GREENLAWN, N.Y. -- October 23, 2012

U.S. Forces are one step closer to reducing the chance of friendly fire
incidents with the deployment of the BAE Systems’ Combat Identification Server
(CID Server) to Afghanistan. The CID Server helps provide combat pilots with
the ability to determine whether or not there are friendly forces in the
vicinity of targeted areas of interest.

“We have a long standing tradition of leading the way in combat identification
based on our Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) products used in aircraft,
ships and air defense units,” said Paul Markwardt, vice president and deputy
general manager of BAE Systems Electronic Systems. “Transferring our proven
capability to protect ground forces from friendly fire is both a natural
extension of our historical commitment to IFF and our responsibility to our
nation’s warfighters. We are proud that CID Server is protecting troops in
theatre today.”

The CID Server provides a graphical representation of friendly forces to the
pilot in response to their normal actions during combat operations. Pilots do
not have to learn any new procedures to implement the life saving action and
no changes are needed to their planes to utilize the function.

The CID Server system was born out of the Bold Quest series of Coalition
Combat Identification demonstrations conducted by the Joint Staff Joint Fires
Division (formerly USJFCOM J-85), and was developed in a cooperative manner
between BAE Systems and the Joint and Coalition communities in order to
service U.S. and Coalition forces.

The CID Server has demonstrated interoperability with multiple U.S. and NATO
partner command and control systems and on U.S. F-15, F-16, A-10, and F/A-18
aircraft and Coalition Belgian F-16 and French Mirage 2000.
