SBS Technologies, Inc. Announces a New Software Product Dataxpress™


SBS Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: SBSE) today announced the introduction of DataXpress&8482; , a new, unique data acquisition software product designed for the Microsoft Windows NT operating environment. This is being announced in conjunction with SBS Technologies Aerospace Groupís introduction of the alpha version of the software at the International Telemetry Conference in Las Vegas, NV this week. SBS anticipates that the early release version of DataXpress should be available in March 1998; the first commercial release is planned to be shipped at the end of June 1998. DataXpress acquires data from a variety of interfaces, displays the data in real-time using multiple, animated graphical views per screen, and distributes this information on a network. Because it can run on PCís, laptops and workstations, DataXpress can be easily and inexpensively expanded without sacrificing quality or capabilities. This new product is designed to meet the needs of telemetry ground and flight test applications, commercial and military avionics test and integration, and industrial automation applications. DataXpress can also expand existing data acquisition systems by providing object-oriented interfaces that enable system administrators and programmers to easily integrate DataXpress systems with the existing, third-party software applications. "DataXpress technology is the result of an SBS Technologies Corporate R&D program, the charter for which is to develop software that will support and unify the SBS Technologies existing product lines," said Steve Cooper, President and Chief Operating Officer. "The DataXpress software package makes high-performance, real-time data acquisition possible in a network environment on industry-standard PCís using the Windows NT platform. DataXpress provides our customers with a flexible, expandable and inexpensive solution. DataXpress will enhance the range of solutions we offer our customers, and is designed to accommodate future growth and technologies," Cooper continued.
