View Systems Announces Receipt of SecureScan Purchase Order From Maryland Correctional Facility

BALTIMORE, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2006 --View Systems, Inc. (OTC BB: VYST), a leading homeland defense solutions provider, announced today that a purchase order for SecureScan II has been received from Maryland House of Corrections.

In October, View Systems presented SecureScan II to State Commissioner, Frank Sizer Jr., several Maryland Correctional Facility Wardens, and officials from the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. After a 60-day evaluation, the Maryland House of Corrections decided that the SecureScan II would be the right system to suit their security screening needs.

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 and pinpoint hidden razor blades and cell phones on its video image, which are crucial in correctional facility searches.

View Systems executive, Charlie Nelson, states, "We presented the SecureScan II in October of 2005 to the Department of Corrections in Maryland. In November, they began a 60-day evaluation at the Maryland House of Corrections Prison in Jessup, Maryland. I was happy to learn that Commissioner Sizer and Warden Smith were pleased with the capabilities of the SecureScan II and consequently finalized a purchase order."

View Systems CEO, Gunther Than, states, "There are 35 correctional facilities in the state of Maryland. The fact that after a 60-day evaluation the Maryland House of Corrections decided that the SecureScan II would be the right system to suit their security screening needs tells me that we have a strong possibility of satisfying these security needs for multiple correctional facilities in Maryland."
