LocusFocus and EIM Selected for DOD’s Navy Innovative Technology Program

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 7, 2006 — Locus Technologies (Locus), the leader in environmental information management, today announced that it has been selected for by the US Navy’s Innovative Technology program. This applicability allows Locus to deploy environmental data management services for the Navy and other branches of the DOD. Locus’s selection is further endorsement of their environmental data management web portal “LocusFocus” and their award-winning, web-based Environmental Information Management™ (EIM™) system. EIM is the world’s most comprehensive environmental database management software system for the environmental industry.

After stringent technical review, Locus’s abstract was found eligible for the Navy’s Environmental BAA Program. The Locus abstract will be entered as part of “Book 20” into an on-line database, referred to as “DENIX,” the Defense Environmental Network and Information Exchange. DENIX is available to all DOD field activities seeking solutions for their environmental program needs.

“We are pleased to be able to support the Navy and other DOD branches with our innovative software environmental database management products, which are a part of the LocusFocus web portal,” said Dr. Neno Duplancic, President and CEO of Locus. “The DOD will now have access to the world’s largest on-line environmental database system. In addition, the LocusFocus Portal will also provide the Navy and other DOD branches with our full suite of environmental data management tools, including user-friendly GIS interface capabilities, workflow automation, and environmental field management software programs. Deployment of these online tools can provide the government end-user with substantial savings in routine environmental data management and long-term stewardship (LTS)
costs,” said Dr. Duplancic.
