View Systems Announces Integration of Nuclear Radiation Sensor Technology With Visual First Responder (VFR)

BALTIMORE, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 -- View Systems, Inc. (OTC BB: VYST), a leading homeland defense solutions provider, announced today that the newly acquired Nuclear Radiation Sensor Technology will be integrated with the Visual First Responder (VFR) Hazmat Camera. The VFR "N" will provide a number of core advantages over currently available detection products for the Homeland Security marketplace. It is expected to measure slightly larger than a pager, yet will possess powerful sensing technology. When complete, this integration will improve and enhance the VFR. The system implementation will provide an autonomous, traceable, and secure method of detecting radioactive materials within an environment.

View Systems owns the exclusive worldwide marketing rights for the SecureScan and the Visual First Responder which positions the company for high-growth revenues in multiple industries and markets. View Systems expects to have its first-generation prototype of the handheld, lightweight device ready by mid 2006, and ready for marketing by late 2006.

This unique and patented 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.

An article found on EarthLink News quotes Rep. Charles Dent, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, as saying, "Of all the concerns we have for our nation's security, the most serious is the threat of nuclear or biological attack." The main point of the article was to tell readers about the Nevada Test Site which is called the Radiological/Nuclear Countermeasures Test and Evaluation Complex. More information can be found at http://www.nv.doe.gov/nationalsecurity/homelandsecurity/radnuc.htm.

Dave Johansen, Manager of Homeland Defense Products for View Systems states, "There's nothing else remotely similar to this device on the market. This integration will make accessible to customers of all sizes and with wide ranging budgets the most advanced detection capabilities available at dramatic cost savings, possibly about one-fifth of the current cost of leading detection systems."
