CAMPBELL, California -- February 13, 2013

AOptix (www.aoptix.com), a technology innovation company that leverages optics
to transform identity verification and wireless communications, today
announced that it has been awarded a contract to develop Smart Mobile Identity
devices for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD). AOptix will be working with
CACI International Inc., a leading information solutions and services
provider, as a key subcontractor to deliver this commercial-for-classified
solution to the DoD.

AOptix was awarded the contract based on the company’s unique integration of
biometrics, including iris, fingerprint, face and voice recognition, with
smartphone technology. This initiative for the DoD will leverage the Smart
Mobile Identity platform developed by AOptix, demonstrated in September at the
Biometrics Consortium Conference, which will be tailored to specific DoD
requirements. By coupling state-of-the-art biometric functionality with a
sophisticated smartphone interface, the AOptix Smart Mobile Identity platform
provides exceptional ease of use coupled with unparalleled identity
verification accuracy for in-field use, even under challenging conditions.

CACI brings a deep understanding of DoD technology and deployment criteria.
The company has developed tools for managing data in secure environments that
include Mobile Device Management, federated enterprise mobile app mall
capabilities, and advanced encryption and secure wireless transport. In
addition to meeting the U.S. government’s Federal Information Processing
Standard (FIPS) for data security, these solutions will enable the Smart
Mobile Identity device to be deployed effectively and securely in the DoD
environment and scaled to fit its needs.

“We are pleased to have been selected by the DoD for this important project
which will leverage our next-generation Smart Mobile Identity platform,” said
Dean Senner, Chairman and CEO of AOptix. “Users of these systems in-field will
benefit from a more compact, lightweight, versatile and accurate identity
verification device than has previously been available. We are especially
pleased to be working with CACI, leveraging its experience deploying
sophisticated solutions for government agencies.”

According to Dan Allen, President and Chief Executive Officer of CACI, “AOptix
has developed a groundbreaking Smart Mobile Identity platform, and we are
pleased to work with them to develop a leading-edge solution that will fill
the specific requirements of the Department of Defense and military. AOptix’s
open platform approach will enable us to rapidly incorporate input from the
DoD and develop a product that is ready for full scale deployment.”
