FOX-TEK Announces completion of training and the purchase of Two systems by a large Saudi based Oil Company



    TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

    TORONTO, Aug. 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc.
("FOX-TEK"), (TSX-V: FOX), a developer and manufacturer of patented
non-intrusive sensing systems, today announced the completion of a
client-training program for PinPoint system installation and DMAT software
use, along with a purchase order for two PinPoint EFM systems. The two systems
are due to be shipped before the end of Q3, pending completion of the required
customs and shipping documentation.
    The seven day course for end-user installation of PinPoint systems and
application of the associated DMAT software was provided to an employee of the
Saudi Arabian Oil Company and a staff member of our regional distribution
partner, Zamil Group, a Saudi Arabian-based supplier of industrial, commercial
and consumer solutions and services. The purpose of the training was to
provide our end user and the distributor with the knowledge required to
completely install, utilize and interpret the data for the two systems, and
future potential systems, independent of FOX-TEK.

    This order represents two important milestones:

    
    - The initial sale of PinPoint EFM systems in the Middle East, and
    - The first training course offered by FOX-TEK that provides
      third-parties with the knowledge required to install and configure
      systems independent of FOX-TEK.
    

    "This last milestone becomes increasingly important as repeat orders for
multiple systems are placed by existing clients", said Sean Carr, President &
CFO.
