Global ePoint Aviation Division Receives FAA Supplemental Type Certification for all 737 Aircraft

Represents 48% of Total Boeing Fleet of Aircraft

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 19, 2005 — Global ePoint, Inc. (Nasdaq: GEPT – News), an innovative developer and manufacturer of homeland security solutions for aviation and law enforcement as well as financial, retail and industrial applications, today announced the AirWorks Division has received a new FAA Supplemental Type Certificate for its Cockpit Door Surveillance System (CDSS), which now spans the entire family of Boeing 737 aircraft (737–200 through 737–900) with two configurations.

Aviation Speed News states there are some 4,597 Boeing family 737’s flying in the world – spanning the 737–200 through 737–900 – which represents 48 percent of total Boeing aircraft flying today. It also noted 1,571 of these 737’s are operating within U.S. airlines

The original AirWorks Cockpit Door Surveillance System previously offered on 737–300 and 737–500’s consisted of two 6.4–inch touch–sensitive monitors, a system controller and one camera mounted directly outside the cockpit door – with two more cameras located in the forward galley (and up to 16 cameras throughout the aircraft overall). Cockpit monitors were located to the side and just forward of the pilots seated positions. This standard system configuration is currently installed and flying on over 100 Boeing 737 aircraft.

AirWorks has designed and introduced a new optional "single-monitor" 5–inch touch–sensitive system that installs in the overhead panel directly between the two pilots. The new condensed configuration allows either pilot to utilize the same monitor or to control the camera from either pilot position – and utilizes the same System Controller and cameras as in previously delivered 737 systems.

"Our continual investment in the CDSS Cockpit Door Surveillance System and its flexibility, and now, in these multiple applications as well, provides AirWorks the ability to meet any requirement for any model aircraft built by the Boeing or Airbus companies," said Ricky Frick, President of Global ePoint’s Aviation Division. "It allows us to immediately move forward with a customer without the barrier of new designs for installation or certification requirements."

"We have made this commitment to ensure that any mandate or requirement – by any regulatory agency anywhere in the world – can immediately be satisfied with our product and certification."

The Company’s Aviation division contains Global AirWorks, whose primary communications and security products include the Cockpit Door Surveillance System (CDSS), a digital electronic "flight bag" of all flight and on–board manuals and records for pilots and a Laptop Computer Power System for passengers and flight crews. AirWorks customers include airline major OEMs, such as AT&T Aviation, BAE Systems, In–flight Phone, L3 Communications, and Rockwell Collins; all major U.S. airlines; and all major international carriers, including ATA, Air China, Bombardier, Finnair, Varig, KLM, Lufthansa, and Cathay Pacific. AirWorks holds more than 40 supplemental type certificates (STC) certifying AirWorks as a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)–approved manufacturer and installer for a range of interior equipment and systems for a variety of commercial aircraft flying worldwide.
