Seenex Forms Alliance With Syft Technologies

Seenex will Integrate Syft’s Explosive Detection Technology with its
Critical Infrastructure Security Solution

Washington, D.C., July 28, 2004 – (GOVSEC, booth #3624) - Seenex LLC, a provider of a proven platform for integrated security products and service solutions, announced today that it has formed an alliance with Syft Technologies, a New Zealand-based company that develops and markets Selected Ion Flow Tube Mass Spectrometry (SIFT-MS) products and services. This partnership will enable the integration of Syft’s innovative explosive trace detection technology with Seenex’s established platform of security access control solutions.

Syft’s mass spectrometry technology has been under development for over 20 years. It represents a new approach to delivering real-time, high accuracy measurements of trace compounds in complex gas mixtures. By integrating SIFT-MS with Seenex’s security solutions, the SIFT-MS system will take a minute sample of air as a person passes through a Seenex security portal and measure the presence of trace elements of explosives or other substances.

According to a study conducted by the National Academy of Sciences “security advantages accrue directly from (the features of MS), including faster diagnosis of potential threats, greater capability for detecting new threat species, and improved instrument performance – especially under unfavorable background conditions.”

“Syft’s mass spectrometry technology is leading the way in the explosive trace detectors arena,” said Paul Milone, co-founder and CEO of Seenex. “We are looking for the most advanced and reliable technologies to offer our clients. SIFT-MS is a perfect explosive detection solution to be integrated with our proven platform of access control portal systems and other value-added advanced security technologies.”

“Seenex’s critical infrastructure security platform is a logical fit for our SIFT-MS technology,” said Geoff Peck, COO at Syft. “Seenex’s integrated security solution enables organizations to work with one security company for a robust, end-to-end security solution to meet their mission-critical security needs. We are looking forward to implementing our joint solutions to help protect both government and commercial organizations around the world.”

Seenex continues to build an innovative network of products and services for the expanding security market in North America. It has already partnered with industry leaders Tonali, an Italian manufacturer of advanced security portal systems; Diebold (NYSE: DBD), a global leader in self-service delivery systems, security and services to the financial, government, retail and commercial markets headquartered in Canton, Ohio; and Sun-Lite, a Washington, D.C.-based architectural security products design and construction company.
