Department of Homeland Secutiry Names EFJohnson TACCOM Contract Supplier.

IRVING, TEXAS – June 4, 2012 – EF Johnson
Technologies, Inc., one of the nation’s leading developers and manufacturers of
communications technology for emergency responders, has been named by the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) as part of an elite group of suppliers
eligible to provide DHS agencies and certain non-DHS agencies with mission
critical communications equipment including subscriber radios and
infrastructure equipment through a $3 billion Tactical Communications (TacCom)
contract. EFJohnson will be a TacCom contract supplier for a two-year period
from 2012 – 2014, with options for additional extensions that could extend the
contract through 2017.

TacCom is a multiple award Indefinite-Delivery,
Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) contract established in 2012 to help DHS purchase a
full array of tactical communications products, infrastructure and services for
mission critical, public safety communications. The total funds spent on
equipment through this contract may not exceed $3 billion, inclusive of
options.

“EFJohnson’s selection as a TacCom supplier by the
Department of Homeland Security reinforces our position as a provider of
high-quality, cost-effective mission critical communications equipment and
solutions. I am honored that we are included on this elite list,” said Andrew
Adams, president and CEO of EF Johnson Technologies, Inc. “I applaud the
department’s decision to maximize its purchasing power by issuing a multi-vendor
contract with provisions that allow small businesses to fairly compete. By
doing so, DHS will receive a great value for the highest-quality equipment
currently available in the communications marketplace.”

EFJohnson was identified as one of only three qualified
small business track suppliers for subscriber and infrastructure equipment,
which includes Project 25-compliant, digital two-way portable and mobile
radios, base stations and software. EFJohnson was also identified as an
approved vendor of equipment complementing the communications system
infrastructure, such as dispatch consoles and mobile radio control stations.

Agencies purchasing equipment from the TacCom contract
include the U.S. Coast Guard, the Transportation Security Administration, the
Federal Emergency Management Agency and U.S. Customs and Border Protection. In
addition, non-DHS agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Justice, Department
of State and the White House Communications Agency, may also procure tactical
communications equipment through the TacCom Contract.
