Default General Dynamics and M/A-COM join forces to build-out IWIN

LOWELL, Mass - June 4, 2007 -Tyco Electronics' M/A-COM business, a worldwide leader of critical radio communications systems, announced today that it is a member of a team led by General Dynamics that was recently awarded the federal Integrated Wireless Network (IWN) project. The Department of Justice selected the General Dynamics C4 Systems team as the contractor of choice to implement IWN, which, once completed, will provide a range of secure and reliable wireless communications services to federal law enforcement and homeland security field agents. Tyco Electronics' M/A-COM business will support General Dynamics by providing expertise in land mobile radio technology and on related interoperable communications issues.

"Tyco Electronics' M/A-COM business is extremely honored to be working with General Dynamics and all the IWN teammates to deliver a realistic, cost-effective and technologically advanced critical communications system for the Federal government," said John Vaughan, senior vice president and CTO, Tyco Electronics' M/A-COM business. "We are committed to providing the federal government a reliable and interoperable radio communications system that will further its agencies' law enforcement and homeland security missions. IWN is an extremely important, extensive, but highly achievable project to which we are pleased to contribute."

On the General Dynamics team, the M/A-COM business is joined by IBM, Nortel Government Solutions and Verizon Wireless.

IWN is a collaborative effort by the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security and the Treasury to provide a consolidated nationwide federal wireless communications service that replaces stand alone radio systems, and supports law enforcement and homeland security requirements with integrated communications services (voice, data, and multimedia) in a wireless environment. IWN will implement solutions to provide federal agency interoperability with appropriate links to state, local, and tribal public safety, and homeland security entities.
