    Proven Success and Adapting to Customer Needs are Key Factors

    TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

    TORONTO, Jan. 28 /CNW Telbec/ - Fiber Optic Systems Technology, Inc.
("FOX-TEK"), (TSX-V: FOX), a developer and manufacturer of patented
non-intrusive sensing systems, today announced a repeat order from one of our
major Canadian oil and gas clients.
    Dr. Essam Zaghloul, president and CEO of FOX-TEK said, "We've just
received another order of a complete remote system for a major Canadian
customer. We've been asked to supply a special system adapted to an area of
concern on a field bend of a six inch pipeline. We are scheduled to install
the system in February."
    Sam Cauchi, Director of Sales for North America added "This installation
demonstrates the flexibility of the PinPoint system and our ability to rapidly
meet our customers' needs. Thanks to our new modular sleeve design, we can now
accommodate non-straight sections of pipe without requiring any costly
shutdowns to production."
    Eric Kubian, CTO at PinPoint said, "Our customer wants us to provide
information about corrosion rates and the integrity of the pipeline. Without
our system, a likely option for the operator would be to halt production,
shutdown the pipeline, and schedule a repair. This demonstrates our ability to
increase the service life of critical operational assets. Our solution helps
the customer make informed, cost-effective decisions pertaining to pipeline
maintenance."
