VANCOUVER, B.C. – October 27, 2016 – Mission Ready Services Inc. (“Mission Ready” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: MRS) is pleased to announce that its subsidiary Protect The Force Inc. is the winner of the US DoD’s Defense to Response (D2R) Technology Program. D2R is the Domestic Preparedness Support Initiative’s (DPSI) Technology Transition Program that identifies three technologies, annually, and provides the full services of Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service’s Product Development Center (TEEX PDC) to commercialize these technologies to enhance public safety and homeland security.
Protect the Force traveled as one of 11 Finalists to College Station, Texas to participate in the Defense to Response Technology Showcase. After two rounds of judging, Protect the Force presented their Flex9Armor™ technology to a final panel of judges and was selected to receive $110,000 worth of services from TEEX PDC.
Flex9Armor™, first developed and adopted by the U.S. Military, is comprised of a family of protective garments that provide stringent levels of ballistic protection and are simultaneously lightweight and flexible. 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.
Last year alone, Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (“TEEX”) served more than 168,000 people from every U.S. state and territory and 82 countries worldwide. TEEX is a leader in the delivery of emergency response, homeland security and workforce training and exercises, technical assistance, and economic development. The Product Development Center at TEEX utilizes these resources and networks to test, develop and launch products using the proven Think, Build, Sell method. Through the D2R Program, PDC will provide Protect the Force with market intelligence, product testing and a TEEX TESTED® report, business and responder mentors, and access to investors.
The Department of Defense (DoD) Domestic Preparedness Support Initiative (DPSI), in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Global Security, coordinates DoD efforts to identify, evaluate, deploy and transfer technology, items and equipment to Federal, state and local first responders. The Defense to Response Technology Program is sponsored and supported by DPSI.
“We are extremely honored to have been chosen for this program and proud of a product that we believe will make a difference to the first responder community here at home and around the world” states Francisco Martinez, Chief Technology Officer, MRS.
Nampa, Idaho – October 27, 2016- NEMO Arms, creators of the first viable semi-automatic .300 Win Mag, AR patterned rifle, has relocated to Nampa, Idaho. The move comes in an effort to expand operations and manufacturing to better serve the needs of customers in this expanding market.
NEMO Arms made firearms history in 2013 with the release of the NEMO Arms Omen. The Omen was the first successful design of an AR patterned rifle to reliably and accurately shoot the powerful .300 Win Mag cartridge. Since then an entire Omen line has developed and grown to amazing popularity.
“NEMO is at a pivotal point in its development,” according to CEO Kirk Leopold, “and it’s imperative that we respond swiftly and decisively to demands and opportunities within the firearms market.”
No strangers to technological advancements and industry firsts, NEMO recently introduced their Executive Order (XO), chambered in .308, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .260 Remington. The XO offers unprecedented features including NEMO’s patented bolt carrier recoil reduction system, and new ambidextrous controls. It’s one of the lightest, most accurate, and soft recoiling .308 platforms available. “Our goal is to provide our customers of all experience levels with an unprecedented shooting experience when operating our rifles.”
NEMO is also focusing its efforts on further refinement of their OMEN line of rifles, to ensure increased long-term reliability, durability, and accuracy and continues unmatched R&D with several new, evolutionary products in the pipeline.

Designed to work on conjunction with RE Factor Tactical’s Essentials and Kill Zone Targets, the Essentials Shooting Guide starts with their Essentials Drill. This 150 round drill works on different aspects of shooting to include: basic marksmanship, drawing from the holster, reloads, target transitions, differing tigger manipulations and a combat focused shooting.
Upon completion of the drill you will diagnose areas that need improvement. The book then offers chapters of different drills that are used in conjunction with their Essentials Targets as well as areas to mark your improvement. RE Factor Tactical strongly recommend you use this book in conjunction with the Essentials Targets as the two items will offer a solid iteration of marksmanship.
