Do you know where some of the most important—and most profitable—technology breakthroughs have come from?
I’ll give you a hint: it’s not Silicon Valley.
Historically, these breakthroughs have come from the Military.
For example, during World War II, actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr created a radio-wave technology to prevent Nazi submarines from jamming allied torpedoes.
Eventually, this technology became the basis for modern Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and mobile phone networks.
And in the 1960s, aiming to create a communication network that could withstand a nuclear war, the U.S. military created something called the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET).
The ARPANET laid the foundation for all Internet-based technologies, from the World Wide Web to e-mail.
The military built these technologies to protect our nation, but engineers and entrepreneurs saw their commercial potential—and went on to make fortunes.
Today, we’ll introduce you to a breakthrough technology company:
Currently, it builds valuable military technology for protecting nations—
But it could turn out to be valuable for your portfolio, too.
The Iron Dome
During the 1990s and early 2000s, Israeli cities were hit with over 12,000 rockets and mortars—many of which were fired into civilian areas.
In response, Israel built a massive missile defense network known as “The Iron Dome.” This is a computerized missile defense system capable of identifying and destroying projectiles from multiple sources simultaneously.
Since its launch in 2011, the Iron Dome is responsible for shooting down over 1,200 missiles and rockets aimed at Israeli targets. According to IDF sources, the Iron Dome has a 90% success rate.
These impressive results are thanks to the sophisticated weapons and software systems built into the Iron Dome. There are three distinct systems that power the network: the radar, the monitoring systems, and the weapons systems.
And one in particular could make for a profitable investment.
For a military technology to become mainstream success, someone needs to identify a non-military use for it.
For example, corporations probably weren’t clamoring for a network that could withstand a nuclear blast—but once someone recognized the power of e-mail, corporate communications were changed forever.
The same holds true for the software that powers the Iron Dome’s monitoring systems.
This software powers an entire command center of Israeli Defense Force personnel. They use the software to rapidly detect potential threats—and then deploy weapons systems as needed.
But as it turns out, this sophisticated monitoring equipment can be leveraged for commercial purposes, too...
For example, power plants and public utilities are using it to monitor their systems.
And the company behind this technology is already reaping the benefits of this expansion...
Impressed with "mPrest"
The name of the company that developed the Iron Dome’s monitoring system is mPrest.
Based in Israel, the company already has $25 million in sales and is profitable.
Now, after nearly a decade of supplying its software to the military, the company is aggressively expanding:
One of its initial expansion markets is power plants and utilities.
Market research firm Statista estimates that this market alone is worth over $30 billion.
But the company doesn’t plan to stop there. mPrest believes it can deploy its core monitoring technology into many other multi-billion dollar markets, including the monitoring of factories and hospitals.
All told, mPrest’s target markets could exceed $250 billion.
And here’s what that could mean for you...
Get in at the Ground Floor
In order to help accelerate its growth, mPrest is accepting capital from new investors right now.
That means you have the chance to get in on the ground floor of a company that’s already generating $25 million in sales, and could grow into the billions.
You can learn more about this opportunity—and meet the management behind the company—at a special webinar being hosted this afternoon by one of mPrest’s investors: OurCrowd.
OurCrowd is one of the high-quality funding platforms we cover here at Crowdability.
Not only are they investing in mPrest, they’re also inviting regular investors like you to invest alongside them.
