Primordial Signs Distribution Agreement with NP2H

Primordial announced today that it has signed an agreement with NP2H to market, sell, and distribute commercial applications of the company's Ground Guidance® technology. Primordial provides vision system software for soldiers, officers, and firefighters. Ground Guidance is a component of these products that selectively routes travelers between points under a variety of terrain conditions.

"We are excited about this opportunity to tap into the commercial markets," said Randy L. Milbert, president of Primordial. "We initially designed Ground Guidance to route soldiers on their combat missions, but foresaw numerous commercial applications for geocachers, mountain bikers, ATV riders, park rangers, hunters, fishermen, cross country skiers, and outdoor enthusiasts. NP2H will help us realize that vision."

Ground Guidance  is slated for inclusion in the United States Army's upcoming Future Force Warrior (FFW) Early User Evaluation (EUE). Soldiers will use Ground Guidance  to navigate indoor and outdoor environments such as Military Operations on Urbanized Terrain (MOUT) facilities.

Through this partnership, NP2H will market and distribute to commercial markets Ground Guidance  products, which provide travelers with preferred routes to destinations while avoiding painstaking obstacles such as hills, cliffs, and marshes. Ground Guidance  is patent-pending technology originally designed to help soldiers plan strategic combat routes and avoid slow or dangerous areas. Military Ground Guidance automatically detects obstructions constructed by the enemy and frees commanders from issuing turn-by-turn directions. Commercial Ground Guidance will calculate routes that allow individuals to avoid difficult or harsh terrain.

"We specialize in strategy development and business development for small to mid-sized companies in defense and commercial sectors," said Michael Moore, senior partner of NP2H. "We plan on leveraging each company's capabilities by combining NP2H's expertise in understanding military technology and developing commercial applications with Primordial's Ground Guidance algorithms for routing travelers."
