PinPoint undergoes final field testing in Spain.

Guardian Technologies International : 26 November, 2007  (New Product)
Pivotal testing continues into final phase in Spain for Guardian's PinPoint anti-terrorism threat detection system.
Guardian Technologies International has announced a scheduled pivotal final test involving highly-volatile explosives in Madrid sponsored by TEDAX. TEDAX is the elite Spanish government agency, part of the Civil Guard, charged with safeguarding people and property against terrorist activity. High-ranking Spanish government and security officials are expected to attend along with leading security contractors interested in commercialising PinPoint in Spain and throughout the entire European Union.

Guardian recently completed the data collection phase of this initiative and is now returning to Spain with a significantly enhanced PinPoint product that incorporates the ability to accurately detect a range of explosive compounds that have been identified by security agencies in Spain and the rest of the European Union as among the gravest threats.

The next phase of the TEDAX initiative, scheduled for November 28-29, 2007, represents the latest progress in a series of successful performance enhancements of Guardian's unique and proprietary PinPoint technology. The final test also follows an operational concept test and demonstration that took place earlier this year at Barajas International Airport in Madrid.

Last month, Guardian collected thousands of x-ray images that were used to develop unique signatures for each new explosive compound by processing the images through PinPoint's proprietary supervised artificial intelligence platform. These new signatures were used to update PinPoint's threat assessment database.

"We are very pleased to announce that in a relatively short period of time we have upgraded PinPoint to detect the specific threats facing Spain and other European nations," said Bill Donovan, President and Chief Operating Officer of Guardian Technologies International. "We believe this adaptability is perhaps one of the most impressive aspects of our proprietary technology. We are honored to be invited by TEDAX to showcase PinPoint's next generation capabilities to some of the highest ranking government officials in Spain."

Guardian's PinPoint product line uses breakthrough technology designed to significantly improve the performance of x-ray screening devices by providing security personnel vastly improved abilities to identify explosives, drugs and other threats.

Guardian recently signed a milestone agreement with International Threat Detection Systems (ITDS), an industry-leading distributor and integrator of a comprehensive line of x-ray security and metal detection solutions. ITDS offers an extensive distribution network that includes the Prosegur Group, a high-profile security firm that employs three out of five security employees in Spanish airports.

This final test will also be used as the platform to introduce PinPoint's capabilities throughout the remainder of Europe. Passenger traffic in Spain's 47 airports is growing at nearly 10% per year and may reach the 200 million passenger mark within a year. Portugal's passenger traffic growth rate at their 12 main airports is similar to Spain's and has precipitated the need for substantial airport expansion to meet the demand.

Initially designed for the concerns of aviation security, PinPoint will improve screener efficiency, reduce unnecessary traveler delays, and provide airport ownership with a return on their technology investment. Additionally, the software can be used for building security and train stations that are rapidly becoming a major security concern around the world.

Guardian's PinPoint platform and product suite is protected by a robust patent portfolio. The Company is developing new technologies and plans to acquire complimentary technologies to accelerate their high-growth business model.
