APSG Receives Over $18 Million in New Order During May and June 2002

7/17/2002 - Applied Signal Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: APSG) announced today that it has received over $18 million in new orders during the months of May and June 2002. These orders are for a variety of signal intelligence products and services.

Mr. Gary Yancey, President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “Since the September 11th attack, the counter-terrorism campaign has been concentrating on the administration of the war and the replacement of expendables. Our assumption has been that the emphasis would shift towards proactive efforts to prevent such attacks in the future and that this would include emphasis on better intelligence gathering. The recent Congressional investigations of U.S. intelligence gathering processes and the emphasis that President Bush is placing on Homeland Security seem to be supporting this scenario.”

Mr. Yancey went on to say, “We believe the major increase in orders for the first two months of this quarter are also a direct result of the emphasis on intelligence gathering. We are optimistic that there will be a continued increase in orders into the foreseeable future. Indeed, the U.S. Government cannot take the risk of reducing investments in intelligence gathering.” Mr. Yancey concluded his remarks, “I believe the spending trend by the U.S. Government will continue into the foreseeable future, which should bode well for Applied Signal Technology.” Applied Signal Technology, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures and markets advanced digital signal processing equipment to collect and process a wide range of telecommunications signals for signal reconnaissance applications.
