PSI-TEC Files Patents Necessary to Launch Next-Generation Telecom and Homeland Security Technologies

    WILMINGTON, Del., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PSI-TEC Corporation
 (, a wholly owned subsidiary of PSI-TEC Holdings,
 Inc. (Pink Sheets:   PTHO), announced today the filing of two additional
 patents, completing its near-term patent portfolio for next-generation
 broadband and satellite reconnaissance (i.e. homeland security)
 telecommunication technologies.  These two patents embody groundbreaking
 technologies necessary for internally stabilizing previously patented high-
 speed telecommunication materials ("electro-optic plastics").
     Calculations on PSI-TEC's novel electro-optic plastic designs,
 independently performed at NAVAIR (Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division;
 China Lake, CA) government laboratories, suggest that PSI-TEC's materials will
 perform two and a half (2.5) to three and three-tenths (3.3) times more
 efficiently than current high-performance electro-optic plastics.  Subsequent
 review by top scientists and engineers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
 (AFRL; Dayton, OH) resulted in the conclusion that, "PSI-TEC's molecular
 designs show promise of a five to ten times improvement over existing
 commercial polymeric architectures."
     The implementation of telecommunication performance improvements of this
 magnitude is considered to be revolutionary by industry standards.  Such
 technologies are vital for the success of future high-end military
 reconnaissance (homeland security) technologies such as those currently being
 recommended in the development of the military's next-generation Internet
 (NY Times, 11/13/04, "Pentagon Envisioning a Costly Internet for War;" online

     "Next-generation military Internet, known as the Global Information Grid
 or GIG, is proposed to afford soldiers a real-time 'bird's-eye view' of the
 battlefield providing all U.S. commanders and troops a moving picture of all
 foreign enemies and threats," said Fred Goetz, President and CEO of PSI-TEC.
 "The development of the GIG presently faces several 'technological hurdles,'
 many of which we at PSI-TEC believe may be effectively resolved through the
 use of our newly patented technologies."
     The key to producing commercial and military quality electro-optic
 plastics lies almost entirely in the production of environmentally stable
 materials.  "Today's plastics are not inherently unstable entities," Goetz
 explained.  "When they were first widely introduced in the 1950s, they were of
 lesser quality and would often melt after prolonged exposure to sunlight.
 But, today they are far more resilient and durable, and significantly cheaper,
 than glass and many metals.  On a fundamental level, we are merely proposing
 the application of these same well-known technologies to the production of our
 next-generation electro-optic plastics."  PSI-TEC's recent patents propose a
 unique and eloquent molecular-level engineering strategy (i.e.,
 nanotechnology) for the natural union of these two aspects of material
     Government statements by NAVAIR and AFRL officers were made in conjunction
 with an NSF (National Science Foundation) proposal after review of PSI-TEC's
 technology during PSI-TEC's prior involvement in DARPA's (Defense Advanced
 Research Projects Agency) MORPH (Molecular Photonics) program.  MORPH is a
 subdivision of DARPA's C2OI (Chip-to-chip Optical Interconnect) project.
     About PSI-TEC
     PSI-TEC Corporation is a developmental stage company that engineers
 next-generation electro-optic (EO) plastics for future applications vital to
 modern commerce, homeland security, and medical technology.  PSI-TEC's
 proprietary electro-optic plastics are produced at the molecular level for
 superior performance, stability and cost-efficiency and are expected to
 replace more expensive, lower-performance materials used in fiber-optic
 ground, wireless and satellite communication networks.
