    TORONTO, Sept. 11 /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 second sale of a FT
Pipeline Bending Monitoring System to a client headquartered in Calgary.
FOX-TEK has installed and commissioned five sites for the owner / operator in
British Columbia. This system uses FT fiber optic strain gages at all five of
the sites to monitor pipeline deformation; and a portable, battery-powered
sensor monitor to acquire and log the data.
    Sean Carr, Interim President & CFO of FOX-TEK said, "FOX-TEK is committed
to providing rapid and accurate data that will help support a quick response.
Our engineers will analyze the data acquired by our client at all five sites
and alert the operator of any significant deformation. This installation
further illustrates our client's commitment to public safety through the
monitoring of high consequence areas."
    FOX-TEK would also like to correct the August 26, 2008 press release
regarding the grant of a total of 660,000 options to the directors. The
effective date for this grant was reported as August 12, 2008 instead of the
actual effective date of September 10, 2008. The options vest in six equal
quarterly installments and expire five years from the date of grant. The
number and price of the options remain the same as previously reported.
