Sensor network deployment delivered real-time atmospheric monitoring data at high profile event that drew more than 70,000 spectators and 135 million worldwide television viewers

SUNNYVALE, Calif. February 4, 2004 RAE Systems Inc. (AMEX: RAE), a leading global developer and manufacturer of rapidly-deployable, multi-sensor chemical and radiation detection monitors and networks for homeland security and industrial applications and Concept Controls, today announced that they provided public venue environmental monitoring and technical support at the 38th Super Bowl at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas. The Super Bowl has grown to become the quintessential American sports and media event, drawing more than 70,000 attendees and over 135 million television viewers from around the world.

RAE Systems has been called on to provide environmental monitoring at events like the World Series, the XIX Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the U.S. Open, Major League Baseballs All-Star Game, and most recently, the 115th Tournament of Roses Parade, said Robert I. Chen, president and CEO of RAE Systems. Our highly accurate, networked field-proven solutions provide public safety agencies the real-time, life-critical data they need to assess potentially dangerous situations and save lives.

We are pleased to have been asked to provide the local technical back-up for the Texas and Federal security agencies supporting this event, said Mike Segars of Concept Controls. The wireless AreaRAE is well suited to this type of rapid deployment application.

RAE Systems AreaRAE units were deployed as an ad-hoc network for perimeter monitoring around Reliant Stadium. The AreaRAE units contain data radios that enable real-time data transmission with a base controller located up to two-miles away from the detector. The AreaRAE is widely used by public safety teams around the U.S. due to its highly sensitive photo-ionization detector (PID) for parts-per-million measurement of volatile organic compounds and up to two electrochemical toxic sensors for measurement of specific toxic substances such as Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen Sulfide) H2S.
