SUNNYVALE, Calif. January 12, 2005 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, today released a white paper detailing the successful results of a series of container security device tests conducted at sea during October and November, 2004.

The trials, conducted on regularly scheduled shipping runs between Oakland, California and Honolulu, Hawaii, were designed to investigate sensor and networking behavior in real-world conditions, specifically in regard to environmental characteristics and performance; event simulation and detection; and data logging and reporting.

Central to the trials was RAE Systems RAEWatch, a wireless sensor bundle, designed to be permanently installed in containers for end-to-end supply chain logistics. With IEEE 802.15.4 compliant architecture, RAEWatch networks are immune to interference from radio sources such as Wi-Fi and cell phones, and have a one to two-year lifespan when used in temporary, battery-powered deployments. The RAEWatch networks in the trial provided radiation, temperature and intrusion data and are expandable to include a variety of other sensors.

The Department of Homeland Security has stressed that a multi-layered approach of integrated, coordinated technology and regulatory approaches should be used to effectively secure the supply chain, said Rudy Mui, vice president of marketing for RAE Systems. The RAEWatch sea trials have effectively proven that the technology is available now to address the security needs of containers in harsh maritime environments.
