Homeland Security Group Announces Successful Product Demonstration

DEL MAR, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 21, 2006 -- Homeland Security Group International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HMSG) is pleased to announce to its stockholders that the company conducted a successful product demonstration for Media, Law enforcement, Military and Congressional representatives on 20 June, 2006. The product demonstration was conducted at the San Diego Regional Firearms Training Center and was broadcast live on KUSI Television's "Good Morning San Diego" program. During the program segments HMSG showcased and demonstrated the ballistic capabilities of their new, lightweight, ballistic Small Arms Protective Insert (SAPI) plates, state-of-the-art laser marksmanship training device, PowerShield safety and security glass laminates and various versions of their Combat Trauma Bag. In addition, the company demonstrated technology designed to enhance communications between emergency responders during disasters. The company also discussed the threat to US and Coalition Forces posed by Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in Iraq and Afghanistan and demonstrated the ARNISI ECM-1 technology designed to defeat detonators on these devices.

"Our products were very well received and distinguished invitees left convinced that we can do exactly what we said we could. They now know that we don't just talk the talk, we walk the walk," commented Colonel Jeffrey A. Powers USMC (Ret), CEO of HMSG.

During the demonstration HMSG highlighted the company's lightweight ballistic armor and conducted an unscientific ballistic test for the live television audience. Marksmen fired at the new Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPI) from 25 yards with a variety of friendly and threat weapons and ammunition. The SAPI plates survived all impacts with not one penetration.

HMSG has been invited to follow-on meetings later this week with representatives of the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. The purpose of those meetings will be to discuss the results of the demonstration and establish procedures for advancing a timetable aimed at equipping Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen with equipment introduced during the demonstration.

HMSG was joined at the demonstration by five of their joint venture companies: Recon Mountaineer, LLC, Protective Enterprises LLC, FED-COMM USA, HanitaTek and Rovatec.

"To say we are pleased with the way our products performed would be an understatement," continued Powers. "This demonstration was a phenomenal success and we were able to convey to the attendees the high level of focus that is needed on these products. We definitely have their attention now," concluded Powers.
