HomelandDefenseStocks.com -- As the Anniversary of 9/11 Approaches
Spade Defense Audio Update Looks at Government Spending and the Vital
Role of Defense and Security Technology 
POINT ROBERTS, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/07/06 --
www.HomelandDefenseStocks.com (HDS), a global investor and industry
news portal for the homeland defense and security sector, presents
the Spade Defense Index Online Audio Update. With attention for the
next several weeks on the 5th anniversary of 9/11 and Congress likely
focusing on defense-related issues prior to adjourning for the fall,
we turn to Scott Sacknoff, manager of the SPADE(R) Defense Index
(AMEX: DXS), to get his insight on these issues. 
This update report reviews the focus by the U.S. government on two
main areas within homeland security -- weapons that cause widespread
disaster and those of a more local nature. Scott Sacknoff explains,
"Much of the resources allocated by the U.S. government have been
spent to prevent weapons of mass destruction, which is why so much
attention has been focused on port security and border security. The
second area is identifying acts employing explosives and attacks of a
more local level. These can usually only be stopped via intelligence
and surveillance efforts as the recent success by United Kingdom
authorities shows." 
Mr. Sacknoff acknowledges that while some success has been achieved
through efforts from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), there
is still significant work to be done. "New technology, intelligence
gathering and interpretation, and profiling are the keys to success,"
states Sacknoff. 
Efforts to strengthen our military have resulted in a growing demand
for innovative technology in areas such as surveillance,
reconnaissance, search and rescue, as well as combat. As Mr. Sacknoff
describes, "There are considerable resources going into areas such as
body armor, armor plating for more durable ground equipment,
electronic and physical countermeasures, and equipment that enable
soldiers to share information to improve field operations and reduce
friendly fire. There is also an increase in funding for remote
systems such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or drones that enable the
military to perform surveillance and engage the enemy at a distance,
land robotic and unmanned ground and sea vehicles with surveillance
and search and rescue capabilities, and electronics that more
accurately hit their target to reduce damage to nearby systems and
reduce civilian casualties."
