Advanced Technology Systems Wins $4.4 Million Contract with Nashville Police Department.

MCLEAN, Va. -- Advanced Technology Systems, Inc., a leading information technology company that delivers innovative technology solutions to federal, state, and local government organizations, today announced that its Public Safety Solutions division was awarded a 14 month, $4.4 million contract from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) to lead the Advanced Records Management System (ARMS) project. The Nashville ARMS system will serve more than 80 regional agencies in one of the largest information management and criminal justice sharing networks in the Southeast United States.

"The Nashville Police Department understands the critical importance of law enforcement information sharing and the need to achieve interoperability among disparate information systems," said Martin Gillespie, Vice President and General Manager of Public Safety Solutions at Advanced Technology Systems. "We are proud to be supporting the city's effort to establish a technologically advanced, open architecture records management system with our cutting-edge, scalable criminal justice solutions."

Under the contract, Advanced Technology Systems will develop an information system that captures, maintains, and analyzes police agency and incident-related event information. ARMS is vital to day-to-day agency operations and the tracking and managing of criminal and non-criminal events and information, including investigations, case management, property and evidence management, criminal history, warrants, court case preparation, court appearance scheduling, and personnel data.

Advanced Technology Systems is providing MNPD with the interagency Internet portal and message brokering application software and leading a team of organizations with expertise in delivering justice solutions to complete the ARMS project. Partners on the project include Denali Solutions for the Records Management System, Patron Systems for the Automated Field Reporting system, The Omega Group for geographic information systems (GIS) crime reporting, and DataWorks Plus for the Web-based mug shots capture and retrieval systems.

"We have assembled a team that is dedicated to making law enforcement stronger through the use of innovative technology," Gillespie added. "The entire project team is committed to developing critical law enforcement solutions and maintaining a high level customer satisfaction."

The integrated solution of these commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) products delivers a comprehensive, seamlessly integrated solution for Nashville officers. Like traditional police record management systems, ARMS allows for the electronic storage and retrieval of crime, arrest and associated information, and also enables public safety personnel to quickly transmit and share real-time incident data, improving the accuracy of information and the overall responsiveness to emergencies and incidents. The Web-based solution also enables officers to receive mission critical information in the field from both MNPD criminal data systems and external sources and to report incident information to supervisors and other law enforcement persons. Furthermore, the system allows officers to conduct queries and access criminal history and mug shot databases from their vehicles within the wireless infrastructure coverage area, helping to centralize and better manage operational response.

"This win, on top of our recent wins at the Veterans Health Administration and the State of Alabama, demonstrates our ability to deliver high quality technology solutions and infrastructure services to agencies in both federal and state government agencies," Gillespie added. Advanced Technology Systems' recent wins with the United States Department of Agriculture, Veterans Health Administration, and State of Alabama are highlighted in press releases issued on November 27, October 26, and October 3, respectively, and are available on the Advanced Technology Systems website at http://www.atsva.com/news.cfm.

Advanced Technology Systems has agreed to be acquired by Federal Services Acquisition Corporation, blank check company that was formed to acquire an operating business in the federal services and defense industries ("Federal Services") (OTC Bulletin Board: FDSA, FDSAU, FDSAW). The transaction is expected to close in early 2007. Interested parties are urged to read Federal Services' definitive proxy statement (the "Proxy Statement") for its special meeting of stockholders to be held in connection with approval of the transaction. The Proxy Statement can be obtained without charge at the Securities and Exchange Commission's internet site at (http://www.sec.gov), and may also be obtained from Federal Services without charge by directing a request to Federal Services Acquisition Corporation, 900 Third Avenue, 33rd Floor, New York, New York 10022-4775.
