eCom: NASA Project to Focus on Security

Press Release From:, Inc.
Posted: Monday, September 24, 2001

Today R. C. Wilson, President of, Inc. , announced that the company's upcoming demonstration of Z Box(TM) technology at NASA's Kennedy Space Center will focus on the protection of space shuttle program assets. Because of heightened security concerns throughout the country, the company is striving to have the project completed in time for the launch vehicle processing of the December 2nd shuttle launch.

eCom previously released news of its discussions with NASA officials concerning use of the Z Box(TM) for pad perimeter surveillance and nondestructive failure analysis. It has now been decided that this first application of the Z Box(TM), the product of eCom's Zyndecom joint venture, will address security issues in general and pad perimeter surveillance in particular.

``Obviously it is to our company's advantage to be able to demonstrate the capabilities of our product line within the high profile environment of the space program,'' said Wilson. ``However, it will be much more rewarding if we can contribute to our nation's security at the same time.''

Following the catastrophic events of September 11, the company is testing security applications for the Z Box(TM), DryIce(TM) and Syndeos(TM) technologies. Syndeos(TM) software, which synchronizes independently- developed software and hardware systems, DryIce(TM) software, with its unique high-compression and encoding capabilities, and the Z Box(TM), which combines both technologies, can all be used to enhance homeland security. Development of these ideas will inevitably lead to the marketing of numerous defense-oriented products.

In separate news, DryIce(TM) software caught the attention of the recent Intelligent Processing and Manufacturing of Materials 3rd International Conference. The Conference press release noted that eCom had announced that DryIce(TM) software had produced a breakthrough in still image compression while adding document encoding for security purposes.
