Spectrum Signal Processing Enters Teaming Agreement with Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. to Pursue US Army ETOSS Omnibus Support Service Contract

COLUMBIA, MARYLAND--(CCNMatthews - June 13, 2005) - Spectrum Signal Processing (USA) Inc., a subsidiary of Spectrum Signal Processing Inc. (TSX:SSY)(NASDAQ:SSPI), today announced that it has entered into a teaming agreement with Booz Allen Hamilton Inc. (Booz Allen) to pursue an Engineering, Technical and Operational Support Services (ETOSS) omnibus support service contract being procured by the US Army. ETOSS supersedes the Army's Technical Engineering, Fabrication and Operations Support (TEFOS) omnibus support service contracts.

The ETOSS contract is expected to provide a broad range of operational, program management, technical engineering, integration, prototype development and fabrication support services and products to the Information and Intelligence Warfare Directorate (I2WD) of the US Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM). The ETOSS contractor(s) will be tasked to perform services that require expert knowledge of technical disciplines including advanced digital signal processing and communications, intelligence data fusion, electronic combat and other disciplines involved in multi-mission/multi-spectral technologies.

Pursuant to the teaming agreement, Spectrum will support Booz Allen relative to CECOM's ETOSS request for proposal. Spectrum expects to provide application engineering services and software defined radio (SDR) platforms over the duration of any resultant contract.

"Spectrum has established itself as a leader in software defined radio technologies and specifically the Software Communications Architecture; the open architecture framework required by all Joint Tactical Radio System compliant devices," stated James P. Atkins, President of Spectrum Signal Processing (USA) Inc. "We are pleased to be part of the Booz Allen team and believe that Spectrum can deliver considerable value to the US Army's CECOM over the coming years."
