Lattice Awarded Homeland Security Contract for Smuggled Currency Detector

PENNSAUKEN, NJ--(Marketwire - October 25, 2010) - 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, Inc. has been awarded a prime contract by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop a demonstrable prototype device able to search for and identify bulk quantities of currency.

To address the challenges of bulk currency detection, Lattice Government Services has teamed with the University of Washington to research, design and develop a special purpose concealed sensor platform specifically targeted to identifying large quantities of U.S. and Canadian concealed currency as well as Euros.

Lattice CEO Paul Burgess said, "In recent years, the smuggling of bulk currency has become a preferred method for drug dealers and other criminals to move illicit proceeds across our borders. In 2001, Congress criminalized the act of smuggling large amounts of cash as part of the USA Patriot Act.

"We look forward to supporting the Department of Homeland Security, in cooperation with Customs and Border Protection, in its continued efforts to stop bulk currency smuggling. To date more than 1,100 individuals have been arrested and over $400 million seized in connection with cross border currency smuggling. This inaugural contract with DHS furthers Lattice's commitment to help our government secure America's infrastructure," Burgess said.
