ANN ARBOR, Michigan, September 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Arotech Corporation (NasdaqGM: ARTX), a provider of quality defense and
security products for the military, law enforcement and homeland security
markets, announced today that its Battery and Power Systems Division received
a $2 million follow on order from the United States Army for its award-winning
SWIPES^[^TM^] System.

The Soldier Wearable Integrated Power Equipment System, or SWIPES^[^TM^]
enables extended mission times without the burden of power source swaps or
charging due to their high energy density. It also reduces battery weight that
soldiers are carrying by up to 30%. The batteries continuously charge the
secondary batteries inside various devices, such as two way radios, GPS units
and shot detection systems. The SWIPES^[^TM^] product allows for individual
tailoring for a soldier and is designed to accept new applications as they
become available.

"We're very pleased to win this additional order from the US army, reflecting
the products increasing acceptance among US Ground Forces," commented
Arotech's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Robert S. Ehrlich. "The US
army is the world's leading military force, especially when it comes to the
use of technology on the battlefield. The fact that they repeatedly choose our
SWIPES system as well as awarding it a 'Top-Ten Best Army Inventions' upon its
launch, is testament to the effectiveness and the value our product adds.
Since developing the SWIPES product, we have realized over $6 million in sales
from the US army. We see significant future growth potential for this product-
not only for the various divisions of the US military, but also for ground
forces of other armies."
