SteelCloud Delivers Special Servers to Military

Testing for Use in Military Land and Sea Vehicles

HERNDON, VA–( EMWNews – April 1, 2008) – SteelCloud, Inc. (NASDAQ: SCLD), a manufacturer

of embedded integrated computing systems for the industrial automation

marketplace (“SteelCloud”), today announced that it is providing rugged

COTS servers with Mil-Spec I/O connectors for the United States Marine

Corps and Navy spiral development programs at the Naval Surface Weapons

Center in Dahlgren, Virginia.

These servers provide unique, high-performance processing for the Navy’s

Gunslinger and related programs. The use of Mil-Spec connectors on rugged

COTS servers promotes the military’s new directives to use hardened server

products in place of the more expensive VME and CompactPCI computers

currently used in war zones. Additionally, these servers offer the latest

processing technology and performance that will significantly improve

soldiers’ ability to respond to enemy fire in protected environments (such

as vehicles) by using computer equipment to detect and respond to enemy

fire without direct exposure.

The Navy plans to test these systems in “live fire” demonstrations in a

HUMVEE application. “Since these development systems offer the potential to

provide field troops a much higher level of protection in combat

situations, we believe that SteelCloud’s participation will extend into

similar spiral programs for Stryker and Cougar MRAP vehicles and Special

Forces watercraft,” said Robert Frick, SteelCloud’s President and CEO.

“After developing this product for the Gunslinger program, SteelCloud has

seen significant interest from other Navy commands and its prime

integrators to provide additional rugged COTS server products with Mil-Spec

connectors for other shipboard, submarine and landing craft applications.”
