Neptune EBD1

Homeland Security Group International, Inc. announced today that its newest product, Neptune EBD1, has been re-designed to extend the breathing time to fifty-five minutes.

The new breathing device measures approximately 13 inches long, 4 1/2 inches wide with a weight of just less than five (5) pounds. The new version, which has not been officially named, will supply 55 to 60 minutes of positive, 2-stage regulated airflow depending on stress level.

Like its predecessor, the Neptune EBD1, this new device utilizes factory-sealed air cylinders making it immediately ready for use even after prolonged storage. Just one hand is required to start the device. It is small and lightweight and currently comes with an optional holster pouch. Only a short orientation is required prior to use. The device is ideal for aircrew members, workers in confined spaces (such as mines), firefighters, law enforcement, divers, hazmat crews, etc.

"We have been working closely with the inventor to get this offering to the market quickly due to market interest. We feel this newest generation will revolutionize the diving industry," commented Powers. "Imagine a 5 pound air bottle that allows for 55 minutes of breathing time. Paperwork for new patents is near completion. We previewed the Neptune EBD1 at Strong Angel III Integrated Disaster Response Demonstration in August. Since that date we have aggressively targeted Fire Departments, Emergency First Responders, Military and Law Enforcement personnel. Everyone we have shown this device immediately wants more information. This new version was borne out of feedback from military, civilian and law enforcement divers. These trained military and civilian professional divers are telling us this is the greatest thing that the diving industry has seen in a long time," concluded Powers.

The company is also working with their joint venture partner Recon Mountaineer LLC to design a new Buoyancy Compensating (BC) vest that will incorporate the EBD. EBD1 models are available for immediate shipping. HMSG expects to have the new version available for sale by mid November.
