Neah Power Names Retired Marines Lt. Gen. Carol Mutter and Col. James Mutter to Strategic Advisory Board

BOTHELL, WA | Posted on February 27th, 2008

Neah Power Systems, Inc., (OTCBB:NPWS), a leading developer of fuel cells for military application and portable electronic devices, announced today that it has named retired marines Lieutenant General Carol Mutter and Colonel James Mutter to its Strategic Advisory Board, which is responsible for advising Neah Power's management.

Colonel James Mutter joins the Company's Strategic Advisory Board after a distinguished 36-year military career with the US Marine Corps, including five years in USMC research, development, test and evaluation positions, about 15 years in senior command and control positions in both field and garrison, and also several tours as Chief of Staff at various commands. Following his military career, Col. Mutter was Sr. VP for Administration at Sensys Corp in D.C., has consulted with a number of military support contractors, and was President of the National Military Family Association. In 1998, he received the civilian US Navy Distinguished Public Service Award. After graduating from University of New Mexico in 1961, and serving two tours of duty in Vietnam, Col. Mutter was selected to attend graduate school and earned a Masters Degree in Financial Management at George Washington University.

Lieutenant General Carol Mutter joins Neah Power's Strategic Advisory Board after a celebrated 31-year career with the US Marine Corps where she retired as a Lieutenant General in 1999. General Mutter possesses 13 years of experience in military research, development and acquisition in addition to her experience in financial management, logistics, personnel administration, and equal opportunity. She was appointed by the President of the U.S. to the American Battle Monuments Commission, and currently serves on the National Advisory Council of The Alliance for National Defense, on the Advisory Board of the Indiana Council on World Affairs, on the Indiana State (legislative) Commission on Military and Veterans Affairs, and participates as a Senior Fellow at the Joint Forces Staff College in Norfolk, VA. More recently, Gen. Mutter has been a consultant for companies including IBM (NYSE: IBM), Raytheon Co. (NYSE: RTN), Revision Eyewear, as well as virtual training and nanotechnology organizations, directly contributing to their relationships with and success in obtaining government contracts. Gen. Mutter earned two masters degrees; one from Salve Regina University and the other from Naval War College, and has been awarded two honorary doctorate degrees.

"We are delighted that General Mutter and Colonel Mutter have chosen to join our Strategic Advisory Board at this exciting stage," said Dr. Chris D'Couto, President and CEO of Neah Power. "Their strong military research and development backgrounds are particularly relevant to help Neah Power succeed in this market segment. The power requirements of the military continue to grow, and our technology will be uniquely positioned to meet many of these needs. We look forward to the Mutters' insightful contributions and counsel as members of Neah Power's Strategic Advisory Board."

The Mutters have written, "We are impressed with Neah Power's approach to micro fuel cell design utilizing porous silicon and the potential to meet a number of portable energy challenges faced by our nation's military. When you combine that potential with the Company's commitment to implementing innovative solutions to traditional problems facing portable power, you have a solution that military and consumer markets will be able to embrace with confidence. We are looking forward with great enthusiasm to working with Neah Power as they move through their commercialization efforts."

The Mutters join a distinguished team of Neah Power's Strategic Advisory Board including Dr. Reza Abhari, professor of energy technologies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich; Joseph R. Bronson, President and COO of Sanmina Corporation; former astronaut Buzz Aldrin; and renowned futurist Peter Schwartz.

About Neah Power Systems, Inc.
Neah Power Systems, Inc. (NPWS) is developing long-lasting, efficient and safe power solutions for portable electronic devices, including notebook PCs, military radios and other power-hungry products. The market size for portable power is estimated in the multi-billion dollar range by the research group Frost and Sullivan. Neah Power uses a unique, patented, silicon-based design for its micro fuel cells that enable higher power densities. This enables lighter-weight, smaller form-factors and lower cost products, as well as an outsourced manufacturing model.

The company’s working micro fuel cell prototype, which was demonstrated on September 28, 2007, runs as a closed-loop system without requiring air as an oxidant. As Neah Power pursues the broader military market for fuel cells, it will leverage this characteristic unique to its porous silicon technology to pursue these anaerobic applications, addressing a market whose needs are currently not being met.
