API Technologies to Showcase its Products & Engineering Capabilities at AUSA

ORLANDO, FL — October 4, 2011 — API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY) (“API” or the “Company”), a provider of electronic systems, subsystems, RF, and secure systems for defense, aerospace, and commercial applications, announced today that it will showcase its diverse defense products and solutions at Booth #3654 at the AUSA 2011 Annual Meeting & Exposition. This is the Company’s first time exhibiting at AUSA, which takes place October 10-12 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC.

“With our acquisitions of Spectrum Control (Spectrum Microwave, Spectrum Power Management Systems, Spectrum Sensors & Controls, and Spectrum Advanced Specialty Products) and SenDEC earlier this year, API now supports more than 300 defense programs covering all major defense areas including RF & Microwave, Systems, Subsystems, Components and Security,” said Tara Flynn Condon, Vice President, Corporate Marketing, API Technologies. “AUSA gives us an exciting opportunity to showcase to the industry the impressive engineering and manufacturing capabilities that our company now has to offer to our global customer base.”

“API Technologies has also expanded our manufacturing capabilities, both in the U.S. and around the world, with multiple MIL-PRF-38534, AS9100, and ISO certified facilities able to meet a wide-range of military and aerospace standards,” added Ms. Condon. “In addition, our engineers are among the best and the brightest in the sector with experience both in and out of the defense market.”

Some of API Technologies’ key product/solution areas include:

  • Electronic Warfare: API designs and manufacturers many of the components (RF, power, filters) that are incorporated into a variety of electronic warfare (EW) products. The Company also specializes in the contract manufacturing of EW systems, used by armed forces throughout the world. In addition, API’s payload engineers developed and manufacture the world’s most popular line of aiming devices for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) systems. 
  • Anti-jam GPS: GPS is an essential part of military operations/infrastructure. With minimal skills and/or equipment, the enemy has the ability to jam GPS signals in a given area, undermining the DoD’s ability to conduct necessary operations. API has combined its leading filter and low noise amplifier products, to produce a component solution with an incredibly small footprint to enable GPS anti-jam products to be even more compact, lightweight and highly reliable with dynamic range capabilities. 
  • Military & Aerospace Electronics: As the industry continues its shift to smaller, lighter, and faster -- products from API are leading the way. Whether it is the design and manufacture of individual components (RF/Microwave, Filters, Sensors, and Connectors), or the complete build and design of Integrated Microwave Assemblies (IMAs), API’s facilities are qualified to MIL-PRF-38534 standards. In addition, API is the leader in MIL-STD-1553 data bus and hybrid circuit design and manufacturing, which includes the world’s smallest, hermetically-sealed 1553 data bus available today. 
  • Unmanned Systems: API provides engineering support to a full-range of unmanned systems including UAVs, UGVs, robotics, and Ro-Ro systems under both government contracts and with industry partners. With expertise in EO-IR, payloads, specialty design, testing and manufacturing, API offers product support from concept to completion. API also manufacturers many of the filters and power components used in unmanned systems, while the Secure Communications side of the business ensured that ground control systems, servers, and laptops keep the information collected safe and secure.
  • Wireless Communications: By working with some of the world’s leading suppliers of military radios, API has designed several turn-key solutions to increase productivity of existing devices. One such product is the RF Signal Extender that exponentially increases the range of SecNet 11® communications. The Company’s component division also design and manufacture many of the RF, filter, and antennas that are used in a majority of the leading military radio communication devices. 
  • Secure Communications: As a leading supplier of TEMPEST and ultra-ruggedized communications equipment around the world (Cryptek™, EMCON®, and SST™ brands), and one of the world’s leading providers of EMI filters, API has been keeping critical communications safe for more than 30 years. API also recently announced a new line of IPMEIR encryption devices to replace or supplement Type-1 encryption for secret and below environments. 
  • Chemical Warfare: API engineers recently developed a new Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) substrate for the collection and analysis of airborne chemicals. This, combined with API’s expertise in payload development, is charting a new era of chemical detection for emergency situations.
