Defense Stock News Alert; Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD) $6.8 Million DARPA Award

Point Roberts, WA - November 3, 2011 - Investorideas.com, an investor research portal covering multiple stock sectors including defense and security stocks, reports on Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD) $6.8 Million Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) contract to develop a therapeutic device to reduce the incidence of sepsis, a fatal bloodstream infection that is often the cause of death in combat-injured soldiers.
Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB: AEMD), the pioneer in developing therapeutic filtration devices to address infectious disease and cancer, announced in October that it has been awarded a $6.8 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to develop a therapeutic device to reduce the incidence of sepsis, a fatal bloodstream infection that is often the cause of death in combat-injured soldiers. The contract program will utilize the Aethlon ADAPT™ system as a core technology component underlying an extracorporeal blood purification device that selectively clears multiple sepsis-enabling particles from circulation to promote recovery and prevent sepsis. The resulting device, which is being advanced under DARPA's Dialysis Like Therapeutics (DLT) program, is expected to dramatically decrease the morbidity and mortality of sepsis, thereby saving thousands of lives and billions of dollars in the United States each year. Under the DLT program, Aethlon will also introduce a novel blood pump strategy to reduce or eliminate the systemic administration of anticoagulants normally required during extracorporeal device therapies. Worldwide, more than 18 million cases of sepsis are reported every year, with more than six million resulting in death.
The stock ran to $0.12 following the news in October and is currently trading at $0.08- $0.09.

Energy News: Telkonet (OTCBB: TKOI), Selected to Install Energy Management Platform at Prestigious Military Academy

September 26, 2011 (Investorideas.com Newswire) - Telkonet, Inc. (OTCBB: TKOI.OB), developer of the EcoSmart energy management platform, announced today that a prestigious United States military academy is the latest military institution to deploy its innovative network-enabled energy-saving technology.
As a technology provider for one of the nation's premier energy service companies, Telkonet was awarded a contract for $226,000 to provide the SmartEnergy platform in academy residence halls.
Jason Tienor, Telkonet CEO, said, "We're excited to continue demonstrating the substantial energy savings that Telkonet's SmartEnergy Suite can provide in residence hall applications. This particular deployment displays the flexibility of our field services division as well as the design flexibility of our technology. We're honored to have been selected for this project and look forward to working with the academy."
Telkonet will install a network-enabled SmartEnergy energy management system, including intelligent networked thermostats, occupancy sensors, and door contacts. An integral component of the solution is the online management platform, which will allow the military academy to monitor and control each in-room HVAC system remotely. The SmartEnergy system, which employs Telkonet's patented Recovery TimeTM technology, will optimize energy savings in unoccupied rooms while also ensuring that the thousands of cadets attending the academy stay comfortable when occupying their rooms.
To date, academy administrators have been unable to avoid excessive heating and cooling of unoccupied residence halls. The SmartEnergy system will improve local control and give the property management team the capability to monitor the health and efficiency of the HVAC systems themselves while minimizing energy consumption.
For almost two decades, the energy service company responsible for enabling energy efficiency upgrades at the military academy has collaborated with customers to deliver energy savings through comprehensive and cost-effective efficiency and infrastructure services. Telkonet has had the privilege of serving this ESCO on several other military installations and is participating in project development on several additional opportunities.
"We're pleased to have been selected to perform this upgrade as part of our strategic partnership. We're also confident the cadets will appreciate the comfort improvements and the Academy will find enormous value in the reduced energy and maintenance cost," Tienor said.
Both the energy service company and the military academy have built their foundations on the principles of excellence and integrity, and Telkonet is proud to have been chosen as a vendor partner for this efficiency improvement project.

SEATTLE - September 6, 2011 (Investorideas.com Defense Newswire) - Visualant, Inc.

The Visualant technology was developed by renowned research scientists, Drs. Tom Furness and Brian Schowengerdt.

In conjunction with the stellar work being done in the lab, the Company pursues an aggressive patent strategy to protect its unique intellectual property.
Drs. Furness and Schowengerdt and their laboratory development team brought a generation of experience to the Visualant SPM development process. Dr. Furness is known in many circles as the "Father of Virtual Reality." Dr. Schowengerdt is an internationally renowned leader in the field of color perception.

The patent issued by the United States Office of Patents and Trademarks is US Patent No. 7,996,173 and is entitled "Method, Apparatus and Article to Facilitate Distributed Evaluation of Objects Using Electromagnetic Energy."

Ron Erickson, Visualant Founder and CEO, stated, "We are very pleased to receive our first patent covering our SPM technology. Our science team is world-class.

Investorideas.com - Security Industry News; Visualant (OTCBB:VSUL) Subsidiary, TransTech Systems, Sees Growth In Difficult Economic Environment

Security Industry News; Visualant (OTCBB:VSUL) Subsidiary, TransTech Systems, Sees Growth In Difficult Economic Environment

SEATTLE - September 1, 2011 (Investorideas.com Defense Newswire) - Visualant, Inc. (OTCBB: VSUL), a pioneer provider of industry-leading identification solutions, is pleased to announce today that its subsidiary, TransTech Systems, sees growth in its business in the midst of a difficult economic environment.

TransTech continues to enjoy revenue growth year-to-date on a calendar basis over the same period in 2010. There have been a few special projects which have increased revenues. Meanwhile TransTech continues to strengthen and grow its customer base. The number of resellers with orders in the system during the last few months has remained ahead of last year.

Typically, low employment translates into less need for corporate or contractor ID badges. Yet while the national employment situation has not improved much over last year, some sectors have increased their requirements. In comparison to last year, July and August revenue has been fueled by decent seasonal strength in the School ID market. This segment has been stronger than 2010 for many of TransTech’s resellers. The back order and current bid pipelines remain reasonably strong as of the end of August. If the trend holds for September TransTech will show growth for the 3rd quarter of the calendar year.

Jim Gingo, President of TransTech Systems and an industry leader stated, "We are seeing a distinctive uptick in orders for companies, organizations and government agencies for security and identifications systems and components. We have noticed that many of orders are directed at strengthening existing access control systems and other organizational infrastructure to more strongly tie an individual credential holder to the person holding it. In other words, it no longer seems enough to provide access cards and systems, but rather authentication and authorization have become an integral factor in system efficiencies."

TransTech, acquired by Visualant in June of 2010, is the distribution arm for Visualant Spectral Pattern Matching ("SPM") technology into the security and authentication marketplace. Regarding SPM, Gingo added, "I believe our parent company, Visualant, and its proprietary SPM technology is poised to ultimately provide even more options for definitively linking a person to his or her credential, be it card, paper or anything else."
