THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- October 23, 2012

Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE: TDY) announced today that its
subsidiary, Teledyne Scientific & Imaging, LLC (TS&I), introduced its first
miniature hot mid-wave infrared (Mini-HMIR) strained-layer-superlattice (SLS)
based 640x512 tactical camera. This SLS Mini-HMIR camera exploits
technological advances in detector technology to improve size, weight and
power for demanding tactical applications. The camera will be on display this
week at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) 2012 annual meeting
and exposition in Washington D.C.

“SLS infrared detectors, which are based on traditional III-V semiconductor
materials, offer the promise of better performance, combined with lower cost
and ease of manufacturing,” said Dr. Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president and
chief executive officer of Teledyne. “Because of its novel technology, SLS
detectors and cameras have the potential to expand the tactical infrared
camera market and also displace other currently available technologies.”

Target applications for the SLS Mini-HMIR camera include the following:
missile seekers, personal weapon sights, light payloads for unmanned aerial
vehicles, hand held imaging applications and situational awareness. The SLS
Mini-HMIR camera provides high value by increasing the detector temperature
while maintaining detection ability. This increased detector temperature
reduces both the cool down time and required power thereby extending camera

TS&I also integrated critical image processing technologies into the camera
including non-uniformity correction, faulty pixel replacement, automatic
camera exposure control to optimize noise performance, and adaptive dynamic
range control on the output video data.

Teledyne Technologies is a leading provider of sophisticated instrumentation,
digital imaging products and software, aerospace and defense electronics, and
engineered systems. Teledyne Technologies’ operations are primarily located in
