4 – Page 4 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Land Earth Station (LES)  State-of-the-art equipment by SED Systems  No longer on shared 10-year old equipment  Burum, Netherlands  AORW, AORE, IOR  Auckland, New Zealand  POR, PACC  24x7 Monitoring and Support by Stratos

6 – Page 6 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Message Options  From-Terminal  Burst: 10 bytes  Use all 10 bytes: “transparent” message*  Only use 9 bytes: “custom” position/status report  Only use 8 bytes: “standard” position/status report  Extended Burst: 25 bytes  “transparent” message*  To-Terminal  bytes user-defined message  Optional Terminal Acknowledgement Request  LES Acknowledgement * Transparent messages generated by external controller via RS232

7 – Page 7 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Position/Status Message Size  “Standard poll” messages built into DMR and SureLinx for ease of use  8 bytes contain basic position, I/O, status  1 byte Destination Address can be used for message routing  Adds flexibility – e.g. emergency messages processed by different server vs normal  1 byte Message Descriptor  Improves application efficiency – message labels distinguish events  Increases security – indicates if message generated by DMR or external device  “Custom poll” messages can be defined by customer  Use up to 9 bytes (including Destination Address)  Transparent messages generated by external controller  Can use full 10 or 25 bytes payload  Mobile applications can only use 25 bytes between +/- 50 latitude  Fixed applications “point” the antenna to use 25 bytes anywhere

8 – Page 8 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Latency  Latency is seen in two cases:  Poll/response:  Control station sends a message to-terminal and gets a reply  From-terminal:  Terminal or external controller generates & sends message  Normal operation and wakeup operation are different  IsatM2M enhancements relative to D+:  4x faster frame-rate (30s instead of 2 minutes)  Terminals do not need to return to Bulletin Board in most cases (saves up to 4 minutes on wakeup) LatencyD+IsatM2M Poll/response~ 6 min~ 3 min From-terminal – normal operation~ 2 min< 1 min From-Terminal – wakeup from sleep*~ 5 min~ 1 min * Non-GPS IsatM2M terminals will take as long as D+

9 – Page 9 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Benchmarking D+ vs IsatM2M  From Empirical tests AORW: Test CaseD+IsatM2M “Normal” return2:110:55 “Immediate” return0:160:07 To-terminal (Forward queue) 3:37 (2:30) 0:47 (0:35) Round-trip (“normal” return) 5:381:24 Round-trip (“immediate” rtn) 3:591:22

10 – Page 10 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Billing  Add IsatM2M service to an existing plan  New minimum monthly fee for IsatM2M terminals  No change to existing D+ pricing  New simplified plans available  To-Terminal messages simplified  $ Base + $/Byte, bytes (no small/large)  All equivalent to D+ “high” priority  From-Terminal messages simplified  Alarm messages billed as 3x normal

12 – Page 12 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Versa Gateway Values  Highly reliable and secure  Fully redundant, housed in secure data centre  24 x 7 monitoring with event notifications  SSL encryption between Versa and SP server  Easy-to-use  Web-based administration  Consolidates D+ and GPRS traffic  Flexible message delivery

13 – Page 13 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Versa Gateway  Versa Gateway manages:  Message Handling with terminals (sessions, ack., etc)  Administration (activate, de-activate, label, etc)  Billing records (by customer/group)  SP server access (send/receive, broadcast)  Replication, backup and recovery for all subsystems Administration Billing Control Stations Message Handling (MHS) SP Server(s) Interne t

15 – Page 15 CONFIDENTIAL – DO NOT DISCLOSE © 2007 SkyWave Mobile Communications Inc. Versa Gateway Details  Single server interface for all service options  DAP, DAP-XML  No change for D+ and IsatM2M 10-byte messages  Minor update for IsatM2M 25-byte message  Messages exchanged via Control Station  “Mailbox” like functionality  SP server acts as “client” to submit & retrieve  From-terminal messages can be delivered to multiple control stations  To-terminal messages can be broadcast to multiple terminals
