United States Air Force UAV Battlelab Extends Open Invitation to Global Aerial Surveillance

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 26, 2005 -- Global Aerial Surveillance (OTC: GARS), a developer and manufacturer of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) for both commercial and military applications, announced today that it has received a written invitation from the Combat Applications Divisions Chief Douglas N. Larson, Maj, USAF, to demonstrate the company's products at the Air Force's Indian Springs facility.

The mission of the UAV Battlelab is to leverage commercial off the shelf (COTS) technology to meet warfighter needs through the use of UAVs. The UAV Battlelab is the Air Force's expert in the use of UAVs throughout the CAF. Larson commented, "We are here to save the lives of our men and women fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. I feel that the concepts that you (Global) have explained to us could potentially benefit and fill some of the gaps."

"The Air Force has extended us an open invitation to demonstrate our Wraith Drone and all of our other upcoming UAVs in Indian Springs," stated Craig Cervantes, CEO of Global Aerial Surveillance. "We couldn't be more pleased with their interest and enthusiasm for our prototypes and our ideas. Our goal is to develop and produce leading edge products that serve important niches and potentially save lives, whether military or civilian."

About Global Aerial Surveillance

Global Aerial Surveillance intends to capitalize on what the company sees as an opportunity in the civilian and military markets to provide Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for a myriad of potential applications. Although the applications for UAVs are numerous, Global intends to concentrate its development and marketing efforts in small, underserved niches where it can compete aggressively with pricing and service exceeding the competition.

Global will take a new approach to the development of UAV technology by making use of advanced composite construction techniques and materials and incorporating the latest in ultra light high speed computer processors to deliver a flexible, mission-specific UAV to its customers that can perform various complex missions.

A recent study of the worldwide UAV market concluded that US spending on UAVs amounted to about 73% of worldwide research and production spending in 2003. The US has dominated this market in recent years, due in part, to the depth of research and wide range of production programs.

Frost & Sullivan, a research group in San Antonio, Texas, forecasts that the market for UAVs will be worth nearly $5 billion by 2005. Michael Heinz, who heads Boeing's Unmanned Systems unit, and other executives at military contractors see an annual market of at least $10 billion by decade's end, with growth continuing at double-digit rates for a decade or more.
