SatMAX Readies 2010 Hurricane Preparedness Program

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - April 6, 2010) -  SatMAX Corporation (PINKSHEETS: SATM), a leading global provider of wireless, non-line-of-sight satellite communications products and services, announced the kick-off of its 2010 hurricane awareness marketing push, targeting first responders and emergency preparedness centers throughout the Gulf Coast region. The proprietary, patented SatMAX® satellite communications system offers an affordable, dependable solution to help ensure constant satellite telephone communication for disaster recovery personnel in the event that land-based communications are compromised.

The SatMAX® satellite communications extender is aimed at the $46 billion worldwide market for satellite ground equipment. The Satellite Industry Association reported in its 2009 State of the Industry Report that the previous year's overall revenue in the ground equipment sector grew by 34%, making it the fastest-growing satellite industry segment (www.sia.org). The SatMAX® system uniquely addresses a need for which there is no other solution, indoor wireless use of Iridium-based voice and data communication devices.

"SatMAX is committed to supporting the global emergency response community. With a light hurricane season last year, we want to raise the awareness of first responders to the urgent need for emergency systems that aren't dependent on traditional telecommunication connections such as landlines or cellular systems," said Ken Carlsen, Director of Technology for SatMAX. "Our SatMAX® products address these problems and do so in non-line-of-sight environments."
