The first four months of fiscal 2008 saw the following activities, including new and follow on sales for the applications noted below:

Situational Awareness/Security Market

- A military account recently selected IMC's technology. They plan to use IMC's unique imagery characteristics to better understand the implications of certain battlefield scenarios and for mapping and terrain analysis. This visual intelligence has not been possible until the advent and implementation of our technology to address the complexities of the scenarios involved.

- Southern Imaging Inc., a distributor owned by Costar Video Systems, LLC placed an initial order for over 450 mobile digital video recorder systems for law their enforcement clients.

Geospatial/Mapping Market

- Applications in the Geospatial/Mapping market continue to expand with follow on equipment sales to a major North American railway, which enables this customer to use GeoImmersive™ Imagery to examine track conditions, and for licensing to third parties who access the customer's rights of way. By using GeoImmersive imagery the railway and third parties can better manage how access to rights of way can be most effective for all.
