JMAR Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: JMAR), San Diego, CA, a leading innovator in the development and commercialization of sensing systems for the detection of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) materials, today announced a media awareness initiative for JMAR's award-winning, laser-based BioSentry®, which is the only commercialized, EPA tested, online system for real-time detection of pathogens in water.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 13, 2009 -- U.S. water distribution systems are potential terrorist targets due to the critical need for clean water in all sectors of society. A terrorist attack that contaminates a public or private municipal water system will cause devastating economic and public health consequences. With the most recent warnings of bio-attack threats, JMAR is alerting the public, our government officials, and the incoming Obama Administration about the benefits of using BioSentry®. As a high tech counter to bioterrorism, BioSentry® can help prevent economic and political disruption, widespread sickness, and fatalities from contaminated water that goes undetected until it is too late.
As part of this initiative, JMAR representatives are attending a conference in Washington, D.C., which specifically addresses "Shaping the Obama Administration's Counterterrorism Strategy," at the CATO Institute on January 12-13, 2009. Later this week, on January 15, 2009, CNBC will be airing a prime-time BioSentry® video news release. The video is expected to reach 4,000,000 viewers, and will also be distributed to 190 cable stations nationwide through the Independent News Network.
"I have the utmost confidence that this initiative will be successful in highlighting the nature of the threat and the importance of taking action now to protect the public from a bioterrorist attack, " said JMAR's Chief Executive Officer, C. Neil Beer, Ph.D. "We need to secure our water supplies - BioSentry® provides the continuous monitoring necessary for protection against contamination, intentional or otherwise."
Frost & Sullivan recognized BioSentry® as the leading innovative approach to water quality monitoring and selected JMAR for their 2008 Biological Detection Product of the Year Award.
