$1.2 Million in Additional Funding Secured to Continue Development of Dual-Mode Micro-Seeker Technology for Near-Term Use in Defensive Military Applications Such as Counter-Rocket, Artillery and Mortar Systems

MONROVIA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Dec 18, 2009 -- Dr. John Tanner, President and founder of Tanner Research, Inc. announced today that the Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) awarded a contract for $1.2 million in additional funding to continue development of a dual-mode micro-seeker technology needed to guide gun-launched counter-munitions to intercept incoming rocket, artillery and mortar (C-RAM) threats. Upon being notified of the contract award, Congressman David Dreier (CA, 26th) commented, "I am proud to support Tanner Research's efforts in developing this important defense system component to protect U.S. troops against incoming rocket, artillery and mortar threats. I applaud the hard-working researchers who have produced cutting-edge technologies for our armed forces."

Monrovia-based Tanner Research, Inc. is developing a dual-mode micro-seeker to cost-effectively combine a bistatic radar seeker for coarse-control with a short-range optical-based seeker for precision terminal accuracy in the endgame. Tanner's unique dual-mode seeker concept optimizes both modalities at very low-cost for use in high-density gun-and missile-launched counter-munitions applications such as the Army's Extended Area Protection System (EAPS).

"America's ability to continue to innovate but at a lower cost may be the challenge for the 21st Century, particularly in assuring our national defense and future success as a nation. We look forward to continue working with ARDEC in providing the Army and other services with the high-value technology needed in the most cost-effective manner possible," said Dr. John Tanner.

Tanner Research provides advanced technology research with focus areas in imagers, image processing, chemical detection and micro machine design; and electronic design automation (EDA) software tools, consulting engineering and manufacturing services for integrated circuits. Customers include the U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Energy, NASA, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Microsoft, IBM, and Intel.
