ST. PETERSBURG, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 13, 2006 -- Cyber Defense Systems, Inc.

To read the story by Reporter Valerie Boey of WTSP/Channel 10 covering the Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg area and view the video clip go to New Way of Surveillance (

The Company's Vice President of Engineering, Jim Alman, was a part of this story, in which he said of the CyberBug, "They're unmanned air vehicles that have cameras on board and they're used primarily for surveillance."

David Shelton, an aerospace engineer that works with Jim Alman at Cyber Defense, commented in the story, "The CyberBug is constructed mostly from carbon fiber and fiberglass so it's very light and durable. These UAVs will cruise at 26 miles per hour and can fly for more than an hour."

Jim Alman said, "The UAV operators of tomorrow are the kids that are playing games today and we really wanted to make it as user friendly as we could for the future pilot, so the natural way to go was with a simple video game type controller."

About the CyberBug UAV

The CyberBug UAV is scalable and provides camera solution on both the small 2.6 pound platform as well as significant cameras solutions for day and night vision on the larger platform 14 pound platform which also has the capability to fly on station in a programmed or manual mode for up to an hour, traveling at speeds up to 30 MPH with a camera foot print of 300 x 300 depending on day or night view.

In the recent demonstrations with Maryland State police, initial acceptance of the CyberBug™ has led both law enforcement and Military forces in several countries to believe that the CyberBug™ is ideal for use in covert missions as it is silent (electric) and the on station duration for one hour. The CyberBug™ product allows users to view data captured by sensors from a wireless product to any location throughout the world providing a significant advantage in a low cost solution to surveillance.
