S. Commercial Rotor-Wing Industry Marketing Agreement (the "Definitive Agreement") granting three-year exclusive domestic marketing rights for the commercial helicopter maintenance industry. The LOI with Houston-based AvStar Aviation Group, Inc., outlines the general terms and conditions of the Definitive Agreement. AvStar has also agreed to display SatMAX® in is booth at the 52nd Annual Aircraft Electronics Association International Convention & Trade Show, held next month in Orlando.

Last month, SatMAX and AvStar entered into a reseller agreement. In this new Definitive Agreement, AvStar obtains exclusive U. S. marketing rights to the commercial helicopter maintenance industry for SatMAX® satellite communications repeaters and testing equipment. When the Definitive Agreement is executed, AvStar will commit to purchase 10 rack mount SatMAX® repeaters immediately and 10 more units each quarter. The agreement is estimated to be worth more than $4 million. The LOI is subject to final documentation and the approval of both corporate boards of directors.

Don Bresina, CEO of SatMAX, commented, "We are extremely excited about this early success of our recently announced marketing agreement with AvStar. As the utility and versatility of SatMAX® equipment is proven in the helicopter market, we believe that the popularity of our equipment will gain traction in new markets in the very near future. This agreement with AvStar falls within our strategy to become a leading worldwide provider of non-line-of-sight satellite communications solutions."

Mr. Bresina concluded, "We are formulating marketing strategies with marketing professionals in other industries. We believe these marketing programs will quickly drive SatMAX to a new level. The economic profits for us could be tremendous for years to come, considering the rapid worldwide growth of the satellite communications."

Wireless satellite telephone communications require a direct line of sight to the sky to create a link between the handheld satellite phone and the orbiting satellite. This communication link is interrupted when a sat-phone user steps indoors. SatMAX® repeater technology enables satellite communications users to quickly and easily make fully wireless voice and data communications from any non-line-of-sight location. Historically limited by the requirement for satellite phones to have line-of-sight access to orbiting satellites, with SatMAX® users now have the ability to access dependable and uninterrupted wireless satellite communications.
