View Systems Announces First Fingerprint Identification Reader Purchase Order From Georgia Court

BALTIMORE, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 16, 2006 --View Systems, Inc. (OTC BB: VYST), a leading homeland defense solutions provider, announced today that a purchase order has been received from the Butts County Court in Georgia for a SecureScan II system equipped with the fingerprint identification reader. The Courthouse will be the first courthouse in the nation to have this new version of the SecureScan II.

View Systems has developed, in conjunction with Sagem Morpho, a precision optical biometric fingerprint terminal for the SecureScan product. Sagem Morpho is the industry leader in multi-biometric solutions and applies more than twenty years of global experience in biometric products to markets including the FBI and Homeland Security agencies. The fingerprint reader will allow court employees safer and easier access to the courthouse.

Funded by the Department of Justice, the SecureScan II's non-contact imaging capabilities reduce the need for wanding and pat-down searches. While ignoring common items like coins, watches, and jewelry, the SecureScan II is sensitive enough to locate hidden razor blades and cell phones on its video image.

View Systems Executive, Charlie Nelson, states, "We have installed a number of units in the Georgia courthouses. This is the first courthouse to use the fingerprint identification reader. The fingerprint reader matches the fingerprint on file identifying and authenticating the employee all in under three seconds."
