San Antonio, March 12, 2007 - Nighthawk Systems, Inc. (OTCBB:NIHK), a leading provider of intelligent wireless power management and emergency notification solutions, announced that it has received an initial order for customized wireless power control units to be used by DaimlerChrysler to control the venting of heat in their Trenton, Michigan engine plant. The 2.1 million square feet plant covers 136 acres and contains hundreds of exhaust fans that control the venting of heat from the plant. DaimlerChrysler approached Nighthawk with the assistance of American Messaging, asking for help with remotely controlling the fans. Nighthawk is developing custom units that will be installed at the plant, allowing DaimlerChrysler to wirelessly control the exhaust fans from almost anywhere inside or outside of the plant.
The Nighthawk units will eliminate expensive wiring costs for DaimlerChrysler, and will enable plant officials to turn on and off the fans remotely in order to balance the amount of heat exiting the plant. This allows DaimlerChrysler to better manage the environment within the plant based on external factors such as weather as well as on internal factors, such as lighter product loads during holiday schedules.
H. Douglas Saathoff, Nighthawk Chief Executive Officer, stated, extremely pleased with the opportunity to assist DaimlerChrysler with this opportunity, and look forward to potentially building a larger relationship with them. The Nighthawk name is becoming more recognized as we assist more and larger companies with their control needs. It is also extremely pleased that our partnership with American Messaging has fostered this opportunity. Their existing relationship with DaimlerChrysler, as well as with Nighthawk, enabled this deal to come together. Our relationship with American Messaging is paying off as they expand our sales reach with their nationwide network of sales personnel that have existing relationships with enterprise customers that can benefit from using our products.?
In September 2006, Nighthawk announced that they and American Messaging had agreed to join forces to provide telemetry solutions to enterprise customers utilizing American Messaging's wireless network. American Messaging is the second-largest paging company in the United States with approximately 1.5 million customers, providing network coverage in 98 of the top 100 markets and in all 50 states.
