Analogic Corporation Receives Order to Install Four AN6400 EXACT System Upgrade Kits

Business Editors/Technology Editors

PEABODY, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sept. 26, 2006–Analogic
Corporation (NASDAQ: ALOG) announced today that it has received an
order from L-3 Communications’ (NYSE: LLL) subsidiary, L-3
Communications Security and Detection Systems, Inc., to install four
AN6400 EXACT (EXplosive Assessment Computed Tomography) upgrade
kits in-line and fully networked at John Wayne Airport in Orange
County, California, as part of the U.S. Transportation Security
Administration’s (TSA) Operational Unit Evaluation (OUE). The AN6400
was developed under the TSA’s Phoenix Program and was certified as an
upgrade to the AN6000 EXACT system. The AN6400 EXACT is the heart of
L-3 Communications’ eXaminer 3DX® 6500D, a TSA-certified Explosives
Detection System (EDS). Over 650 eXaminer systems are installed in
airports around the world to screen checked luggage.

This major system upgrade incorporates significant advances in
technology and detection capability. The AN6400 has increased
throughput efficiency to scan more than 550 bags per hour, and a
dual-energy system that enhances detection and decreases false-alarm
rates. Other new features include advanced on-line diagnostics and
fully integrated “any-to-any” networking capabilities.

John Wood, Analogic’s President and CEO, said, “These upgraded
systems will showcase what our engineers have accomplished in terms of
increased detection and higher throughput. With our new advanced
workstation and networking capability, we believe we have
significantly raised the bar in checked luggage inspection and set new
industry standards going forward.”

A new, sophisticated Analogic workstation provides improved,
high-resolution, 3-D images of the entire contents of a bag and
archives those images for up to 48 hours. For closer inspection of
suspicious items, the operator can rotate the image onscreen with the
touch of a finger.

Installation is expected to begin at John Wayne Airport in early
October. Following completion of the OUE, Analogic will be able to
provide AN6400s to the TSA through L-3 Communications, either as
complete, upgraded systems or as upgrade kits for EDSs already in the
field. Over the next several years, the government is expected to
upgrade many in-line systems with the kits.

Analogic Corporation is a leading designer and manufacturer of
advanced health and security systems and subsystems sold primarily to
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). The Company is recognized
worldwide for advancing the state of the art in Computed Tomography
(CT), Digital Radiography (DR), Ultrasound, Magnetic Resonance Imaging
(MRI), and Patient Monitoring.
