night vision and thermal imaging systems (the “Customer”). The Customer has been supplying thermal imaging and night vision equipment, particularly to law enforcement and military, for over 30 years. Their products play a critical role in government activities in more than 60 countries. Gatekeeper’s Viperfish® solid-state, high resolution video and sensor recorders provide an almost bullet proof platform for recording sensitive information in extreme environments.
Doug Dyment, President and CEO of Gatekeeper stated, “We are very excited that this Customer has selected our Viperfish® recorders. Gatekeeper has a significant amount of industry experience with high-end security and homeland defense applications. Our products are being used by the United States Air Force (“USAF”) for use on the AC130 Gunships to record operations in some of the toughest environments. The selection of Viperfish® recorders for use on the Customer’s product line is the right fit for both Gatekeeper and our Customer, as we continue to expand our product lines into law enforcement and military applications.”
The Viperfish® digital recorders and post mission analysis software, along with the XFORCE HD body-worn cameras, provides law enforcement and military personnel with the tools to record high definition video and integrated metadata, resulting in an accurate account of actual events during interdiction. With approximately 30 million law enforcement and security officers world-wide, management believes this niche market will add to the Company’s growth plans over the next several years.
