Hawkeye’s smart masks will enable better decision support for first responders and others monitoring the COVID-19 crisis
LOS ANGELES – (February 28, 2020) – Hawkeye Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: HWKE) has entered into an LOI with Arizona Asian Pacific Trade and Consulting, a major protective mask company in Taiwan, to enable the rapid production of a customized smart mask to aid in the response to the coronavirus outbreak.
The smart mask will integrate with Hawkeye’s jointly developed in-depth camera, known as the Hawkeye [N-DEPTH] Body Camera, to bolster bio-surveillance by first responders and others monitoring and managing the global COVID-19 crisis.
To help generate better information and in turn, more effective decision support during pandemics, bio-terrorist attacks and other potential bio outbreaks, Hawkeye is working to add smart functionality to current best-in-breed masks (N95 or better). The advanced technology will work with existing masks as well, but the thought is that close integration with the manufacturer may bring more rapid innovation to the mask, said Corby Marshall, CEO of Hawkeye.
“The present COVID-19 situation throughout the world is obviously fluid and there are a lot of unknowns,” Marshall said. “We believe the application of this technology now with current best practices can help improve the data surrounding the crisis.”
He said the smart mask provides four key elements:
1. Protection: The first line of defense for the wearer be it a consumer or first responder is protection from an airborne threat
2. AI (artificial intelligence): The mask will be able to sense elevated temperature and
presence of airborne pathogens.
3. Platform: LIVE stream and hybrid cloud storage and sync platform integrates back to a broader bio-surveillance deployment thereby creating a better understanding of what is happening and how extensive it is for government, military and first responders.
4. Mesh: A portable connected network, creating a highly versatile ad hoc system, which enables users to create Wi-Fi and or cellular connection on the fly in areas which do not support service.

The Hawkeye [IN-DEPTH] Body Camera is not just a camera but also a platform that allows for interchangeable multi-camera sensors and optics, providing multi-field of view and specialty sensors such as infrared, thermal imaging, snake tube, pinhole, and camera sensor upgrade path. In addition, it includes an evidence management platform that preserves the chain of custody and flexible storage options that allow for the storage of video evidence on premise in the cloud, or both.
