SatMAX Helps Fort Bend County, Texas Comply With Texas Hazard Communications Act

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 25, 2009) - Officials with SatMAX Corporation. (PINKSHEETS: SATM), a leading global provider of wireless, non-line-of-sight satellite communications products and services, announced that Fort Bend County, Texas, one of the fastest growing counties in the country, has become a SatMAX customer. The County purchased a SatMAX® Emergency Communications System to help ensure constant satellite telephone communication for disaster recovery personnel in the event that land-based communications (cell tower or Public Switched Telephone Networks) are compromised.

To meet the challenges of communications during and after natural disasters like Hurricane Ike, Fort Bend County (, like many other local governments across the State of Texas, was seeking a viable non-land-based backup communications system to enhance its current communications and to meet state emergency response requirements. Under the Texas Hazard Communications Act, each county in Texas is required by state mandate to coordinate public service in a disaster with effective emergency response. The County's ability to do this depends largely on dependable communication with state and federal agencies, hospitals, law enforcement and other first responders. The SatMAX® system, which enhances Iridium's reliability and strong coverage with mobility and flexibility, offers an affordable, dependable solution to this challenge.

"The SatMAX system is a critical component of our disaster communications plan and is ready if any or all other means of terrestrial communications are compromised," said Janette Walker, Senior Fort Bend County Emergency Management Coordinator.

The SatMAX System creates a satellite communications "hotspot" enabling fully wireless coverage for multiple concurrent users in non-line-of-sight environments. With the SatMAX System, users of the Iridium satellite network can now use satellite telephones or data terminals to make multiple concurrent calls within SatMAX enabled "hotspot" areas from anywhere on Earth.
