Princeton Security Technologies (OTCBB: PSGY) to Deliver Its Handheld Radiation Detection Units to Japan Nuclear Crisis

PRINCETON, NJ--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) -  Princeton Security Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: PSGY), which develops Radiation Isotope Identifiers, Area Monitors and High Purity Germanium detector technology for Nuclear Power plant applications, homeland security markets, National Research Laboratories, security OEM systems integrators, hospitals and overseas nuclear safety agencies, received multiple new orders earlier this week for its Handheld Radiation Detection and Isotope Identification units. The new orders are to be delivered during Q2 and Q3 2011.

PSGY, cooperatively with Berkeley Nucleonics (San Rafael, CA), developed new Operating Systems for its handheld units specifically addressing the current nuclear crisis in Japan. The update targets contamination in Food and Water. The new Operating System includes specific features to identify radioactive contamination resulting from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant leak of radiation into the local environments. The most significant concern is identifying Cs-134, Cs137 and I-131 in meat, fish, milk and water.

The solution allows an additional mode for less technical users to screen specific concerns without compromising analytical spectroscopy stored in the instrument memory. Furthermore, the firmware allows compliance with federal guidelines for contamination monitoring already in place. The larger Asian market is in an uproar over contaminated imports and demand for this type of screening is exploding. Regional trading partners like South Korea, China, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia are all loading up on gear for screening protocols.

Princeton Security Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: PSGY), a leading supplier of Gamma-ray Detectors, Radiation Detection Area Monitors and Radioactive Isotope Identifier Devices (RIID) through its wholly-owned subsidiary Princeton Gamma-Tech Instruments Inc. (PGT), announced that the sales revenue from the orders will start during the 2nd quarter of 2011.
