MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 9, 2002--

Radiem System to be promoted to members of U.S. Congress and federal procurement officials in a directory to be distributed at the Small Business Homeland Security Expo

Lanovation(R) Inc., maker of best-of-breed solutions for software deployment and real-time monitoring and control for remote equipment, announced today it will be included in a directory of homeland security products to be distributed at the Small Business Homeland Security Expo in Washington D.C. on July 10th, 2002. Lanovation's Radiem(R) System, which can be used to monitor and control remote equipment in homeland security applications, was chosen for its ingenuity and ability to support America's homeland security.

To be considered for participation, organizations had to be sponsored by a member of the United States Congress. Senator Paul Wellstone of Minnesota nominated Lanovation for inclusion in the event. A letter to Lanovation from Senator Wellstone announcing inclusion in the directory stated, "Your research, products and technologies are critically important to our economy and our nation."

The directory will be used to educate U.S. Congress and procurement representatives in the federal agencies on products currently being developed and produced in the private marketplace that will help efforts to protect our homeland.

In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, the federal government reached out to business leaders across the nation seeking information about products and innovative ideas that could play an important role in protecting our borders, citizens and way of life. Co-chaired by U.S. Senators John F. Kerry and Christopher S. Bond, the Expo was created to inform the federal government about products and innovative ideas that lend to the security and defense of the United States at this crucial juncture of our history.
