Irving, TX, United States, 2005/06/01 - Sniffex, Inc. (OTC.PK: SNFX), announced today results from field tests of Sniffex, its explosives detection device, performed by the Energetic Materials Research and Testing Center (EMRTC), an internationally known explosives test center..
The Company stated that several of the tests showed that Sniffex was able to detect nitro-based explosives from behind walls and inside cars from distances of 10 to 30 feet. In addition, Sniffex was able to detect and localize explosives in open terrain, even when hidden under rocks. The findings also showed that Sniffex was effective even with relatively small amounts (l lb) of explosives, and was successful with a variety of explosive types including TNT, C-4 and artillery shells. Excerpts from the report are available on the Company's website.
EMRTC's facilities are used by numerous US government agencies including the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. It is also used by other countries around the world for training and explosives testing purposes and is considered one of the best testing facilities in the world.
"This is our first generation product and this report, as well as other supporting tests, demonstrate that Sniffex is a highly capable tool in the war on terror," stated Paul Johnson, President of Sniffex, Inc. "The results were impressive, but they also showed that we have work ahead of us to continue to make the product easier to use and more effective. With our planned research and development team, we expect to be able to announce many improvements over the next few years that will keep Sniffex at the forefront of explosives detection technology."
In addition to the announcement of test results at EMRTC, the company stated that tests of Sniffex have been successfully completed in other countries as well and those countries have shown interest in acquiring Sniffex for military and civilian uses.
