The Company began fabrication and frame assembly for its first 20 scanner units at its Development and Assembly Facility in Tarpon Springs, FL. This is the first step in production of their state of the art Scanner technology. The latest patented circuitry developed by design engineers will be installed in the assembled frames.

The Company’s ‘Offender Alert Passive Scan™’ is a “next generation” walk-through detector scanning unit. This patented and trademarked passive scanning system allows for detecting and identifying concealed threats such as guns, knives, etc. Unlike other scanners the public is more familiar with, Defense Technologies does NOT use X-rays to detect threats. Serious health concerns have been raised over the repeated exposure to X-rays from scanning machines currently in use.

Merrill W. Moses, the CEO of Defense Technologies International Corp., commented, ”We are pleased to announce the completion of a consolidation of our convertible debt as this now clears the way to put our full focus in the areas of production and distribution. As mentioned before, recent mass shooting headlines highlight the need for increased venue security, which has drawn a lot of attention to our technology.”

As of July 29, 2016, the Company had approximately 24,474,056 common shares issued and outstanding, and was traded on the OTCQB exchange under the ticker symbol “DTII”.
