MATECH and Northrop Grumman Make Significant Impact at the 2009 International Bridge Conference

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2009) - MATECH Corp. (OTCBB: MTCH) ( is pleased to announce that the Company and Northrop Grumman jointly presented at the International Bridge Conference in Pittsburgh, PA.

Northrop Grumman Corporation is a leading global provider of innovative systems, products, and solutions in aerospace, electronics, information systems, shipbuilding and technical services to government and commercial customers worldwide. Net annual sales for FY 2008 totaled approximately $33.9 Billion.

The joint presentation, highly regarded by the attendees, focused on how Northrop Grumman and MATECH are jointly implementing the new Northrop Grumman Sensor Information Systems (SIS) program for bridges. Northrop's SIS integrates inspection systems with various sensor systems, such as security and environmental. SIS will provide integral information for bridge infrastructure owners.

A key component of Northrop's SIS could be MATECH's Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor (EFS) system, and its use in prioritizing fatigue crack repairs and verifying retrofits real-time on steel bridges. To date, MATECH's EFS system is the only technology of its kind to identify cracks in bridges as small as 0.01 inches.

"We believe that the presentation at the 2009 International Bridge Conference was a tremendous success," said Robert M. Bernstein, CEO of MATECH. "We further believe that by the end of the presentation, those attending the conference were as confident and excited as we are that our SIS program with Northrop Grumman could serve to revolutionize infrastructure management, and in turn serve to save our failing bridges as well as thwart the devastating effects their potential collapse."
