Acro, Inc. Receives Purchase Order for Explosive Detection Kits From Government Agency Overseeing Security for Global Sporting Event

Acro's Kits Will Be Used to Protect Popular, Live Event From Potential Terror Threats

CAESAREA, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) -  Acro, Inc. (OTCBB: ACRI), a manufacturer of explosive detection solutions for the homeland security market and related sectors, today announced the receipt of a purchase order for the Company's ACRO-SET and ACRO-ETK explosive detection kits from a government agency for use at a global sporting event.

"Our kits will help prevent terror attacks at an event that is sure to attract people from all over the world," said Gadi Aner, Chairman and CEO of Acro, Inc. "This represents Acro's second order for the deployment of our products for a live event, and is a significant step in our growing global recognition, and sales expansion."

The ACRO-SET is a sensitive, rapid and reliable kit for field detection and identification of trace explosives. Weighing about one-quarter pound, this kit contains the ACRO-PET, which detects improvised explosives such as TATP, and the ACRO-NET, which detects the entire range of the nitro explosives including all conventional explosives, the improvised ammonium nitrate, ANFO, and urea nitrate. Conveniently packed in a belt pouch, the Acro-SET is, in effect, a portable, inexpensive "micro-laboratory" for identification of all explosives by any law enforcement personnel.

The ACRO-ETK5 Plus is a highly sensitive, simple, rapid, precise and reliable operation that revolutionizes the detection and identification of explosives in the field for police and other security agencies.
