TASER International's EVIDENCE.COM and AXON Win 2009 Innovation AwardsSCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 6, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TASER International, Inc. (Nasdaq:TASR), today announced that both the TASER® AXON™ and EVIDENCE.COM™ were honored with 2009 Innovation Awards presented by the Cygnus Law Enforcement Group during the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) annual conference in Denver, CO.

TASER International's first foray into Software as a Service (SaaS), EVIDENCE.COM, won in the Software category, while the TASER AXON took top honors in the Computer category, beating out tough competitors like Panasonic. AXON integrates with EVIDENCE.COM to protect truth through a revolutionary end-to-end integrated solution to securely capture, transfer, store, and analyze digital evidence.

"We are honored to receive this recognition for our innovative new product offerings," said Rick Smith, CEO of TASER International. "Over the past two years, we have invested heavily to transform our company into a full solution provider. A year ago, few people would have envisioned TASER International receiving the top innovation awards in the computer and software space for law enforcement. This recognition helps to validate these new products which expand our service offering to our customers and propels TASER International's expansion in new business markets."

EVIDENCE.COM is a world-class, Web 3.0 cloud computing service providing secure storage and groundbreaking analytic capabilities. It is a full featured SaaS system designed around easy-to-use dashboards that turn geospatial multi-media evidence, such as GPS tagged video, into visual dashboards and analytic maps with seamless click-through to underlying video data.

TASER® AXON™ is an on-officer tactical computer and audio-video recorder that captures incidents from the officer's perspective. With AXON, law enforcement agencies now have the ability to show administrators and jurors exactly what the officer saw. The AXON system is designed to integrate seamlessly into existing law enforcement radio communications equipment, providing two-way communication in addition to full audio-video recording from a head camera the size and weight of a standard Bluetooth® headset. In addition, AXON has integrated GPS for tracking officer location to enhance situational awareness and officer safety.

AXON, together with EVIDENCE.COM, will protect truth through an end-to-end integrated solution to securely capture, transfer, store, and analyze digital evidence. This platform enables tactical and strategic decision making by law enforcement, as well provides court admissible evidentiary data.

The Innovation Awards, presented by the Cygnus Law Enforcement Group, recognize new products and services introduced to the law enforcement market during the previous year. Manufacturers submitted their newest and most innovative products for evaluation from a panel of independent judges composed of law enforcement professionals.
