MSGI Provides Science & Technology Update to Investors

Mountain View, CA | Posted on March 1st, 2011

Chemical Sensing

As part of MSGI Space Act Agreements with NASA, a revolutionary handheld diagnostic device has been developed with medical and environmental testing applications. This research has been conducted with support from the US Dept of Homeland Security, US Department of Defense and MSGI using breakthroughs in nanotechnology and chemical sensing. The new device plugs directly into an iPhone and can collect and analyze chemical data in real time. The device senses chemicals in the air using a "sample jet" and a multi-channel silicon-based sensing chip with a variety of nanomaterials. The device consists of 256 nanosensors on the chip and uses a pattern recognition algorithm to identify the "finger print" of the analyte of interest. The sensing device effectively learns the response pattern from changes in resistance correlated to concentration levels of certain target chemicals and gases.

Within the medical diagnostic field, the sensor will extract and test breath for a variety of biomarkers indicating various stages of a life threatening disease. The first such chemical sensor will be used as a non-invasive bloodless test for Diabetes, which has become the number one cause of death in many nations. Environmental diagnostic applications include testing the air in a burning building for levels of carbon monoxide and other dangerous or toxic gases, including attempts of bio-terrorism.

Solar Energy

As part of MSGI Space Act Agreements with NASA, scientists have developed an improved solar cell array. The research has been based on building nanotube pillar arrays on top of metal substrates. Scientists have been growing carbon nanotubes for the light trapping structure which will minimize reflected light. The nanostructures increased surface to volume ratio improves the light trapping effect. Computational models have helped optimize the shape of the light trapping structures shown below, which will significantly improve the conversion efficiency of the photovoltaic systems using the technology. The new prototypes have been dubbed "3D Solar Cells." Simply put, by capturing more sunlight you improve efficiency and produce more electricity.

Half of America's electricity is produced by coal-fired power plants. According to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy, the United States has the largest coal reserves in the world. Based on the current rate of consumption, our coal reserves will last for another 160 years, thus making renewable energy vital to our energy needs for the future. Additional benefits of Solar Energy include reducing our significant dependency on foreign oil as well as our carbon footprint.

Jeremy Barbera, CEO of MSGI Technology Solutions, commented, "Alongside our NASA partners, we have been making great technological strides in the areas of chemical sensing and solar energy. Our innovative technology has the ability to improve many facets of society including homeland security, environmental testing, diagnostic testing, energy conservation and much more. We are pleased to provide this update to our shareholders and look forward to updating again in the near future."
