Lattice Awarded Air Force Contract to Detect Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

PENNSAUKEN, NJ--(Marketwire - January 25, 2011) -  Lattice Incorporated (OTCBB: LTTC), a provider of advanced technological solutions to key government agencies and enterprise customers, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Lattice Government Services, has been awarded a prime contract with the United States Air Force to develop a system for detecting improvised explosive devices (IEDs).

Under the agreement, Lattice will develop a software/hardware interface to fuse data from heterogeneous sensors and a detection engine. Various data will be combined to enhance situational awareness and to develop countermeasures to defeat IEDs.

The remote controlled improvised explosive device (RCIED) has become a major weapon against coalition troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Given its high success and effectiveness against coalition forces as well as its low cost and ease of use, military experts and others believe this will be an indefinite ongoing threat to U.S. forces.

Lattice CEO Paul Burgess said, "Up to 40% of all U.S. and coalition deaths in both Iraq and Afghanistan have been associated with improvised explosive devices. In addition, the Department of Homeland Security reports that more than 600 IED incidents occur worldwide each month outside of these regions, including within the U.S."

"We look forward to supporting the Air Force in its continued efforts to better detect and defeat the ongoing threat that IEDs pose to our troops and our coalition partners. This inaugural contract with the United States Air Force furthers Lattice's commitment to help prepare and modernize our troops for both current and next-generation challenges," Burgess said.
