"Mr. Kane is a highly experienced defense industry leader who has worked extensively with military and government customers in the U.S and more than 50 countries worldwide.

Prior to the merger of L3 Technologies and Harris Corporation, Kane led international business development for L3 Technologies’ Communications and Networked Systems segment, after leading product management at the L3 Technologies’ Broadband Communications sector for several years.  
"Because of his wealth of experience and expansive network within the defense industry, Mr. Kane will be a key strategic addition to Coda’s current management team. Coda’s Board of Directors consider this a pivotal appointment for the Company," Coda Octpus said.

"In making this appointment, we have now split the role of our Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Divisional CEO of Coda Octopus Colmek, Inc.
