BALTIMORE, Md., 23 February 2005. View Systems, Inc. today announced they have delivered two Visual First Responders to the U.S. Army's 22d Chemical Battalion (TEU), located at Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland.

The Army's multiple system order consists of a base unit with triple, true-diversity antenna arrays, extension link transmitter, and encrypted video security coding. The 22d Chemical Battalion (TEU) has been using the Visual First Responder technology since early 2003 and is expanding its existing systems with this order.

The VFR technology allows First Responders to gather visual data from a 'ground zero' environment and transmit the ultra clear, steady video signal back to a receiver at the mobile, on-scene command site.

"We are very pleased to deliver this vital technology to our armed forces," stated View Systems CEO Gunther Than. "This multi-unit order is getting typical of the orders we have been receiving. We have several more, ready to go, multi-unit orders we will announce over the next several weeks. The technology is now being used by three branches of our armed forces, and we believe there will be additional orders as officials become familiar with the technology and understand its full ability. The nice thing about these orders is that they are ten and twenty times the size of what we used to do."

View Systems, Inc. provides a broad range of products to law enforcement, military, government agencies, educational facilities, hotels, event and sport venues, and commercial businesses. View Systems has an extensive network of distributors, licensees and strategic alliance affiliates. For more information, see www.viewsystems.com.
