NORWALK, Conn. , Feb. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Defentect Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: DFTC), a developer and provider of immediate response and intelligent messaging software solutions, issued today its reaction to the recent news concerning intelligence released by WikiLeaks that the international terrorist network al-Qaeda , is aggressively working to secure the materials and individuals necessary to build a radioactive “dirty bomb.”
Defentect Group has long been aware of the reality that the United States will once again come under attack by radical terrorist groups, and the Company’s ongoing mission is to develop the most advanced CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive) management, monitoring and messaging software platform. The result is DM3, Defentect ‘s proprietary IP-based platform that enables a real-time response the identification of radiological material. DM3 is the only sensor-agnostic solution on the market, which means it is compatible with any radiation detection hardware that is available today. When a threat is detected by a sensor, DM3 immediately processes the information and transmits the details to key personnel via SMS messaging so that action can be taken to prevent the potential event from occurring.
The diplomatic documents released by WikiLeaks last week confirm what Defentect has been working to prevent: weapons-grade nuclear, chemical and biological materials are being smuggled across Europe , Africa and the Middle East and are in the hands of people who “have the technical competence to manufacture an explosive device” that has the potential to kill thousands and render effected areas unlivable for years. Just last year, President Obama was quoted as saying that nuclear terrorism is “the single biggest threat” to international security, and the WikiLeaks cables validate his concern.
“At Defentect, we make it our business to think about what nobody else wants to: what would happen in the event of a nuclear attack on US soil,” stated James Ackerly , CEO of Defentect . “The ramifications of inadequate prevention of such an attack are unfathomable, which is why we are so committed to the highest level of sophistication when it comes to our threat detection solution as well as our aggressive business plan. While the documents that were just made public by WikiLeaks are frightening, they are very real and have created a renewed sense of urgency to protect our homeland,” Ackerly went on to say.
