ESCORT, FIRST TO INTRODUCE TRAFFIC LASER DETECTOR; LAUNCHES NEW LINE OF
 PASSPORT RADAR DETECTORS OFFERING WIDE RANGE OF OPTIONS AND PRICES
 CINCINNATI, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Eight Passport detectors -- one laser and seven radar detectors, including three wide band units -- are being introduced by the Escort division of Cincinnati Microwave, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNMW). The laser detector, which is the world's first traffic laser detector to be manufactured and marketed for consumer use, will sell for $99. The new radar detectors range in price from a $69 basic unit to a full-featured wide-band model at $219.
 In announcing the product introduction, Cincinnati Microwave president, Jacques Robinson, noted "That the development and manufacture of Escort's laser detector underscores Escort's reputation for innovation and leading-edge technology.
 "The Passport 1000 LASER detector is Escort's response to consumer demand for this newest detection technology now. Laser is here and we have it," Robinson said. "However, radar is still the dominant technology, and will be for many years to come, since there are only a few hundred laser guns in use throughout the U.S. by states and municipalities. The use of laser guns has been highly publicized and they appear to be proliferating."
 Because of the dominance of radar speed detection devices, Escort has invested a great deal of its resources to the development of its first line of wide-band models, has expanded into the value-price market and has added to the Passport Classic line of radar detectors.
 In addition to the laser detector, Escort is introducing three other product categories: wide-band Ka radar, two-band radar, and professional driver models. All the new products feature the Escort brand name prominently. "We are proud of Escort's excellent reputation for reliability and technical excellence," said General Manager Gary Oppito. "Every one of our products, regardless of price, will benefit from Escort's quality assurance operation, state-of-the-art computerized manufacturing and superior research facilities," he said.
 The low-cost units represent the company's first foray into the value-price market, and were developed to meet the needs of entry-level consumers. These Passport radar detectors are manufactured to the same high quality standards as the higher priced models.
 Three radar detectors that resolve X, K and all Ka signals are Escort's introduction into the wide-band product category. "They are a significant improvement over most other wide-band detectors because we've included digital signal processing technology to provide considerably advanced range and warning time," Oppito said.
 Two additional models are being added to the Classic line. Passport Classic radar detectors are designed for professional drivers and more demanding motorists. Specifications are the same as those required for electronic components in U.S. military vehicles in order to assure top reliability, quality and durability. The units' electronics meet or exceed the U.S. military's stringent performance standards. The Passport Classic models can even survive a 4-foot drop onto concrete! They will withstand "washboard" road vibrations, abrupt stops, and other teeth jarring road problems many motorists endure.
 Cincinnati Microwave, Inc. and its subsidiaries manufacture and market a variety of electronic products. The Escort Division is the leader in radar detection technology and manufactures and sells Passport, Passport Classic and Solo brand radar detectors.
