Evolv And PatriotOne Compete As NCS4 Says "Transparency Is a Priority"

By Donald Maye, Published Jan 13, 2022, 10:14am EST (Info+)

Competition amongst next-generation metal detector companies is heated as 2 publicly traded companies, Evolv and Patriot One, have been evaluated by the National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4).

While the NCS4 report for Patriot One has been released, the NCS4 report for Evolv is still being produced while Evolv has objected to IPVM about its weaknesses being made public.

In this report, we share feedback from the NCS4 on the evaluations, PatriotOne’s CEO on its philosophy, the NCS4 scrutiny, and why this transparent approach is good for this growing segment.
