Innovation in Surveillance, Reconnaissance, Sensors and Robotics
Technology Drives Military Market -- Recent Upward Momentum Seen in the Price
of Several Homeland Security Stocks 
POINT ROBERTS, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 10/05/06 -- (HDS), a global investor and industry
news portal for the homeland defense and security sector, takes a
look at the growing military market through "Innovation in
Surveillance, Reconnaissance, Sensors and Robotics Technology Drives
Military Market." Battlefield operations have become a hotbed for
technological innovation as the nation strives to protect and improve
its military advantage. Garnering significant attention in recent
years has been surveillance and reconnaissance, sensors and robotics
technology, along with products that assist in safeguarding military
personnel and equipment. 
While the summer months saw lower stock performance from many
companies within this sector, the past several weeks have shown upward
momentum in the price of several Homeland Security stocks. As Scott
Sacknoff, Manager of the SPADE Defense Index describes, "Whereas the
SPADE Defense Index has been relatively flat throughout the month of
September, a number of homeland security companies have outperformed
the benchmark from anywhere to 0.5% to nearly 8%." 
DRS Technologies (NYSE: DRS) is a leading supplier of integrated
products, services and support to military forces, intelligence
agencies and prime contractors worldwide. The DRS Unmanned
Technologies division has developed Unmanned Aerial Vehicle models,
the Neptune(TM) and Sentry(R), which provide surveillance in areas
too dangerous to send troops into for intelligence and target
acquisition missions. As Patricia M. Williamson, Vice President,
Corporate Communications & Investor Relations for DRS, describes,
"Our UAVs are in demand by the Army, Navy and Air Force, as well as
special operations. Beyond our UAVs, we continue to see strong demand
for our infrared technologies applied in surveillance and target
detection missions on major U.S. Army and Marine Corps ground vehicles
assets, helicopters and other aircraft, Navy ships and in night vision
sighting devices that equip individual soldiers." 
Surveillance technology that includes sensors as well as
reconnaissance devices has been a military segment that has
experienced considerable evolution as innovators work with government
to address battlefield and combat area requirements. 
Argon ST (NASDAQ: STST) is a systems engineering and development
company providing command, control, communications, computers,
intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance solutions. According to
Argon ST's Jeffrey Brown, Strategic Business Development, "There is a
need for persistent and pervasive surveillance in extremely demanding
asymmetric battle spaces and demand by our military customers for
interoperability, remote access and control as well as full
networkability. As a result, there is an ever increasing demand for
smaller more capable full-spectrum, multi-function sensors and
offensive Information Operations/Warfare weapons." 
Moving forward Joe Mackin, CEO of Technest Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:
TCNH), a provider of advanced remote sensor systems, chemical
detectors, intelligent surveillance and advanced 3D imaging
technology solutions, sees significant military demand for long-range
threat detection in various environments around the world. "The
greatest demand continues to be the U.S. Department of Defense and
the Intelligence community. More specifically, the ever increasing
requirement for smaller multi-function systems that can operate
autonomously in hostile environments yet still provide the
data/information the warfighter requires for mission accomplishment,"
explains Mackin.
