TEMECULA, Calif. -- January 21, 2013

Cassidian Communications, an EADS North America company, will participate in
the 2013 CALNENA Mission Critical Training event, taking place January 23-24
in San Diego, Calif. Cassidian Communications will provide hands-on
demonstrations of the new VESTA^® 4.0 and Sentinel^® 4.0 NG9-1-1
communications systems. Registered attendees will be among the first to share
in the company’s long-term vision for integrated, geospatial multimedia public
safety communications.

“Being a corporate resident of California and a leader in public safety
communications for well over 40 years, the CALNENA event is important to our
team,” said Bob Freinberg, CEO of Cassidian Communications. “With nearby San
Diego as the venue, we have a special opportunity to spend time with many
in-state customers, potential customers and technology partners. CALNENA is
the perfect forum for us to demonstrate exactly how and why CRITICAL MATTERS™,
as conveyed in our new branding, plus showcase our all-new VESTA 4.0 and
Sentinel 4.0 call processing systems for the first time in 2013.”

Visitors to Cassidian Communications’ booth #205 will see the highly
configurable and vastly intuitive user interfaces (UIs) of these critical
systems, considered to be a primary building block within the company’s next
generation public safety communications platform. This platform is a
foundational component of Cassidian Communications’ next generation public
safety communications ecosystem, which encompasses 9-1-1 call routing and call
processing, mapping, MIS and analytics, emergency notification, P25 land
mobile radio and LTE, and managed services, including real-time monitoring and
response and disaster recovery.

“The VESTA 4.0 and Sentinel 4.0 NG9-1-1 systems enable public safety answering
points (PSAPs) to take a crucial first step on the path toward integrated,
geospatial multimedia communications,” said Jeff Wittek, Cassidian
Communications’ Chief Strategic Officer. “They also provide our customers
invaluable investment protection during this time of rapid technological
change.”

In addition to the VESTA 4.0 and Sentinel 4.0 systems, Cassidian
Communications plans to demonstrate its Aurora^® management information system
(MIS) solution, the ORION^™ Vela^® geospatial application and The
Communicator!^® NXT^™ and GeoCast^® Web^™ emergency notification products.
Representatives will also be on hand to discuss the company’s COR^P25 land
mobile radio solution, most recently adopted by the city of Montréal, Canada,
as well as its long term evolution (LTE) devices and applications.

Registered attendees are encouraged to take part in the four workshop sessions
Cassidian Communications will sponsor. These are entitled: The Next Generation
Public Safety Communications Ecosystem; NG9-1-1 GIS from the Ground Up;
Advanced Hosted PSAP Solutions and The Next Generation PSAP.

The 2013 CALNENA 9-1-1 Mission Critical Training Conference will take place at
the Manchester Grand Hyatt. All registered attendees are eligible to win “My
Work Number is 9-1-1” blankets and noise cancelling headphones provided by
Cassidian Communications during the vendor hall raffle. To view the full

“On behalf of everyone at Cassidian Communications, we look forward to seeing
many of you, our valued customers, during next week’s CALNENA event,” said

you our vision for the future and learn more about what it means to your
public safety operation and ultimately, the people you serve.”
