BOULDER, Colo. -- March 4, 2013

ITT Exelis (NYSE: XLS) subsidiary Exelis Visual Information Solutions has
released new technology that makes it possible for organizations to easily
extend image analysis capabilities to an entire user base through a cloud or
enterprise framework.

The new product, ENVI Services Engine, is based on the scientific algorithms
in ENVI image analysis software. It was developed in response to the growing
adoption of cloud computing in government agencies as shrinking budgets and
massive amounts of geospatial data necessitate more efficient systems.

ENVI Services Engine allows agencies to quickly and easily create, publish and
deploy advanced image analytics as Web services. These services are then made
available from a server on thin and mobile clients so that data from airborne
and satellite imagery can be used for more informed and faster
decision-making.

“The cloud implementation of ENVI offers organizations a host of efficiencies
that are always welcome, especially during a time when streamlining resources
and processes is essential,” said Jaye Lampe, president of Exelis Visual
Information Solutions. "Deployment of ENVI Services Engine provides critical
image analysis services across an entire enterprise, still providing the
complex, proven image analysis methods decision-makers need in order to use
data as actionable intelligence.”

The area of intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance data analytics is a
strategic growth area for Exelis and ENVI image analysis products are already
widely used in the military and intelligence sector, allowing the forward
deployed to use imagery to detect targets, locate threats, coordinate safe
troop movement, and identify important terrain conditions. The new cloud-based
ENVI product delivers significant benefits, including cost savings through
lower capital investment and ease of management, quality control and the
flexibility to scale up or down to meet demand.

The ENVI Services Engine architecture is flexible, allowing it to be easily
deployed into nearly any existing enterprise, including the popular Esri
ArcGIS® Server environment. This makes it a cost-effective solution that
requires little additional training for users. A cloud-based solution is also
easier to manage, allowing administrators to perform faster, more frequent
updates to the system as opposed to pushing updates to a network of desktops.
