Nuclear Solutions, Inc. Receives Patent Office Notice of Allowance for Additional Patents Related to Patented Shielded Nuclear Weapon Detection Technology

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - December 18, 2008) - Nuclear Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: NSOL) announced today that it received "Notice Of Allowance" from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for new patented technology intended for detection of shielded nuclear weapons.

A Notice of Allowance generally completes the substantive examination of a patent application. Following a Notice of Allowance, the normal process which results in final issuance of a United States patent involves several administrative steps, including fee-payment, that are typically completed following issuance of this notice.

The newly allowed patents, first published as U.S. Patent Application Publication Numbers 20060082765, titled "Specific Density Detector" and 20060082788, titled "Specific density detector and optical multiplexer improvement" on April 20, 2006 are expected to issue in 2009.

The company's first patent on this technology, titled "Specific density detector with electro mechanical actuator and improved mirror" USP #7,298,469 was issued on November 20, 2007. Once the recently allowed patents are issued, the company's technology portfolio related to shielded nuclear weapon detection will span 3 issued U.S. patents with additional patents pending.

The patented technology pertains to a detection technique based on the known phenomenon of semiconductor laser mode hopping, triggered by the gravitational interaction with high specific density nuclear materials.
