VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA and SOUTHBOROUGH, MA, USA - Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ: BLDP; TSX: BLDP) announced that the company's subsidiary, Protonex, has received certification from the U.S. Government enabling its industry-leading SPM-622 (Squad Power Manager) and VPM-402 (Vest Power Manager) products to be exported under the Commerce Department's Export Administration Regulations, classification EAR99. With this classification, these products can be sold to allied military partners as well as commercial customers without the need for an export license.

Protonex Power Manager products enable military personnel, including Soldiers, Airmen and Marines, along with commercial users such as mountain climbers and other extreme sports enthusiasts to recharge GPS systems, laptops, night-vision goggles and virtually any other portable equipment from any military or civilian energy source. The Squad Power Manager is typically shared by 5-to-10 individuals while the Vest Power Manager is designed to be worn by a single individual.

Approximately 5,000 Power Manager units have been deployed by U.S. Special Operations Forces and dismounted infantry, with each unit significantly reducing the battery weight required in the field, while at the same time enhancing mission flexibility and capability.

The U.S. Department of Commerce EAR99 designation permits simplified and faster fulfillment of international purchase orders rather than the alternative Department of State regulations, known as ITAR (International Trafficking in Arms Regulations). As a result, the EAR99 designation is expected to increase the attractiveness of Protonex Power Manager products to prospective customers outside the U.S. in both military and commercial applications.

"We have achieved an important commercialization milestone for our SPM and VPM products," said Ray Summers, Protonex Director of Military Sales. "Special Operations Forces across Europe, for example, have seen the SPM and VPM in action with their American counterparts. We expect this development to increase our traction by opening select commercial market opportunities with the international military community."

Protonex Power Manager products are available from the Protonex website at www.protonex.com/shop-home and through U.S. Government procurement channels, including the General Services Administration.
