LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- September 09, 2010

Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, Inc. (OTCBB: BEAC) (www.askbeacon.com), an

performance Information Technology Systems (ITS) infrastructure solutions,
today announced that it has signed a Master Marketing Agreement with Science
Applications International Corporation (SAIC) (NYSE:SAI) to pursue joint ITS
infrastructure initiatives with Fortune 500^® clients.

As part of the agreement, the two companies will focus their sales and
marketing efforts on major enterprise clients that have requirements for
information technology and telecommunications products and services, including
infrastructure design, passive optical networks and state-of-the-art voice /
video / data systems and integration.

SAIC plans to offer customers Secure Converged Solution (SCS) and Passive
Optical Local area networking (POL) and other complementary services in joint
client opportunities, including consulting, design, implementation services
and products and onsite operations management. SAIC SCS solutions include:

  *IT consulting
  *Network design
  *VoIP and other telephony design and installation
  *Building security design and installation
  *Building management systems integration
  *RF / IP video equipment design and installation
  *Smart cities / campus consulting, design and installation

Beacon’s objective is to offer joint clients ITS Management and other
professional services that include:

  *Design and Engineering
  *Service Delivery Management (SDM)
  *ITS Contract Services (ICS)
  *ITS Construction Management (ICM)

“I am proud to announce the signing of this agreement with SAIC, a highly
respected and leading provider of information technology solutions,” said
Bruce Widener, CEO of Beacon. “This reciprocal marketing agreement supports
Beacon’s focus on managed professional services to Fortune 500^® clients. We
expect the value-added services will contribute to our organic growth
objectives as we focus our business on the most profitable areas in the ITS
industry. We look forward to working closely with SAIC under this new
Marketing Agreement to offer our respective services to joint clients.”

“The agreement with SAIC represents the continued focus Beacon has committed
to solving the complex issues facing our clients, who need to standardize and
consolidate in order to reduce both capital and operating expenses,” said
Jerry Bowman, COO of Beacon. “One fantastic enterprise solution is the SAIC
POL solution that offers government and commercial clients cost-effective,
fully converged voice, video, and data networks which eliminate active
electronics between the data center and the end user at distances ranging from
40 feet to 40 miles. In addition, the implementation of the SAIC POL means
increases in bandwidth speeds and reductions in IT-related power, space and
cooling expenses. This solution complements Beacons focus on Layer 1
infrastructure, and when combined with ITS Management, could put significant
capital dollars back into the IT and facilities budgets. Our team is ready to
work with SAIC to bring the industry-best ITS infrastructure solutions to our
clients.”

Founded in 1969, SAIC is a Fortune 500^® scientific, engineering, and
technology applications company that uses its deep domain knowledge to solve
problems of vital importance to the nation and the world, in national
security, energy and the environment, critical infrastructure, and health. The

Department of Defense, the intelligence community, the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security, other U.S. Government civil agencies and selected
commercial markets. SAIC had annual revenues of $10.8 billion for its fiscal
year ended January 31, 2010.

“We look forward to working with Beacon on joint client opportunities to
deliver best-in-class ITS solutions which this specific market demands. We
believe our combined efforts will enable both organizations to help address
our customer’s most complex IT challenges,” said Jeffrey McGaughey, VP of IT
Modernization Programs at SAIC.
