POINT ROBERTS, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 5, 2006 -- (HDS) and (BPS) leading investor and industry portals for the homeland defense and security sector, announce new featured security technology company, TraceGuard Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: TCGD). TraceGuard Technologies is currently developing a portfolio of trace extraction and collection systems: CarrySafe, HoldSafe and CargoSafe at its new R & D center in Petach Tikva, Israel. The systems are designed to be used in screening methods for identifying drugs, explosive and biological threats at airports, border crossings and ports and can be integrated into existing systems.

The newly acquired facility gives the Company the ability to conduct required testing of its products, systems and technologies to bring the products to market. TraceGuard's technologies target areas that face a potential high risk of terrorist attacks. CarrySafe is being designed to fully automate the extraction of explosive traces during the security screening of carry-on luggage. HoldSafe is being engineered to screen checked luggage and is designed to be easily integrated into existing Computer Tomography Explosive Detection Systems (CT-EDS) luggage screening systems; and the CargoSafe screening system for palletized cargo which is being designed to be integrated into cargo screening systems.

With secure border issues being a recent topic of concern and discussion, Homeland Security is once again gaining momentum with investors and industry. Homeland Security Research Corp reports, "Where the Homeland Security outlay was 12% of the world's total defense outlay in 2003, it is expected to become 25% of the total defense outlay by 2015. This reflects a shift which originates from the restructuring of defense budgets in order to be better prepared to address the threats of terror." HSRC forecasts global Homeland Security markets will triple from $60B in 2006 to $180B in 2015.

TraceGuard Technologies' management and Board include a vast military and security expertise base. Dr. Ehud Ganani, Chairman and CEO, is a security technology expert, previously CEO of IMI (Israeli Military Industries) and VP Marketing & Business Development at RAFAEL, one of the top three companies dominating Israeli military production. Dr. Ganani is also Chairman of the Board of DefenSoft Ltd., which designs and supplies defense array design systems, a member of the board of directors of Gilat Satellite Networks Inc. and a former visiting professor and research fellow at the University of California at Davis.

TraceGuard Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: TCGD) seeks to materialize and commercialize its innovative technology in the expanding market of explosive trace extraction and collection systems.
