Acro Enhances Efforts for Development of the "Accipiter," the Novel Explosives Detector

CAESAREA, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - December 29, 2009) - Following the news that President Obama has ordered an airline security review, as a result of the attempted terror attack aboard a Northwest Airlines flight, Acro Inc. (OTCBB: ACRI) has decided to enhance efforts for development of a new explosives detector.

"Accipiter" is based on advanced X-ray technology that allows for positive detection and identification of concealed explosives. "We estimate that a working prototype can become available for airport testing within 12 months if we'll succeed to recruit the finical resources," says Mr. Gadi Aner, Acro's CEO. "We believe that our 'Accipiter' will help to intercept terror attempts, by providing airport security with powerful and inexpensive tools for early detecting of concealed explosives."
