SAN ANTONIO, Texas, 21 January 2005. Nighthawk Systems, Inc. today announced that it sold and delivered PT1000 units to Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana this month.

Barksdale has utilized Nighthawk products for years, and will use the PT1000's primarily to wirelessly turn on and off navigational lights on runways and runway aprons.

The sale to Barksdale comes on the heals of the December sale of PT1000's to the Naval Air Warfare Center at China Lake, Calif., where NAVAIR uses the Nighthawk units to activate orientation lights across the entire test range, roughly the size of the State of Maryland, including one position on mountainous terrain over 6,500 feet.

"Our products continue to gain further acceptance in both the governmental and private sectors in part because of their reliability and ability to handle a wide variety of remote on/off applications," said H. Douglas Saathoff, Nighthawk's CEO.

"But perhaps most important is how easy our products are to use. Our products make even the most critical tasks as simple as flipping a light switch. I believe this will make our products commonplace in businesses and homes alike."
