Acro Keeps Broadening Its Spectrum of Hand-Held Explosives Detection Devices

CAESAREA, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - March 11, 2010) -  Acro, Inc. (OTCBB: ACRI) has successfully completed the development of its new product, Acro-ANET, a specific tester and a trace-detector of Ammonium Nitrate. The white crystals of ammonium nitrate are commonly used in agriculture as high-nitrogen fertilizer. Unfortunately, this compound is also being used as an improvised explosive by terrorist organizations worldwide. It is the main component of ammonium nitrate fuel oil (ANFO), an increasingly popular component of improvised explosive devices. 

Potential clients who are fighting global terror have informed Acro about their urgent need for the new tester, and Acro responded accordingly. "This new device significantly expands our product portfolio. It demonstrates our strategy of quickly responding to urgent needs with a broad variety of simple, inexpensive and highly reliable solutions for the intricate problems of explosives detection," says Gadi Aner, Acro's CEO. 

Acro-ANET will become commercially available by the end of March 2010.
