                 accessible to the public, for example, a device mounted on the top of a large tower (or in a fenced enclosure) such

                 sales for these devices must be under a NDA restricting the disclosure of the propriety information, including
                 internal photos.
                 Users Manual may be held confidential only when the manual contains proprietary technical information intended
                 for professional technicians obligated under a NDA. All sales and distribution of the user’s manual must be under a

                 3. A statement that all sales of the non-consumer device will be under a NDA to include third party sales and that the
                    final user of the device is subject to the NDA.

Rationale for request for confidentiality:

We have invested considerable time and materials in research and development to produce the referenced
product.
   Permanent confidentiality: Disclosure of the permanently confidential portions of this application to
competitors would not only give them significant competitive advantages in developing similar products, but
would also disclose successful implementation of unpublished, leading edge technology developed by us.
   Short-term confidentiality: Disclosure of the short-term confidential portions of this application during
the period of importation and/or distribution would reveal key aspects of proprietary technology to
competitors and diminish the value of our investment in research and development.

If you have questions or need further information, please contact the undersigned.

Sincerely,
