Detroit, Michigan, June 4, 2024 Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX), a global leader in AI-driven security and productivity solutions for enterprise clients along with wholly owned subsidiary Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), today announced a strategic investment in Nightingale Security Inc., a leader in autonomous aerial (drone) security systems. This investment follows a partnership announced in May, enhancing the commitment to delivering cutting-edge security solutions.

The Company noted that the undisclosed financial investment was via a convertible note. A convertible note is a type of short-term debt that converts into equity, typically in conjunction with a future financing round. This investment structure provides AITX with the flexibility to support Nightingale Security’s growth while potentially benefiting from future equity appreciation. By using a convertible note, AITX is able to make a strategic investment without immediately diluting its equity stake, aligning the interests of both companies and allowing for shared growth and success in the evolving security market.

Steve Reinharz, CEO/CTO of AITX and RAD, stated, “Our investment in Nightingale Security enhances our technological capabilities and market reach. Integrating RAD’s ground-based robots with Nightingale’s drones creates a robust security ecosystem for challenging environments.”

Jack Wu, CEO of Nightingale Security, added, “This partnership pushes integrated autonomous devices to deliver autonomous security, providing cost reduction, more capabilities, and unmatched situational awareness via the ability to rapidly respond with the Nightingale autonomous drone.”

The integration of RAD’s RIO with Nightingale’s drones will enable seamless detection, surveillance, and response, offering low-cost, efficient security for large, remote areas. This combined solution will provide clients with the ability to “Detect, Respond, and Verify.”

Mark Folmer, CPP, PSP, FSyI, President of RAD, commented, “We are excited to deepen our collaboration with Nightingale. This partnership offers our clients an intelligent security solution combining stationary and aerial capabilities, setting new industry standards.”

This strategic investment emphasizes AITX’s proactive approach to leveraging emerging technologies in security. The companies aim to advance AI-powered security solutions and reinforce their leadership in the field.

Both companies are committed to a long-term vision, with typically three-year Robotics-as-a-Service (RaaS) contracts underscoring their dedication to providing sustained, innovative security solutions worldwide. The partnership highlights the significant impact and growth potential of autonomous security solutions, aiming to redefine security standards globally.
