Next Generation MPR2000 Supports Radar Formats and Sensor Protocols for Enhanced Interoperability and Worldwide Deployment

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, March 9, 2010 - PT (Nasdaq: PTIX), the recently rebranded Performance Technologies, a
leading global provider of advanced network communications solutions, today
announced the introduction of its MPR2000 Radar and Sensor Data
Recording/Playback System. The new offering enables integrators to more
easily expand their existing air traffic control recording systems and
leverage new technologies to build next generation, IP-based sensor and radar
recording solutions.

The MPR2000 Data Record/Playback System is the newest addition to the
company's suite of air traffic control and defense communication systems,
complementing the world class MPS1000 Data Distribution Server which
transports multiple radar formats and sensor interfaces over IP. For over a
decade, PT systems have provided extremely reliable and highly available
services over IP networks, by gathering and delivering vital data such as
weather, flight tracking, and ground surveillance. The company's presence in
air traffic control and defense-related communication systems includes over
3,500 systems deployed in 30 different countries.

PT's MPR2000 expands the current portfolio by adding the capability to
easily record and play back radar/sensor data. The record feature stores data
in raw or payload format with highly accurate timestamping, enabling the user
to view previously captured data as source material to analyze or transmit to
remote archive locations. A unique feature of the MPR2000 is its multiple
playback function, whereby simultaneous sessions may be conducted and widely
distributed to discrete users. The MPR2000 employs a web-based user interface
simplifying set-up, configuration, monitoring, and maintenance in order to
create an intuitive, user-friendly experience. Unlike other offerings, these
capabilities apply to the entire platform as well as to specific radar/sensor
ports (links) running specific communications protocols. Finally, MPR2000's
flexible platform accepts optional processor blades and PT's NexusWare(R)
Linux(R) distribution, enabling tight integration of applications and
reducing the need for additional servers.

"PT is very proud to introduce the newest member of our Air Traffic
Control portfolio," said Ed Bizari, Vice President of Military, Aerospace,
and Government Systems for PT. "Coupled with our popular, field proven
MPS1000, the MPR2000 delivers a one-two punch to provide mission-critical, IP
communication solutions, and it represents our ongoing commitment to the Air
Traffic Control and government systems industry to provide best in class

PT is demonstrating its Air Traffic Control solutions that include the
