Global Aerial Surveillance Contacted by NASA Dryden Research Lab Regarding the Access 5 Project

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 28, 2005 -- Global Aerial Surveillance (OTC: GARS), a developer and manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for both commercial and military applications, today announced that it has recently been contacted by the NASA Dryden research facility regarding their potential interest in working with Global Aerial Surveillance on the Access 5 project.

The company feels that the inquiry reflects positive recognition for the research and development work Global is conducting on its new collision avoidance system. Global plans to introduce the system to military and private industry. Craig Cervantes, CEO of Global Aerial Surveillance, stated, "We are excited to have been contacted to work with NASA and other Industry leaders regarding the implementation of our proposed LADAR collision avoidance product. Cooperating with NASA and integrating their resources and expertise into our product should give us the opportunity to get it into the market much sooner." He added, "With the resources that NASA has proposed to assist us with, we will have greater technological expertise and proven software, written and tested by some of the top minds in the industry. We are excited about the new possibilities this opportunity will create for Global."

Project 5 is a national project sponsored by NASA and Industry with participation by the FAA and DOD to introduce high altitude long endurance (HALE) remotely operated aircraft (ROA) for routine flights in the National Airspace System (NAS). Access 5 commenced in May 2004 and is slated to run for five years. The project has received initial funding from NASA and guarantees of support from the ROA industry.

The goal of Access 5 is to enable what government and industry leaders believe will ultimately be a robust civil and commercial market for HALE ROA. The current lack of ready access to the NAS inhibits investment in ROA commercialization and the ability of users to obtain cost-effective ROA services. Access 5 seeks to remove the barriers to aviation's most compelling new offering in decades.

About Global Aerial Surveillance

Global Aerial Surveillance intends to capitalize on what the company sees as an opportunity in the civilian and military markets to provide Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for a myriad of potential applications. Although the applications for UAVs are numerous, Global intends to concentrate its development and marketing efforts in small, underserved niches where it can compete aggressively with pricing and service exceeding the competition.

Global will take a new approach to the development of UAV technology by making use of advanced composite construction techniques and materials and incorporating the latest in ultra-light high-speed computer processors to deliver a flexible, mission-specific UAV to its customers that can perform various complex missions.

A recent study of the worldwide UAV market concluded that US spending on UAVs amounted to about 73% of worldwide research and production spending in 2003. The US has dominated this market in recent years, due in part to the depth of research and wide range of production programs.

Frost & Sullivan, a research group in San Antonio, Texas, forecasts that the market for UAVs will be worth nearly $5 billion by 2005. Michael Heinz, who heads Boeing's Unmanned Systems unit, and other executives at military contractors see an annual market of at least $10 billion by decade's end, with growth continuing at double-digit rates for a decade or more.
