Security With Advanced Technology Promotes New Avurt™ IM-5™ Launcher at Mind, Body, Spirit Games in New York City

Avurt Team Gives Self-Defense Training and Distributes Avurt IM-5 Launcher Materials to Participants at the Mind, Body, Spirit Games Held in Central Park

WESTMINSTER, CO--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - Security With Advanced Technology (NASDAQ: SWAT) announced today that it sponsored the Mind, Body, Spirit Games by Fitness Magazine on September 8, 2007 in Central Park in New York City to promote its new Avurt™ IM-5™ launcher.

"Participating in high profile events such as the Mind, Body, Spirit Games in New York's Central Park is a great way to promote our new products and services like the IM-5 launcher and 'Living in 360™' self-defense training," said Scott Sutton, president and CEO. "These events also help us expose the importance and correlation between self-defense products and training and personal wellness. Our company is focused on improving lives through safety with security products and self-defense training, and events like this are a perfect match for our overall vision. This is the first of many grass-roots events we plan on attending to promote our products and services."

While at the event the Avurt team taught self-defense to promote their "Living in 360" self-defense classes, a self-defense training program designed around the IM-5 launcher. As a sponsor of the event, Avurt had a booth to hand out collaterals and answer questions about the IM-5 launcher, and the Avurt IM-5 launcher logo appeared on all event t-shirts and signage.

The Avurt IM-5 launcher is a small, handheld self-defense device that launches up to five PAVA filled projectiles at attackers up to 40 feet away. The IM-5 launcher's PAVA filled projectiles are non-lethal, but will cause an attacker's nose, throat and eyes to burn, temporarily disabling them. The IM-5 Launcher Kit is available for pre-sales at an introductory price of $299 at and includes one IM-5 launcher (available in black, blue, red or pink), 10 practice rounds, a carrying case, a training DVD and an instruction manual.
