Cryptek™ TEMPEST TelePresence EX 90 Now in Production

ORLANDO, FL  — May 8, 2012 — 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 it is now shipping the Cryptek™ TEMPEST TelePresence EX 90 System. This Cryptek TEMPEST EX 90 is based on the Cisco® TelePresence EX 90 and meets NSTISSAM 1-92, Level 1 and NATO SDIP-27, Level A standards while delivering face-to-face communications in an office or small conference room environment.

“TEMPEST equipment--such as computers, phones, and fax machines--have been used for years by the U.S. Government and NATO forces as a way to stop the interception of secure information in electromagnetic radiation,” said Rick Mahar, VP  & General Manager, Secure Systems and Information Assurance (SSIA) Division, API Technologies. “With the addition of the TEMPEST EX 90 to our Cryptek line of secure government electronics, governmental agencies and their partners can now collaborate face-to-face while still maintaining strict TEMPEST standards.”

The Cryptek TEMPEST TelePresence EX 90 System begins with the Cisco unit which is highly modified and certified to NSTISSAM 1-92, Level 1 and NATO SDIP-27, Level A standards. The telepresence monitor has a 24 inch high definition display which can also be used as a PC monitor. The handset has an 8 inch touchscreen display allowing for simple control and collaboration in one touch. The fully-integrated system supports embedded Multisite to conference up to four locations at once. It features CD quality noise cancelling audio, AGC, and ANR.
