SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NanoSensors, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: NNSR.OB), a company that develops and markets nanotechnology sensors, announces today its vision for the Company in 2006, as well as their strategy to become a major player in the one of the fastest growing industries in the world.

NanoSensors, Inc. plans to develop, manufacture and market sensors integrated into platforms to create new paradigms for secure and safe military, homeland and commercial venues. The Company's sensors will have the ability to enhance a person's understanding of the hazards in his environment.

The Company believes that the demand for sensors will grow rapidly over the next few years and expects that billions of dollars of governmental (from the Department of Homeland Security and Foreign Governments) and private sector expenditures will increase demand for security products and services.

NanoSensors' next generation of sensor products will be based on porous silicon and carbon nano-tube technology. These sensors will be able to detect explosives, chemicals and biological agents at very low concentrations.

Porous Silicon

NanoSensors' research indicates that sensors based on porous silicon will offer enhanced sensitivity, reduced power demands and lower cost. The porous silicon based sensors can be integrated into electronic equipment and used to build sensing arrays, because they are based on silicon wafers, manufactured using integrated circuit production techniques and operate at room temperature using low voltages. These sensing arrays are analogous to the manner in which cellular phone networks and their towers are set up, except that NanoSensors' sensing arrays will protect certain defined geographical areas.
