ISCO International Announces New Chairman of the Board and Updates Fully Digital Platform

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL--(Marketwire - June 12, 2007) - ISCO International, Inc. (AMEX: ISO), a leading supplier of RF-conditioning and interference-control solutions for the wireless telecommunications industry, announced that Ralph Pini has been elected Chairman of the Board of Directors. The Company also provided an update on its fully digital adaptive interference management platform.

On June 8, 2007, at a meeting of the Company's Board of Directors following the annual shareholders' meeting, the Board of Directors unanimously elected Ralph Pini, director since 2004, as Chairman of the Board. Jim Fuentes, the most recent Chairman, remains a director and has increased his service to the Company by becoming the Chairman of the Compensation Committee and joining the Audit Committee, in the positions vacated by Tom Powers' retirement.

John Thode, CEO of ISCO, updated shareholders on the status and purpose of the fully digital adaptive interference management platform at the June 8, 2007 annual shareholders' meeting. Following recent commentary in this space, Mr. Thode said, "By now many have seen a recent announcement by another entity about managing interference between accessories on a portable device. Many have asked about our response to this news. In summary, ISCO's adaptive interference management solutions are designed to detect and adaptively resolve more pervasive and fundamental problems involving spectral issues, competitive system interference and system interoperability." He added, "We don't believe that our competitive or intellectual property position has been impacted by this recent announcement. On the contrary, this announcement is yet another external point of validation of our strategy and demonstrates that there is a large and evolving market need. We look forward to delivery our first fully digital adaptive interference management product commercially later this year, and plan to leverage that platform shortly thereafter to address a number of horizontal applications."
