Commenting on third quarter results, Dr. Carl Kukkonen, CEO of VIASPACE said, "VIASPACE Security revenues are down on lower L3 Communications' revenues due to the near completion of Phase II software development tasks in support of their contract with the Department of Homeland Security.  While VIASPACE Security awaits potential future awards from L3, resources have been shifted to start up the Detection Monitoring Technologies (DMT) radar platform software and hardware sales from its recently announced new teaming agreement. The Company anticipates sales on those new efforts within the next two quarters. Although VIASPACE Energy did not record sales of its VIASENSOR Humidity Sensor in the third quarter, we have received orders and expect revenue on this product line in the fourth quarter.  Government contract revenues were lower during this quarter as the contracts for several Phase I and Phase II efforts have ended.  We anticipate being awarded a Phase II contract from the US Army by years' end."
