Homeland Security Group Unveils Sales Strategy for Neptune EBD-1 Underwater Breathing Device

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 11/14/06 -- Homeland Security Group International (PINKSHEETS: HMSG) announced today that it has completed a marketing strategy for its Neptune EBD-1 Emergency Breathing Device.

The company has enlisted the help of two industry experts to lend advice on the best avenues for sale of the Neptune device to military, commercial, recreational and Public Safety divers. Mr. Greg Knyper of North County Scuba Center (www.ncscubacenter.com) has agreed to come on board to advise HMSG on design modifications and introductions to the Public Safety diver community. Mr. Doug Scott, a well known and respected expert in the field of emergency response planning and intrusion detection, has agreed to help introduce the Neptune EBD-1 to hundreds of Emergency Management leaders across the country.

"We have started a full court press on the marketing of the Neptune EBD-1 to all areas of the dive community," commented Colonel Jeffrey Powers, HMSG CEO. "Our Neptune has received massive press coverage and has been written about in most major diving publications. We have the attention of the dive community both civilian and military and with the addition of these two powerhouses we are going full steam ahead to the roll-out of the product."

"I am very happy to have been asked by HMSG to assist them in their efforts to bring their Neptune product to the market," commented Doug Scott. "I believe in this company and their product and feel confident that we can sweep the market with this and the new unit HMSG is working on. In the next few weeks we will have introduced the Neptune to dozens of Emergency Management Agencies nationwide."

The company also announced that in conjunction with its joint venture partner, Recon Mountaineer LLC (RM), it has placed its newest product the new "SOF Load Master System" or "SLMS Suite" on their website for viewing. HMSG currently has a bid before the Special operations community to supply them with over 30,000 of the new load bearing systems. Designed by and for special operations forces, the new system is modular in design and consists of a Courier/Butt Bag, Assault Pack and Patrol Pack. This newest version of the Combat Load Bearing Equipment is available for viewing on the Homeland Security Group website at: http://www.hstinc.us.


Measuring only 10 inches long, 3 inches wide and weighing only 3 pounds, the Neptune EBD1 supplies 4 to 8 minutes of positive, 2-stage regulated airflow depending on stress level. The Neptune EBD1 utilizes factory-sealed air canisters making it immediately ready for use even after prolonged storage. Just one hand is required to start the device. It is small and lightweight and comes with an optional holster pouch. Only a short orientation is required prior to use. The device is ideal for aircrew members, workers in confined spaces (such as mines), firefighters, law enforcement, divers, hazmat crews, etc.
