View Systems Receives Additional SecureScan Purchase Orders From Maryland House of Corrections

BALTIMORE, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 24, 2006 -- View Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: VYST), a leading homeland defense solutions provider, announced today that additional purchase orders for SecureScan units have been received from two correctional facilities in Maryland: The Maryland House of Corrections in Jessup and MRDCC.

View Systems executive, Charles Nelson, states, "Commissioner Frank Sizer initiated the effort to attain funds for new security equipment for all Maryland prisons in October of 2005. The first SecureScan units were installed in January of 2006. His vision was to upgrade security for all Maryland Correctional Facilities. His suggestions to incorporate biometric fingerprint scanning and positive ID recognition have greatly added to the abilities of the SecureScan. I have great respect for Commissioner Sizer and I hope the citizens of Maryland become aware of his year-long struggle to get these units in place."

Funded by the Department of Justice, SecureScan'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 is sensitive enough to locate hidden razor blades and cell phones on its video image, which are crucial in correctional facility searches.

Gunther Than, CEO of View Systems, states, "The vision and guidance of Commissioner Sizer has given us the opportunity to create a technology specifically for use in correctional facilities. Knowing that we can fill a need in our own back yard goes to the core of a business created for the welfare and common good of the people of this state."
