Homeland Defense Companies Demonstrate Products at Experience IT Show

8/5/2004 - Roaming Messenger (OTCBB: RMSG) reported that the company exhibited its breakthrough messaging technology at the Experience IT 2004 show, in Anaheim, CA, last week.

Co-sponsored by Electronic Data Systems (EDS), Government Technology magazine and the City of Anaheim, the conference featured the Enterprise Virtual Operations Center for emergency preparedness and public safety. Roaming Messenger and four other homeland defense oriented companies, including Microsoft, NexTel and Xybernaut, showcased their innovative technologies to more than 200 executive level government officials attending the conference. These officials – police and fire chiefs, mayors, city managers, and other decision makers – are at the senior level of city, county, state and federal agencies.

The conference was an opportunity for government officials and their industry counterparts to refine strategies for revamping the information technology (IT) infrastructure at the government level in order to make city, county and federal agencies more efficient for emergency management and day-to-day operations.

The host city, Anaheim, CA, is funded with a $10.4 million grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under the Urban Area Security Initiative (UASI). Anaheim is one of four working models/laboratories in the country currently deploying pilot programs funded by UASI. The City is building a foundational architecture and web-based portal, known as the Enterprise Virtual Operations Center (EVOC), which will be easily expandable and repeatable throughout the country. This showcase of technology in action, gives emergency responders and city leaders the tools and knowledge to share information and collaborate across roles and jurisdictions, coordinating comprehensive responses to the management of and recovery from crises.

Roaming Messenger exhibited its breakthrough messaging product for instantaneous, interactive interagency communication. Roaming Messenger’s unique technology can automatically track down the appropriate party on their various hand-held or desktop computing devices, moving from device to device, even escalating to the next person in the chain of command, until the information is delivered to the right person at the right time for decision making.

This technological ability is at the forefront of the Department of Homeland Security’s pursuit of “seamless communication” between responders and other emergency response personnel.

“Our Roaming Messenger technology was met with genuine receptiveness and enthusiasm”, said the company’s CEO, Mr. Jon Lei. “This was a fantastic show for us as we were speaking directly with decision makers, both in government and private sector. We are extremely excited about the reception we received and believe this bodes well for prospects for growth in the coming quarters”, concluded Mr. Lei.
