DKL International Expands Into Middle East

Reports Increased Japanese Orders for LifeGuard™ System

VIENNA, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 18, 2005 -- DKL International, Inc., the world's leading supplier of passive human detection technology, announces Al Kashef Scientific & Laboratory Equipment L.L.C. as the first distributor of DKL's LifeGuard in the Middle East. A company agent successfully completed the LifeGuard training course, and the first units have been delivered to their headquarters in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Mr. Hakim Chebaa, the Managing Director of Al Kashef, has already received several inquiries from his sales territory, which includes Arabian Gulf countries, Morocco, and Algeria. Al Kashef is now certified to instruct operators in the use of the LifeGuard system. The company will maintain an inventory to provide faster delivery and customer service.

Additional Orders from Japan

An increasing number of emergency organizations in Japan are also placing orders for the DKL LifeGuard. These orders are being driven by the need to find survivors in collapsed housing, avalanches, and other life-threatening situations.

DKL International continues to build a worldwide dealer and distributor network to supply the military, security and fire/rescue organizations for which LifeGuard was developed. DKL employees are working to deliver back orders that now number in the hundreds. Plans are underway to leverage the Company's technology through strategic partnerships with additional domestic and international dealers and through existing relationships with major defense and security providers.

About DKL International, Inc.

Patented in eighteen countries, DKL's initial product, the LifeGuard, is a passive electronic sensor that detects the electric field created by a beating human heart. A patented Selective Polarization Filter (SPF) eliminates all but the unique ultra low frequency (ULF), non-uniform human field so that the LifeGuard detects only living humans. The LifeGuard can locate and track a standing adult from a distance of at least 500 meters in the open and at shorter distances through concrete walls, steel bulkheads, brick, earthworks, plastics, heavy foliage, water and other barriers. The U.S. Army National Guard's Center for National Response has placed the DKL LifeGuard on its list of recommended equipment for first responders.
