15 Section 3: The Business Opportunity The venture capitalist firm should be interested in investing in the TDT Solution because of the exponential market opportunity for flood prevention services.TDT Solutions, Inc. has a patent-pending, immediately deployable 2-ft. and 4-ft. tall flood wall product that is currently being brought to market. Research and development of the 6-ft., 8-ft. tall flood walls, and retrofit to existing concrete levees are ongoing, and scheduled to be brought to market in FY’09/FY’10.Target markets for our products and services are :Individual communities (i.e. Branson, MO, Marietta, OH, San Diego, CA)Local government (i.e. City of Annapolis, MD, Spencer, IN)State government (i.e. State of Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency)Federal government agencies (i.e. DHS/FEMA)Assist TDT Solutions, Inc. with market branding and positioning the TDT Solution to introduce to similar target market sectors.Realize the lack of creditable competitors and attainable benchmark for the venture capitalist success by capitalizing on an untapped market.Changes in the flood prevention market are imminent and everyone is seeking a way to protect against flooding without sacrificing budgets, time, construction costs, and project management. The TDT Solution modified levee system is a comprehensive solution. The TDT Solution is a proactive flood mitigation and prevention solution that will also improve the aesthetic value of waterfront properties.
16 Section 3: The Business Opportunity Cont’d TDT Solutions, Inc. is a developer of modified levee systems.The Technology:The TDT Solution is a permanent solution to a temporary flood problem utilizing a portable and immediately deployable flood wall, “That Dam Thing™” (TDT).TDT is available in 2-ft., 4-ft., 6-ft., 8-ft. tall sections.In-house engineers have successfully tested and proved the 2-ft. and 4-ft. tall flood walls. Venture Capital funding will assist with the production of the 2-ft. and 4-tall flood walls. Venture Capital funds will also assist with the research and development of the 6-ft., 8-ft. tall walls, and the modified levee system.The System:The combination of the TDT Solution modified levee system and the TDT flood wall accomplishes two major goals.The hybrid solution protects against flood disasters while adding value to the community and improving the aesthetics of waterfront properties.The hybrid solution also provides safety to waterfront properties by utilizing the user-friendly TDT flood wall product without sacrificing the panoramic view and easy access to the waterfront.

19 Section 4: Sales and Marketing Cont’d Market Penetration Tactics: Sell beauty and protectionThe TDT Solution competes with earthen and concrete levees and the TDT Solution provides protection with beautification, without changing historical ambienceOur company will offer customers varying development options that will transform the clear deployment area for the TDT flood wall into an elegant and illuminated bike-walk / park like setting. The modified levee’s overall setting will be equipped with exercise equipment, playground equipment, landscaping, picnic areas, lights, and art work. This modified levee system will contain 70-80% of the flooding activity. The remaining 20-30% will be contained by implementing the immediately deployable “That Dam Thing™” flood wall. In addition to the health and wellness benefits of the bike-walk / park, the park will also be an area where residents can relax and enjoy themselves through the beauty of the waterfront and park combination. The retrofit of existing communities where the modified levee cannot be installed will minimize construction and disruption of the retrofitted community by using the existing draining schematics and existing waterfront streets and/or parking lots as the deployment area.With the assistance of the Venture Capitalist, our company will also begin advertising to promote the use and effectiveness of our flood protection solution.Data Points used to measure success:Establish a proof of concept and obtain media coverage before September 2009.After completion of proof of concept field demonstration begin to send out video and press releases on the success of an “outside” testing agency.Close on first sale by December 2009.

21 Section 5: Engineering and R&D What differentiates “That Dam Thing™” flood wall from other flood fighting structures?“That Dam Thing™” flood wall was engineered to use the weight of the water as the integral mechanism of the flood wall. The flow of water onto the vinyl foot print creates the weight needed to secure TDT to the ground. The rear wall angular gusset protects the airbladder from debris.TDT is made of military grade, UV-protected; polyester reinforced scrim, bacteria static, 18 mil. recyclable PVC vinyl. (The 6-ft. and 8-ft. tall flood walls will be constructed from 24 mil. material).The double interlocking sealed zipper technology provides a water-tight hinge between each section.The hinge joint provides TDT the flexibility needed in order to adapt to changing deployment configurations. The ability to interconnect different height walls compensates for differing topographies and helps facilitate our immediate deployment method.
22 Section 5: Engineering and R&D Developmental Status:“That Dam Thing™” 2-ft. and 4-ft. tall flood walls have been successfully tested at our facility in Baltimore, MD.80% of the floods in the US are 3-ft or less“That Dam Thing™” flood wall is currently patent-pending.TDT Solutions, Inc. is currently searching for an accredited program or flood prone community that is willing and technically/financially capable of working with us to construct an outdoor testing facility for the testing and accreditation of our modified levee system.US Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center is not equipped to properly test all advantages of the TDT Solution and the “That Dam Thing™” flood wall, i.e.: no fixed fortifications, no un-even topography, no trees, lighting/pumping standards.Testing of the “That Dam Thing™” 6-ft. tall flood wall is currently entering its developmental phases.Technical Team’s Background:50 years combined experience of mechanical and civil engineering3 years design and manufacturing experience of portable flood wallsPatent application experienceMr. Bernard Salemie is a successful patent recipient of the USA on his Heat-Differential Motor granted in 1999
23 Section 6: Operations/Manufacturing Manufacturing Strategy:Manufacturing of the TDT flood wall for the TDT Solution modified levee and retrofit system is in the US.Reason: Create American jobs, promote economic stimulus, diversify the industrial market place of Baltimore City, and remain true to a “Made in America” productQuality Assurance:Every product is tested for manufacturer’s defects before it leaves the warehouse.Testing involves: Rear wall air bag sustainability, welds and joints are successful, sections are appropriate in length, light standards and pumps are engineered per specifications, and modified levee system is constructed per design.
24 Section 6: Operations/Manufacturing Cont’d Distribution Strategy:The TDT Solution modified levee and retro fit system will be designed, engineered, and constructed based on the water level rise study.Partial distribution of the items above will be performed by third party contractors and strategically managed by TDT Solutions, Inc. "That Dam Thing™" will be delivered as a turn-key package in a covered TDT trailer. This trailer serves as the shipping, storage, and deployment vessel. There are two sizes of trailers available. 1.) A small trailer, which is single-axle and is 6-ft. X 8-ft. 2.) A large tandem-axle trailer, which is 6-ft X 12-ft. A SUV or small truck can tow either trailer to the area of deployment.
