1 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy page 1 WHERE SECURITY BEGINS

2 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy page 2 ICx OVERVIEW Primary Industry Focus Security Transportation Although founded in 2003, numerous ICx Technologies business units have been in business for more than 20 years…as far back as 1975…more than 100 years combined 850+ Employees 400+ Engineering and R&D 70+ PhD Research, development and manufacturing in the US, Canada and Germany Headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, USA 2007 revenues over $130M Global customer base ICx debuted on NASDAQ (ICXT) in November, 2007

6 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy XT Detector Hand-held configuration Tethered head for interrogation of hard-to-reach places Removable tether for one-handed operation Robot-mounted configuration Extremely light, less than 2 lbs. May be fully integrated or used as a plug-and-play payload

7 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Origins of Fido - DARPA Dogs Nose Program Program to detect landmines 12 teams selected including MIT, Tufts, Caltech, Texas Instruments, Rockwell Objective: match canine performance ICx Nomadics developed only successful sniffer system Developed and demonstrated Fido technology Proven comparable to dogs in side-by-side tests

8 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Chain of Events Leading to IED Deployment If detection occurs prior to IED deployment, the risk to the general population could be greatly reduced!

9 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Urban Use Scenarios… Find where the bad guys live or make devices Swipe Elevator Buttons If positive, swipe buttons individually to find the floor Then swipe door knobs on that floor to find the door knob or knobs For positives, get a search warrant

10 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Screen motorcycles Screening parked motorcycles is easier than screening people. It also eases concerns about racial profiling. Urban Use Scenarios…

11 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Heightened Threat Awareness Screening Vapor space of handbags – quick and easy Cell phone buttons – covertly if desired Random hand sampling at VIP events Tickets at spectator events Anywhere you need to separate the good from the bad! Urban Use Scenarios…

12 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Effective Application of Fido Trace-level detection of explosive residues on suspected terrorists and their personal effects Suspicious item screening (rooms, backpacks, vehicles) Covert investigation (cracks around doors and windows, items handled by suspicious individuals) Ideal for integration onto robots due to small size, low power consumption and communications capabilities Items that have come into contact with explosive handler can be swiped to identify presence of explosives.

13 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy No Explosives Explosives Amplifying Fluorescent Polymers (AFP) are the detection principle of the Fido XT AFP materials fluoresce intensely in the absence of explosives materials Upon binding to target analytes, the fluorescence is quenched proportionally to the concentration of analyte in the sample The AFP is structured like Receptors wired in a series (see next slide) Technology Background on Fido - AFP

14 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy AFP Technique

15 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Graphic Representation of AFP The orange dots represent explosive molecules that bind to the AFP, the gray dots represent air and other benign molecules continuously flowing through the sensing element As the explosives molecules are drawn through the sensing element, they bind to the AFP, resulting in a decrease in fluorescence within the sensing element (known as the quenching effect) The quenching effect is indicated through both a visible (bar chart) and audible signal (similar to a Geiger counters output) to the operator. Discretion of the audible signal is possible with the use of ear buds. This process is reversible – the Fido clears down quickly after a hit and is ready for additional sampling (note that the explosive molecules do remain bound to the polymer)

16 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Important points about using AFP 1) sensitivity: AFP enables detection of certain types of explosives at levels three orders of magnitude (1,000 times) below that of the most sensitive commercially-available laboratory instruments. The current sensor prototype can detect low femtogram masses of nitro-aromatic explosives such as TNT, and pg-ng levels of other explosives such as RDX and PETN.

17 Confidential and proprietary – do not distribute or copy Important points about using AFP 2) selectivity: Reduced false positives as we will not alarm on farmers handling just fertilizer or people with heart medication 3) speed of results: The Fido XT yields results in a matter of seconds versus longer sampling times for IMS devices (allows for higher throughput rates) 4) ability to verify initial results: After receiving a hit the Fido XT recovers in a matter of seconds as the explosives are flushed out from the continuous air flow generated by the internal pump. Current IMS devices sometimes are down for 45 minutes to several hours after receiving a hit. 5) size and portability: Unlike IMS based devices which have to be a certain size, the AFP based Fido XT is small enough to integrate with the majority of commercially available robotic systems, and also has the potential to integrate onto UAV platforms. The current payload weighs 13.5 oz, with room to decrease in size.
