AUSTIN, Texas, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TrackingPoint™, creator of the
world's first Precision Guided Firearm(PGF) system, today announced that
Marsha L. Osborn has joined the company as Senior Vice President of

TrackingPoint President Jason Schauble hopes to establish greater balance
through hires such as Osborn. "Marsha Osborn is a clear example of an

challenging and exciting phase in its development, but also to our industry."

Osborn comes to TrackingPoint from Motion Computing, an Austin-based provider
of mobile device solutions. Hired as Director of Operations at Motion

it supplies to vertical markets.

Prior to Motion Computing, Osborn served as Director of Business Development
and Director of Manufacturing Austin for Tyco Electronics. Other executive
posts have included operations and business acquisition management positions
at Raytheon Systems, Texas Instruments, and Headway Research.

At TrackingPoint, Osborn will lead the company's efforts to support its
business opportunities through reliable, repeatable manufacturing, supply
chains, logistics and quality control. "TrackingPoint is a company with a
remarkable upside," Osborn commented. "Its landmark technologies have multiple
and far-reaching applications. I'm looking forward to meeting the diverse
operational challenges that come with such innovation."

Named as Woman of the Year in Technology by the National Association of
Professional Women, Osborn is also an experienced markswoman. She has spoken
at a number of high-tech industry events and has achieved her Six Sigma Master
Black Belt certification from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. Osborn
