CINCINNATI MICROWAVE INTRODUCES LASER DETECTOR AND TRUE WIDEBAND Ka DETECTOR TECHNOLOGIES

 CINCINNATI MICROWAVE INTRODUCES LASER DETECTOR
 AND TRUE WIDEBAND Ka DETECTOR TECHNOLOGIES
 CINCINNATI, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- ESCORT, a division of Cincinnati Microwave, Inc. (NASDAQ: CNMW), today announced it has developed a working prototype of a laser detector designed to provide warning of the presence of laser speed measuring devices. Manufacturers of laser speed guns had previously claimed that laser is an undetectable method of speed measurement.
 During a press briefing at ESCORT headquarters, Jacques Robinson, Cincinnati Microwave CEO, demonstrated a working model of the laser detector using an LTI laser gun as a source.
 "Laser speed measurement guns are detectable," said Robinson. "ESCORT has possessed this technology for some time and can bring it to market should sufficient consumer demand develop. However, due to the minimal number of laser guns in use today (and the high cost of these units), sufficient demand does not yet exist, nor do we expect it anytime soon."
 It is estimated that more than 200,000 speed measurement devices are in use in the U.S. today. Of these, fewer than 200 employ laser technology. Virtually all of the remainder measure speed by a standard X or K band radar technology. "Radar is still the speed measurement of choice for law enforcement," stated Robinson.
 In addition to discussing ESCORT's laser detector technology, Robinson also demonstrated a working model of a new wide-band detector designed to detect Ka radar. "In total, fewer than 100 wide-band radar guns are in use nationwide. Again, it's a matter of consumer need and business economics. We have the technology and the detectors are ready for immediate production if the need arises," said Robinson.
 ESCORT, the leader in speed detection technology is headquartered in Cincinnati. ESCORT manufactures and sells Passport, Passport Classic 2700, Escort DSP and Solo brand radar detectors directly to the consumer via print advertising and direct-mail.
