    TSX Venture Exchange symbol: FOX

    TORONTO, Sept. 4 /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 sale and installation of
its FT Pipeline Bending Monitoring System at eleven sites on two separate
pipelines to a major North American Gas Transmission company in British
Columbia.
    Sean Carr, Interim President & CFO of FOX-TEK said, "We are pleased to
have received this repeat order, and look forward to continue developing our
relationship with this particular client."
    A customer spokesperson added "We continue to be both satisfied and
impressed with FOX-TEK's FT fiber optic technology for monitoring pipeline
bending under geotechnical loading. The FT technology replaces the subjective
component of geotechnical risk assessment with hard data. Continuous
improvements to the sensor installation techniques make for simple
installations in any pipeline environment. We intend to continue to utilize
this technology at locations of moderate and high geotechnical risk to our
pipeline infrastructure. As a component of our pipeline integrity management
plan, the FT sensors contribute to improved public safety.
