MDA Facilitates Access To U.K. Property Information Used For Conveyancing

Richmond, B.C. - MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSX: MDA), a provider of essential information solutions, announced today that it has increased access to its National Land Information Service (NLIS) web-based Channel by offering a human interface for U.K. solicitors who are not web-enabled.

In the past, MDA only accepted property search orders submitted online via its NLIS Channel. However, a substantial number of U.K. law firms do not have Internet access. These solicitors, who typically request property-related searches via traditional methods such as mail, can now access MDA's Channel by fax or mail to expedite multiple search requests.

Once MDA receives a solicitor's order via traditional means, its staff will carry out the searches electronically via the Company's NLIS Channel web site. A solicitor can transfer to directly using the Internet to access MDA's NLIS Channel at any time.
