Advanced Defense Technologies (ADTI) Building Technology Alliances and Joint Ventures Within Homeland Security Industry

Homeland Security Market Expected to Reach US$194 Billion in 2011

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 22, 2011) - Advanced Defense Technologies, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ADCF), announced today the Company is building technology alliances and joint ventures within the global Homeland Security industry. Global industry analysts calculate that the value of the Homeland Security industry will reach as much as US$194.3bn in 2011. ADTI has been working on positioning itself with key technology partners and industry leaders to expedite product development, manufacturing and revenue generation.

Homeland Security (HLS) is a substantial expanding market that offers a vast number of opportunities for private sector entities. Despite sharp budget cuts and fiscal austerity measures implemented across advanced economies, Visiongain calculates that the value of the HLS industry reached as much as US$194.3bn in 2011. Visiongain's latest report, The Homeland Security Market 2011-2021 expects this growth to continue over the next 10 years as governments in the West largely insulate HLS expenditure from cuts and emerging markets pour unprecedented funds into defensive measures against threats such as terrorism, cyber attack, natural disasters and piracy.

A variety of scanning, detection and protection capabilities are being deployed and refined in this growing market. Moreover, the scope for integration of current protective measures is considerable. A host of new technologies and inventive applications of current equipment is required to secure states from threats to their populations, assets and infrastructures. From UAVs to biometric e-passports, from underwater sonar equipment to advanced imaging technology, the market for Homeland Security is large and varied.

The US dominates the Homeland Security Market, and is among only a handful of countries to have a dedicated Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Other major markets include Saudi Arabia, India and China -- all of which are set to experience strong growth in the coming decades as they grapple with a variety of internal and external threats to stability. The EU nations of France, Italy, Germany and UK are finding their efforts to improve Homeland Security limited by the strain of budgetary pressure, but are nonetheless likely to experience growth too.
