WATERTOWN, Mass., Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Dynasil Corporation of America
(NASDAQ: DYSL) today announced that its RMD Research subsidiary has been
awarded contracts totaling $2.1 million from the Department of Homeland
Security's Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DNDO). These contracts will
advance the government's research and development initiatives focused on the
identification of illicit nuclear materials.

"The DNDO continues to tap our highly specialized materials research expertise
to develop technology for critical homeland security applications," said Peter
Sulick, Dynasil's Chairman of the Board, Interim Chief Executive Officer and
President. "These awards focus on the development of next generation
materials to combat nuclear smuggling by improving detection of illicit
materials at ports, airports, railways and border crossings.

"We believe that our research provides integrated solutions to identify
neutron and gamma rays, which are signatures of highly enriched uranium and
weapons-grade plutonium," Sulick said. "The threat of terrorists smuggling
nuclear materials into the country to create weapons of mass destruction is
one of the most serious threats faced by the United States. To prevent this
from occurring requires equipping border crossings and shipping ports in the
United States and abroad with advanced systems to detect the telltale
signature of nuclear materials. RMD's objective is to assist the DNDO in its
mission to enhance the nation's nuclear and radiological materials detection
capabilities. At the same time, research awards like these help drive
Dynasil's commercialization efforts and advance our goal of developing
proprietary technology that addresses significant market opportunities."
