Homeland Security Corporation Announces Development of Oil Industry Gas Flare Management and Warning System

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - February 1, 2011) - Homeland Security Corporation (PINKSHEETS: HSCC) pleased to announce an addition to its line of industrial safety systems.

Oil industry gas flares or flare stacks are used to eliminate waste gases that are unsuitable for use or transport and to reduce pressures from non-waste gas that can strain equipment. During an emergency, gas flares or flare stacks can also help to burn out the total reserve gas.

HSCC's innovative warning system will trigger a wireless signal to the main communications center on an oil platform when the flame in the flare stack goes out. A Digital Video Recorder (DVR) will activate a camera to verify that the flame has been extinguished. If no personnel are in the booth or ops center to see the monitor, the DVR connected to the internet sends a signal to a cell phone and or computer on the internal network until a response is initiated. The system can be set to turn on warning lights or sirens to warn of the flare being extinguished. An automated relight system can be utilized. The system is designed to work with a single flare or multiple flares in several locations.

"This system is currently under review in the state of Louisiana and we anticipate approval for use on our customer's rigs in the gulf. The intent is to increase safety, efficiency, and compliance while also realizing cost savings for our customers. This new wireless system is robust and designed for ease of installation," said David L. Shade, HSCC Chairman and C.E.O.

HSCC will continue to develop and commercialize this new technology for use in oil and gas wells, oil rigs, petroleum refineries, chemical plants, natural gas plants, and landfills.
