WENR Negotiating Marketing Agreement for Airship

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - November 1, 2007) - WENR Corp. (PINKSHEETS: WNRC) announced today that it is negotiating with a company for "marketing rights" which is engaged in developing unmanned surveillance airships. The Company expects to announce a letter of intent in the near future.

Unmanned airships are increasingly being used for various applications. The potential applications include: border patrol, homeland security, coastal waters patrol, urban surveillance, remote wide area surveillance, battlefield surveillance, wildfire detection & prevention, communication relay, resources management, environmental monitoring and scientific research.

A recent example of where airships can be used to great effect is the recent wildfires in southern California. A properly equipped airship could have provided around the clock surveillance of the fires, aiding firefighters in their efforts to control the blazes. Expanding the concept still further, the same airships could provide cost effective continual surveillance of high-risk fire areas.

The DOD has expressed significant interest in utilizing airships to enhance the U.S. forces' surveillance capabilities. U.S. forces are already capable of real-time, limited surveillance of movements in populated areas. Airships could give users the ability to track activity in real time within a geographic area, record movements and analyze the data captured should an incident occur.

The airships can be equipped with a variety of sensors and analytical systems as well as transmitters and receivers for a range of uses -- civilian, government (e.g. traffic monitoring) and military (e.g. mine detection). These involve larger airships, which operate at low to medium altitudes. Compared to helicopters and aircraft, airships have a significant operational cost advantage where persistent monitoring is required, and compared with satellites, airships offer real-time and more precise monitoring of areas of interest. Airships also have advantages for several applications because of their low noise and vibration levels.
