QinetiQ North America Launches Integrated Warrior System(TM) at Soldier
Technology Show

RESTON, Va., Jan. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - QinetiQ North
America (QNA) today introduced its Integrated Warrior System™ (IWS), an
innovative technology solution that enables Warfighters to manage multiple
mission systems through a single end-user device, such as a smartphone, tablet
or other tactical computer.

IWS increases situational awareness and improves access to critical mission
resources by creating a personal area network for the Warfighter. With IWS,
the Warfighter can plug-and-play a wide variety of peripherals such as
smartphones, computers, mission critical software applications, gunfire
detection systems and much more through a lightweight, wearable hub.

IWS supports seamless operations by integrating data and power from diverse
systems. Its simplified battery power management solution ensures that each
connected device can operate reliably and efficiently in remote or hostile
areas. This ergonomic system can be easily integrated into legacy vests and
helmets, and its universal design accommodates peripherals from multiple
manufacturers.

"Modernization initiatives have sought to integrate electronics and sensors on
the Warfighter ensemble without adding extra equipment and weight," said QNA's
Technology Solutions Group President J.D. Crouch. "IWS is a sleek, rugged
solution that easily integrates commercial and military devices through an
open architecture that is designed to support today's Warfighter."

With applicability across the operational, mission rehearsal, and training and
simulation domains, IWS is a total customer solution with scalable hardware,
software, accessories and systems integration support.

IWS will be on display through January 30, 2013 at QinetiQ North America's
Soldier Tech Expo Booth 3 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA.
