Chassis Plans Joins with The Marlin Alliance
for SeaPort-e Teaming

San Diego, Calif. - January 7, 2006 - Chassis Plans, The Original Industrial Computer Source™, has become a member of the SeaPort Enhanced (SeaPort-e™) team established by The Marlin Alliance, Inc., a leading provider of business transformation and process management services.

The Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) established the SeaPort Office to meet NAVSEA strategic sourcing objectives and performance based contracting directives while providing a comprehensive framework for NAVSEA Professional Support Services (PSS) acquisitions. The vision was to provide a faster, better, and cheaper means to procure PSS. The Navy Virtual SYSCOM (VS) Commanders (NAVAIR, NAVSEA, NAVSUP and SPAWAR) have all decided to leverage the successes and efficiencies of the SeaPort-e business model by designating SeaPort-e the vehicle of choice for future Engineering, Financial, and Program Management contractor support services.

"Chassis Plans' extensive track record in the design, manufacturing and integration of ruggedized computing platforms makes them an excellent partner for our SeaPort-e team," said Angela Bashenow, Vice President and Director of Strategic Relationships at The Marlin Alliance, Inc. "Their capabilities for tailoring and delivering complete hardware/software solutions provide a strong addition to the comprehensive services that we have brought together in our team."

"As a recognized leader in business process optimization, compliance and regulatory standards, the Marlin Alliance provides strong leadership for addressing the full spectrum of Navy procurement issues," said Mark Lovett President and CEO of Chassis Plans.
