VIGILAIR Systems, Inc. Earns DHS 'Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology' Designation

| From

WASHINGTON, DC - May 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has designated the VIGILAIR(R) Biodefense System as a QATT (Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology), in accordance with the SAFETY Act of 2002.

VIGILAIR(R) technology is implemented inside a building's Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system to significantly reduce or eliminate the effects of a bioterrorism attack such as the targeted release of anthrax or smallpox. VIGILAIR(R) earned the Designation after months of rigorous review by a panel of experts chosen by the DHS.

Designations are granted under the SAFETY Act (Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies Act) of 2002. Designation means that customers of VIGILAIR Systems, Inc. receive liability protection in the event of a terrorist attack. Congress passed the SAFETY Act to assist in removing some of the hurdles for implementation of homeland security technology.

VIGILAIR(R) is a dual-use technology because while it protects against attack, it continuously improves indoor air quality by capturing and removing airborne pollutants such as mold, bacteria and viruses. VIGILAIR(R) Biodefense Systems employ high efficiency filtration, Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) and other proprietary technologies to provide predictable control of the indoor environment.

Based in North Tonawanda, NY, VIGILAIR Systems, Inc. serves customers throughout the world with installations in the US, Canada, Mexico and Asia. VIGILAIR Systems was formerly known as FP Technologies.
