Homeland Security Group International Keeps Investors Informed by Posting Ballistic Testing Data on Updated Website

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 12, 2007 -- Colonel Jeffrey A. Powers, CEO of Homeland Security Group International, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HMSG) announced today that the company is keeping its investors informed by updating its website at

The company announced that the ballistics page now shows pictures and testing data for its newest lightweight ballistic plates and blankets and also contains a listing of the National Stock Numbers (NSNs) that have been assigned to ballistic variant kits.

HMSG has previously announced that the company was placing increased emphasis on the focus of lightweight armor. HMSG has stated their goal of testing and marketing to the U.S. Military, an alternative to the currently issued small arms protective inserts (SAPI). "The current plates are very heavy," commented HMSG's CEO, Jeffrey Powers. "Our new composite plates are lighter than the currently issued ceramic plates and these plates have achieved NIJ Level III (Rifle) and Level IV. These plates sustained multiple hits from 5.56 and 7.62 and the rounds were unable to penetrate. Another great characteristic of the Level III plates is that they are neutral buoyant, which means they float. Our goal of finding and producing the lightest possible panels capable of stopping high velocity rounds has come to fruition," continued Powers. "Working closely with our manufacturing partner Protective Solutions, and we are now confident we have a product that will protect our troops and allow them greater mobility while wearing their armor."

HMSG also announced that the company's website now contains an updated letter to investors and a page dedicated to the Freedom Is Not Free foundation.
