View Systems Acquires Nuclear Radiation Sensor Technology

BALTIMORE, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 24, 2006 -- View Systems, Inc. (OTC BB: VYST), a leading homeland defense solutions provider, announced today that it has entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with Battelle Energy Alliance, LLC under contract to the US Department of Energy. The technology is designed to be used by the Department of Homeland Security, port security, Special Forces, and private security personnel to interdict and prevent a nuclear or radiological attack on the United States.

Reactor & Nuclear Physics Scientist, Dr. Rahmat Aryaeinejad, and Advisory Engineer / Scientist for the Nuclear Nonproliferation Division, David F. Spencer, both from the Idaho National Laboratory in Idaho Falls, Idaho, state, "The radiation detection device is uniquely capable of detecting both gamma ray and neutron radiation sources to assist in Nonproliferation and Homeland Security applications. The device is very sensitive and is capable of detecting very low level radiation above the ambient background level. In a stand-alone application, the device can be used to find the location of the radiation source."

View Systems' CEO, Gunther Than, states, "This CRADA will significantly expand our product line in providing state-of-the-art detection capabilities to the market. The sensors detect neutron and gamma radiation emitted by lethal nuclear devices or radioactive isotopes that could be dispersed by less sophisticated explosives such as those in a 'dirty bomb.' We intend to integrate this sensor technology with our other products in the near future. I think, simply put, that with this equipment, we can help prevent and mitigate the threat of nuclear attacks."
