COMPTEK TELECOMMUNICATIONS ANNOUNCESTHE ACQUISITION OF 62 MAS LICENSES TO SUPPORT THE DATAMOVER(TM)

 BUFFALO, N.Y., March 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Comptek Telecommunications, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Comptek Research, Inc. (AMEX: CTK), today announced the accumulation of 62 Microwave Radio Station Licenses for operating a Multiple Address System (MAS) in locations throughout the United States. The MAS licenses, obtained from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), as well as commercial sources, cover major metropolitan areas and will be used to support the rollout of the DataMover line of wireless data communication products in the U.S. The DataMover, a wireless system for linking data processing and transmission equipment such as ATM machines, POS devices, and other electronic funds transfer (EFT) equipment within a metropolitan area, is designed and manufactured by Comptek Telecommunications, Inc. for Bison Data Corporation. Bison Data sells the DataMover 2000 product line on a worldwide exclusive basis.
 John Cummings, president of Comptek Research, Inc., the parent company of Comptek Telecommunications, Inc., stated: "Frequency availability is critical to our business. Users in the EFT industry demand reliable communication and prefer the use of dedicated frequencies for wireless wide area network solutions. When we applied to the FCC for licenses last year, we informed them that our goal was to obtain licenses that Comptek could transfer to clients interested in building DataMover metropolitan area networks which would be an efficient and cost-effective alternative to telephone lines."
 Comptek expects to complete construction of DataMover network infrastructures in each city in the next several months, well within the time limit established by the FCC.
 The DataMover uses patented software and advanced digital technology to transmit "bursty" data via radio waves over large metropolitan areas. Among the advantages of the DataMover are that the network accommodates large numbers of participants using multiple protocols simultaneously, and multiple clients using major protocols such as ASYNC, 3270, and SDLC can use the network without the need for custom software.
 The DataMover is marketed in the United States by Bison Data Corporation directly and through a network of distributors in Latin America, South America, the Far East, China, and Russia.
 Comptek Research, Inc., the parent firm of Comptek Telecommunications, Inc., is an international supplier of technically advanced electronics and data communication systems to government and industry. Bison Data Corporation is a joint venture among Comptek Telecommunications, Inc., Joe Wolfson, Rand Capital (OTC: RAND) and Bydatel Corporation.
