KWESST Micro Systems Inc (CVE:KWE) announced Tuesday the elevation of its affiliation with SAMSUNG Electronics America Inc to "USA Partner" status.

As a SAMSUNG USA Partner, KWESST said it will be employing the SAMSUNG S20TE tactical smartphone in the production version of its Tactical Awareness and Situational Control System (TASCS) and for its Integrated Fires Module (IFM) for networked targeting on soldiers' weapons.

"SAMSUNG tactical smart devices are the preferred choice of military users around the world," said Jeff MacLeod, KWESST founder and CEO. "Therefore KWESST's new status as a SAMSUNG USA Partner further positions KWESST to advantage in the tactical ecosystem."

The news builds on the company's earlier announcement in March regarding Headquarters Marine Corps Aviation's sponsorship of KWESST to integrate the company's TASCS capability into the ATAK Battlefield Management Application in use with a wide range of military and homeland security users in the US and internationally.

"Incorporation of KWESST's TASCS and IFM applications into ATAK and SAMSUNG devices represent important milestones in the steady recognition and traction our applications are gaining in the military community as enablers of networked defence and security personnel and their operational assets," MacLeod added.

Users of the SAMSUNG S20TE will have access to KWESST's TASCS and IFMs applications at the push of a button for a networked common operating picture of the situation on the ground. And, with KWESST's miniaturized snap-on adaptor containing sensors, software and ballistic algorithms, soldiers will be able to connect these smart SAMSUNG devices to their weapons, networking them into precision "smart munitions" systems for safer engagement and more effective coordinated targeting of adversaries.

The SAMSUNG S20TE device, also known as the Galaxy S20 Tactical Edition, is the latest mission-ready military smartphone built and proven by operators in special operations for rapid information capture, sharing and analysis in diverse operating environments.

In other company news Tuesday, David Luxton, executive chairman of KWESST, joined Arne Gulstene, head of the TMX Group, to celebrate the company's new listing on TSX Venture Exchange and open the market.
