Ex TSA aviation security expert joins Guardian Technologies board.

Guardian Technologies International : 17 August, 2007  (Company News)
Recruitment of TSA and FAA experienced aviation security specialist onto Guardian Technologies board of directors reflects the importance of the aviation market for Guardian's product range.
Guardian Technologies International has announced the appointment of world-renowned expert in aviation security technologies, Ronald Polillo, to the Company's distinguished Board of Directors. Mr Polillo's appointment further validates Guardian's ongoing commitment to accelerate government approval of its next generation threat detection technology.

Mr Polillo is a recognized expert in Aviation Security Technologies with 33 years of government service and industry experience in progressively senior positions. Mr Polillo led the FAA Security Equipment and Integrated Product Team to plan, acquire and deploy Explosive Detection Systems (EDS) for the screening of checked bags in the US at all commercial airports. He also served as the Aviation Security Laboratory Manager at the FAA, where he accelerated the development of explosive detection technology mandated by a presidential report and by the U.S. Congress. He also served as the FAA Technical Centre Management Systems Division as Manager.

Additionally, Mr Polillo has served as Special Projects Manager at the TSA Transportation Security Laboratory, where he allocated test lab space and set priorities for D, T&E and Certification Testing of various prototypes and production models for explosive detection systems and devices.

"Over the years we have been fortunate to attract industry veterans that represent the best and brightest of their industries to our board and Ron certainly reflects that tradition," said Michael Trudnak, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Guardian Technologies. "Ron has earned a strong reputation in the Aviation Industry as a leader with a can do attitude to bring people (Government and Industry) together as a team to focus on getting the mission accomplished in the fight against terrorism."

Mr Polillo currently serves as the President and Chief Executive Officer of RP-Security Solutions, where he oversees marketing and business development in the Homeland Security and Defense industries. He also provides engineering and scientific support for screening passengers, checked and carry-on baggage, as well as for cargo and mail for all modes of transportation.

"It is an honour to serve on the Board of Directors at Guardian and I look forward to leveraging my years of expertise and relationships within the government sector to help deliver the promise of the Company's next generation threat detection technology to airports around the world," said Mr Polillo.

Guardian business strategy capitalizes on the increasing global demand for products and services that promote health and safety through cutting-edge threat detection technologies that enable x-ray scanners, medical MRIs and other advanced imaging technologies to not just 'see' the contents of scanned objects, but to identify potential compound and physiological makeup.

Mr Polillo will replace Gina Marie Lindsay who recently accepted a new position as Executive Director of Los Angeles World Airports. The resignation is at the request of the Los Angeles City Council.
