CalAmp Selected to Provide Key Component for GE Security's New Fleet Tracking Service

12/20/06

OXNARD, Calif. & BRADENTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 20, 2006--CalAmp Corp. (Nasdaq:CAMP), a leading provider of wireless products and engineering services, and GE Security, Inc., a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of the General Electric Company (NYSE:GE), today announced that CalAmp will provide a key system component for GE Security's new mobile resources management service, NavLogix(TM). CalAmp's product shipments are expected to commence this month in support of GE Security's roll-out of its fleet tracking service to medium and large-sized enterprises.

As part of the agreement, CalAmp will provide GE Security with its GPS-based Location Messaging Unit, the LMU-4000. The LMU-4000 features leading-edge technology in an affordable location device, with the configurability and flexibility to adapt to changing customer requirements. CalAmp's LMU-4000 enables NavLogix to meet a wide range of fleet requirements including vehicle tracking, advanced input/output controls, and integration with on-board equipment.

"We are pleased to have been selected to supply our award winning LMU-4000 as GE Security commercializes its new fleet tracking service," said Fred Sturm, President and Chief Executive Officer of CalAmp. "Businesses with fleets of vehicles have become increasingly focused on optimizing the productivity of their assets in the field. CalAmp's mobile resource management products help enable vehicle tracking services such as GE's NavLogix. This is a market that we believe has significant growth potential as enterprise customers look to more efficiently manage their mobile workforce. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with GE Security."

"CalAmp is an important partner as GE Security rolls out its new mobile resources management service," said David Nark, Program Leader for the NavLogix offering with GE Security. "Flexibility, reliability, and maintainability were key drivers in our decision to use the LMU-4000. Other tracking units tested didn't match the LMU's dependability and configurability. We have confidence in the device because the LMU is installed in over 1,000 GE vehicles."
