Era Corporation Receives Frost & Sullivan ADS-B Technology Leadership Award

ALEXANDRIA, VA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 3, 2007 -- Era Corporation has received the 2007 North American ADS-B Technology Leadership of the Year Award from Frost & Sullivan, a world leader in new market research and global growth consulting. Era received the number one industry ranking from Frost & Sullivan's industry analysts who compared market participants and measured performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research in order to identify best practices in the industry.

According to Frost and Sullivan, Era's MSS surveillance technology serves as the perfect link to the future by seamlessly integrating ADS-B and multilateration technologies, allowing for complete and total surveillance both today and in the future. In evaluating the competitors, Frost & Sullivan tracked all emerging technologies and ongoing R&D projects within the industry. These projects were then compared according to customer demands, acceptance rates, significance in the industry and estimated time to market with a large focus placed on product innovation.

Several Era "firsts" were outlined in the research, including Era's deployment of the world's first multilateration surface surveillance system in Prague. "Additional systems have been added in the region, including the world's first wide area multilateration system that was operationally certified for three nautical mile approach certification," stated Frost & Sullivan.

"We are extremely honored to receive this award from a company with such a strong reputation for thought leadership and industry knowledge," said Dave Ellison, Era's President and CEO. "Most importantly, this award underscores the confidence placed in our company by our customers and our industry partners."
