KWESST To Feature “Ready now” Rapid, Agile Tactical Digitization at CANSEC 2023, May 31-June 1, Ottawa, Canada to More Than Thirty Visiting Countries

Integration and exploitation of digital information at the tactical edge including

• Team Awareness Kit (TAK) integration

• Tactical Digital Fires System (TDFS)

• Command and Control On The Move (C2OTM)

• Next-generation Battlefield Laser Detection System (BLDS)

• Portable multi-function Electro-Magnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) device

Ottawa, Ontario–(May 29, 2023) – KWESST Micro Systems Inc. (TSXV: KWE) (TSXV: KWE.WT.U) (NASDAQ: KWE) (NASDAQ: KWESW) (“KWESST” or “the Company”) today announced that at CANSEC 2023, May 31stand June 1st, Ottawa, it will be featuring its capability to rapidly integrate and exploit digital information for the dismounted and mounted soldier, includingTeam Awareness Kit (TAK) integration,Tactical Digital Fires System (TDFS)andCommand and Control On The Move(C2OTM), all vital aspects of soldier modernization for survivability and effectiveness on the battlefield of today and tomorrow.

“KWESST is a key enabler of rapid digitization at the tactical edge as NATO forces everywhere ready themselves for the modern battlefield,” said David Luxton, Executive Chairman of KWESST. “This entails integration of sensors and soldiers into theTAK(or any) battlefield management system for shared real-time situational awareness among and between partner forces at the level of the dismounted and mounted soldier, including video feeds from drones and other Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) assets.”

Other featured capabilities will be KWESST’s modernTactical Digital Fires System (TDFS)that extends digitization to indirect fire weapons like mortars for rapid deployment and precision fire, with no modification to weapons or ammunition, all integrated into TAK, as KWESST has done for the U.S. Marine Corps.

Modern warfare also requires small, mobile distributed command centres for survivabilityvs.large, fixed headquarters of the kind seen in the Afghanistan conflict. KWESST’sCommand and Control on The Move(C2OTM) software-based solution can quickly integrate disparate third-party communications equipment into a common system on the fly, as recently demonstrated to the Canadian Armed Forces. KWESST has various initiatives like this in play now with NATO nations.

Survivability on the modern battlefield also requires Electronic Warfare PhantomTM(EW)at the tactical edge. KWESST’s “Phantom”TM Electro-Magnetic Spectrum Operations (EMSO) device provides multi-function capability as a portable tactical EMSO device a portable electronic decoy, spectrum analyser, jammer, and EW trainer.

This kind of digitization capability also bridges KWESST’s counter-threat systems like its advancedBattlefield Laser Detection System(BLDS) to counter the growing threat of weaponized lasers and laser designators against ground personnel. BLDS detects, identifies, and locates all variants of lasers in the battlefield for mounted or dismounted forces. KWESST is currently delivering this system to an overseas NATO customer and is in discussions with another major NATO country to integrate BLDS into an electro-optical armored vehicle package for near-term deployment.

These are capabilities available from KWESST today for affordable, future-proof rapid land force modernization projects, leveraging KWESST’s agile expert team of systems, software, mechanical and electrical engineers, as well as military veterans. For more information, please visit
