The end user is a repeat customer for DSIT's underwater security systems, who has already purchased both DSIT's AquaShield (TM) Diver Detection (DDS) systems and PointShield (TM) PDDS
DSIT's state of the art PointShield (TM) PDDS
was selected based on its operational parameters including detection and classification ranges, system size and portability, fully automatic operation and system robustness.

Investors are cautioned that statements in this press release, including statements relating to the commercial prospects of AI-700 and HDDS and PDDS
technologies generally, the clinical outcome and timing of the Phase 3 trials for AI-700, the number of patients needed to complete the Phase 3 trials, the timing of the reports from the independent data monitoring board, the timing of data release, the timing of the AI-700 NDA (New Drug Application) filing in the U.
We believe these patents are important additions to our PDDS
portfolio because corticosteroids, a leading class of drugs for the treatment of asthma, are hydrophobic and must be taken multiple times per day and therefore could benefit from sustained release.
In this study, the efficiency of a clinical version of Aerogen's PDDS
was assessed for delivery of aerosolized amikacin, an aminoglycoside antibiotic, to the lungs of ventilated patients.
