Whisper from Wall Street, Stock Stars, Stockpalooza, Penny Pick Now, Penny Invest, and Stock Egg reported earlier on Defentect Group, Inc. (DFTC), and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Defentect Group, Inc. is a developer and provider of rapid response software applications for the threat detection industry. The Company develops software applications that are critical to coordinating rapid responses to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) threats. Founded in 2000, Defentect Group, Inc. has their headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut. The Company trades on the OTCBB.

Formerly known as Splinternet Holdings, Inc., the Company changed their name to Defentect Group, Inc. in March 2010. Their flagship solution, DM3™, is an unattended gamma radiation detection-network. It integrates data from a wide-area pervasive grid of sensors to an incident command center. DM3™ is networked using IP and managed over the Web. When high-energy gamma rays from dirty bomb components interact with the Company's Gammatect™ sensors, DM3's™ proprietary algorithms analyze the data and alert authorities to radiation that may pose a security threat.

Communication features of DM3™ provide the ability to receive and process data over a network from the radiation sensor to the command center as well as to PDAs, cell phones or pagers. The addition of strategically placed Gammatect Plus™ sensors enables DM3™ to identify the isotope causing the radiation. Therefore, this provides control over false positive alarms.

DM3™ software is the management and messaging component that provides administrative and configuration services for the detection system. Devices are configurable, status can undergo monitoring, alert messages can send to a variety of systems, system reports can generate, and multiple user accounts can be set with various privileges. The Defentect DM3™ intelligent threat awareness network can offer unattended detection, alerts, and messaging for a variety of threat-event detection demands including CBRNE.

The Company's Gammatect™ sensor offers gross gamma radiation detection for threat level sources. The design of these sensors is to identify radioactivity of levels that would be used in a terrorist attack. The design of Gammatect™ sensors is for them to undergo deployment in a wide network to provide early warning and situational awareness. Gammatect™ sensors detect gamma radiation above 20 mR/hr in less than one second. They will detect a dirty bomb made with 60 curies of Cesium-137 at a distance of 29.5 meters, or approximately 100 feet.

Gammatect Plus™ is scintillator-based and enables real-time alerts and gamma-radiation isotope identification in an unattended perimeter or portal network. During a high radiological count event, isotope ID and date transmit to a remote command center, triggering an alarm. System administrators can designate alerts to be triggered to PDAs, cell phones, pagers or other mobile clients using the Company's DM3™.

The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 267,524 with a 52-week low/high of $0.02/$0.138.

Micro Identification Technologies Inc. (MMTC) is focused on becoming a global leader in developing, supporting and marketing rapid systems and processes that detect and identify microbial organisms. For several years the company has been working on the development of a breakthrough, laser-based microbial identification technology. This technology has been designed to be extremely fast and easy to use while not relying on conventional chemical or biological processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis.

The system works by measuring scattered light intensity as individual microbes pass through a laser beam. The intensity pattern of the scattered light is a direct consequence of the size, shape and external and internal optical characteristics of the microbe. By measuring scattered light at specific angles, MIT’s system detects and differentiates objects the size of bacteria, protozoa, yeasts and molds.

The company’s technology offers significant advantages over today’s methods of microbial detection, including lower cost, rapid results, easier use and the ability to test for multiple bacteria in one process. The system is statistically based and includes a unique MIT Microbe Library of pre-measured light scattering identifiers - or fingerprints - derived from the measurements of tens of thousands of individual microbes for each species and subspecies to be detected.

MIT’s technology has the potential to revolutionize the $5 billion rapid microbial test market by annually saving thousands of lives and tens of millions of dollars. Since 1998, the industry has had an annual expansion of 9.2 percent - with growth projections for 30 percent annually. MIT is well positioned with its cutting-edge microbial technology as demand continues to soar as a result of major health, safety and homeland security issues. Disclaimer

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) 

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV). Today, National Automation Services, Inc. closed trading at $0.06, down 4.00%, on 72,910 volume with 9 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 17,853 with a 52-week low/high of $0.04/$0.158.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is a public holding company focused on designing, engineering, installing and maintaining automated control systems for such business applications as waste water treatment, water treatment, airport security, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics and nearly all production activities.  

Dominant players in the $500 Billion national and international automation controls market include Siemens, Honeywell, Fisher Controls, Johnson Controls and others. In addition to the multi-nationals, it has been estimated that there could be as many as 300 local and regional firms providing automation control services. In general, these companies have an edge on the larger behemoths because they can better respond to the needs of local business and municipalities.  

Unfortunately, for these smaller companies, they compete in a limited market space, have stunted growth prospects and have no way of monetizing their asset value. NAS aims to capitalize on this condition by acquiring and integrating the strongest local and regional players into a new organization that would allow for the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while keeping the competitive advantages of decentralized management and service.  

Of the 300 local and regional automation companies, 42 meet the company’s acquisition criteria; 11 of which have been targeted for acquisition over the next two years. NAS projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 Million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 Million predicated on meeting its targeted acquisition schedule. With a solid business plan in place, NAS has a firm foundation to generate strong cash flow and increase shareholder value over the long-term. Disclaimer

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is Looking for a Few Good Companies

National Automation Services could be satisfied to simply continue providing world-class process automation solutions to its customers in the western U.S. However, the company has made no secret of its higher ambitions. It has stated clear intentions to expand into other markets in the continental U.S., reducing its concentration in municipal water management and wastewater treatment. Specifically, they want to acquire select small to medium sized privately-held industrial application automation companies, becoming something of a central management hub for these local and regionally focused operations.

What kind of acquisition targets are they going after?

• Established business with a proven operating track record – They look for strong financial performance, positive operating results, a good backlog of contracts, preferably with a potential for positive operating cash flow. They also look at the talent within the management team and staff.
• Opportunity for growth of the industrial base – They want a business with an established base of industrial end users that will represent a diversification for NAS, allowing for continued expansion outside of the water treatment and wastewater areas.
• Opportunity for geographical expansion – They seek businesses with established activity in a local metropolitan market where NAS has no current presence, but which are near an NAS existing regional footprint. It helps if the target is in a position to obtain water treatment and wastewater opportunities, an NAS strength, plus other industrial projects.

However, the above criteria are not intended to be exhaustive, and there may be other dominating factors that move a decision for or against acquisition, including, of course, the negotiated price. The purchase price involved in any acquisition will usually be paid in the form of common stock issued to the owners of the target company. But cash, from cash-on-hand or through credit resources, may also be part of future agreements.
