Universal Detection Technology's Partner in Border and Zone Security Systems Recipient of Global Security Challenge Award

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/02/09 -- Universal Detection Technology (www.udetection.com) (OTCBB: UNDT), a developer of early-warning monitoring technologies to protect people from bioterrorism and other infectious health threats and provider of counter-terrorism consulting and training services, reported today that its partner in the development of border and zone security sensors, Precision Sensors Instrumentation (PSI), was the recipient of the top award in the 2008 Global Security Challenge Competition.

The Global Security Challenge (GSC) is a central hub for security innovators, startups and investors with events around the globe. The GSC aims to empower entrepreneurs in the security technology space and run the leading business plan competitions to find the most promising security and defense startups in the world. In 2008, PSI submitted a proposal for its border and zone security technology to the GSC international technology/business plan competition, and it was chosen out of several hundred as one of five Asian semifinalists. The international jury was composed of officials from the U.S. Department of Defense and Singapore's Defense Science Technology Agency. PSI subsequently participated in the GSC Grand Finals in London where it received a Silver Cup.

PSI has adapted one of the most sensitive seismic sensors available today and has adapted it into an ultra-sensitive position sensor. The sensor remotely detects intruders into a security zone by detecting the unique seismic signature they produce either on foot or by vehicles. The sensor is also designed to be totally passive and undetectable and can function without the need of line of sight visibility. The sensor can optimally be used for border protection or the physical security of a perimeter such as an army base or a port.

The U.S. Border & Perimeter protection market is expected to be one of the fastest growing market segments in Homeland Security. According to Homeland Security Research Corp.'s (HSRC) landmark research, 2007-2011 U.S. Homeland Security (Government & Private Sectors) Market Outlook, this market is expected to accumulate to $13.9B between 2007 and 2011. The market demand is composed of both Government and Private sectors, with the majority of the growth coming from the Federal Government.

"The awards from the Global Security Challenge competitions prove that PSI's technology promises to be one of the most sensitive border and zone security systems on the market today," said Mr. Jacques Tizabi, UNDT's Chief Executive Officer. "We are proud to market this technology in the United States," he added.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
