Genasys Inc. Selected to Power Nationwide Public Warning System for Slovenia

Genasys® National Emergency Warning System (NEWS) to Help Protect More than 5 Million Residents and Annual Visitors

SAN DIEGO, CA – January 26, 2022 – Genasys Inc. (NASDAQ: GNSS), the global leader in critical communications systems and solutions, today announced that Slovenia selected Genasys’ National Emergency Warning System (NEWS) to help keep more than 2 million residents and 3 million annual visitors safe and informed during emergencies and other critical events.

Slovenia will deploy Genasys’ next generation NEWS software that supports and transmits Location-based SMS and Cell Broadcast alerts for regional and countrywide public warning. Slovenia will utilize NEWS to ensure the country meets the Article 110 European Electronic Communications Code requirements to implement and launch a comprehensive public warning system.

“We are honored to have been selected to power Slovenia’s nationwide Public Warning system,” said Richard Danforth, Chief Executive Officer of Genasys Inc. “We’ll be working with the Department of Defense of Slovenia, the Administration of the Republic of Slovenia for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief, and Slovenia’s mobile telecom operators on the rapid implementation of the system.

“NEWS leverages existing telecom infrastructure to reach everyone within an at-risk geographic area with no opt-in required,” Mr. Danforth added. “The powerful geo-location capabilities of NEWS empower emergency management officials to send hyper-specific instructions to populations in danger and monitor shelter-in-place compliance and evacuation progress.”

In addition to Location-based SMS and Cell Broadcast alerting, the NEWS Public Warning system will include a mobile application for Slovenia’s residents and visitors to receive geo-located warnings on Android and iOS phones. NEWS will also enable alerts and warnings through TV, radio, digital signage, social networks, and email.

“NEWS’ advanced, container-based architecture is built to support future emergency warning system requirements, including 5G,” Mr. Danforth continued. “NEWS is fully compliant with data privacy regulations and empowers public safety agencies to send alerts to any mobile phone in near real time without sharing names, phone numbers, or other personal data.”

Mr. Danforth concluded, “This contract with Slovenia, and our on-going contracts with mobile network operators in Australia that have resulted in more than 180 million SMS emergency notifications sent through NEWS since 2012, have Genasys well-positioned for additional Public Warning system business in the EU and in other areas of the world.”
