Numerica Corporation Celebrates 15 Years of Innovation

Today Numerica Corporation celebrates 15 years in business as a thriving and globally recognized research and
development leader.

Numerica was founded in 1996 by Colorado State University applied math professor Dr. Aubrey B. Poore to take his revolutionary target tracking technology from academia to the industrial marketplace. Since that time, Numerica has received local, regional, statewide and national awards honoring the company and its employees for exceptional innovation, leadership, reliability, customer service, entrepreneurship and growth.

As one of the first tech-transfer companies to spin out of the CSU Research Foundation, Numerica has enjoyed consistent growth every year since its incorporation, recording 154 percent revenue gains between 2006 and 2010.

Today, nearly 50 employees in Colorado and California provide state-of-the-art algorithm and software development in the areas of integrated air and missile defense, video tracking, cyber security, geospatial information systems, chemical and biological detection, and space situational awareness.

The company will mark its 15th anniversary by hosting a birthday celebration for its world-class employees who are the driving force behind Numerica’s past, current and future success.

“Our team at Numerica consistently takes on the challenges which allow us to achieve at the national level,” said Numerica president Jeff Poore. “Our longevity is the result of the hard work, creativity and dedication of every Numerican.”

Numerica Wins $3 Million ABIR Contract

Numerica recently won a two-year, $3 million contract from the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) to develop an Airborne Infrared
(ABIR) multi-sensor correlation and fusion solution as part of a broader systems integration effort that will enhance the nation’s defense against ballistic missile attack.

The $3 million contract is the largest Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project ever awarded to Numerica.

The MDA protects United States territories, as well as those of U.S. allies, against ballistic missile attack, whether accidental, unauthorized or deliberate. The MDA’s current Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is comprised of a range of components, which are integrated by the Command, Control, Battle Management and Communications (C2BMC) system.

The C2BMC currently links and globally synchronizes individual missile defense systems to provide an optimized and layered missile defense against threats of all ranges and in all phases of flight. The Numerica-developed Multiple Hypothesis Correlator (MHC) and the BMDS Launch Event Associator (BLEA) tracking technologies already play important roles in the C2BMC system. Through the newly awarded MDA contract, Numerica will research key ABIR sensor integration technology that will enhance C2BMC’s ability to improve situational awareness and strengthen the nation’s defense.

“Numerica is proud of our ongoing contributions to the nation’s missile defense system,” said Numerica President Jeff Poore. “We’re honored that MDA selected our team of scientists to offer an innovative solution for the challenging problem of ABIR sensor integration for C2BMC.”

Principle investigators for the contract are Numerica CEO Aubrey B. Poore, Ph.D., and Numerica Program Director Shawn Herman, Ph.D.

Numerica Named One of Nation’s Best Small Businesses

Numerica has received the 2011 Tibbetts Award from the U.S. Small Business Administration
(SBA) at a ceremony this morning in the nation’s capitol, followed by a reception at the White House.

The Tibbetts Award honors companies from across the country that exemplify the very best in the SBA’s Small Business
Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Numerica is one of only 44
Tibbetts Award winners nationwide. Winning companies were selected based on exceptional innovation, national
research and development (R&D) advancement, job and revenue growth, and broader benefits to their economic

According to the National Small Business Association, the SBIR program was enacted by Congress in 1982 as a way to
meet the nation’s growing technology needs using the proven innovative power of small, technology-based companies.
Since that time, the SBIR program has been renewed by Congress five times, is hailed as the nation’s largest source of
early-stage R&D funding, is responsible for more than 50,000 patents and now generates new patents at the
astonishing pace of seven per day. In 1992, Congress established the STTR program, which is similar in structure to SBIR
but funds cooperative R&D projects involving small businesses and nonprofit or academic research institutions.

Numerica has been awarded four STTR and 63 SBIR Phase I and II government contracts since 2002, directly supporting
a rich collaboration between industry and academic partners and speeding the transition from research to application.
Fueled in part with support from the SBIR program, Numerica has achieved double-digit primary job growth at the
company’s three locations in Loveland, Colo., Dayton, Ohio, and Pasadena, Calif., and 154 percent revenue growth over
the last four years.

“This is a proud day not only for Numerica Corporation, but also for Northern Colorado,” said Sean Greene, Associate
Administrator for Investment and Senior Advisor for Innovation at the SBA. “Companies like Numerica represent the
best in American ingenuity.”

Congressman Cory Gardner (R-CO) offered Numerica his congratulations. “Innovative businesses, like Numerica, reflect
the entrepreneurial strength and spirit of Northern Colorado,” said Gardner. “It is my hope that Numerica continues
bringing together some of the best and brightest minds to solve our nation’s most difficult scientific problems.”

“The SBIR program provides Numerica and other small businesses the opportunity to make profound scientific
advances that serve as the foundation for solutions we transition to our customers,” said Numerica President Jeff
Poore. “Being selected as a 2011 Tibbetts Award winner is a proud moment for our entire team – employees and
collaborators alike. The SBIR program’s support of our research will serve as a cornerstone of Numerica’s success for
years to come.”
