Sense Holdings Files New Patent for MEMS-Based Handheld Explosives Detection Technology

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 18, 2005--Sense Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:SEHO) (FWB:OUP), a developer of next-generation biometric and explosive detection security technologies for government and commercial security markets, today announced its landmark filing of a new patent related to an advanced handheld explosives detection technology.

"This landmark filing brings to twelve the total number of exclusive worldwide patents and licenses Sense now has pending and issued, and substantially reinforces the monetization potential of our valuable intellectual property assets," said CEO Dore Perler.

The new patent relates to advanced explosives sensor technology based on the cutting-edge science of Micro Electro-Mechanical Sensors (MEMS). These microstructures also serve as a technology base upon which the Company is currently co-developing a handheld, explosives detection device with the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which is part of the U.S. Department of Energy.

"The main advantages of Sense's proprietary explosives detection technology include very low cost, extremely high sensitivity and real-time operation," Mr. Perler said.

Essentially, MEMS structures are fabricated in a very similar fashion to mass-produced electronic integrated circuits, and can be developed as sensors to detect a range of substances, including explosives, chemical, biological and narcotic. These microstructures are commercially manufactured for a number of current applications, ranging from atomic force microscopes to deceleration sensors for automotive airbag deployment systems.

Sense also plans to eventually deploy a product line of innovative handheld detectors with varying substance-sensing capabilities to governments, airports, and law enforcement agencies, as well as to private companies, stadiums, coliseums and many other possible targets in the United States and around the world. A first-generation handheld explosives detector is expected to be ready for marketing by mid-2006.
