Opsens announces an order from BAE Systems



    QUEBEC, Oct. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - Opsens Inc. (TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE: OPS)
("Opsens") announced an order from BAE Systems, a world leader in the
aerospace and defence industry. The order is for the supply of RadSens-type
signal conditioners and OTG-R-type fiber optic temperature sensors. These
unique products, based on a patent-pending technology from Opsens, have been
specifically designed for Radio and Radar Radiation Hazards (RADHAZ)
applications, Hazard of Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO)
applications, and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) assessment applications.
    This order comes after the recent approval of these products obtained
from the Defence Ordnance Safety Group (DOSG), an organization of the United
Kingdom Ministry of Defence. The high performance of Opsens' SCBG
spectrophotometric technology, found at the heart of these products, is the
reason behind this sale. By securing this major order from BAE Systems, Opsens
will rapidly position itself as a key supplier for several other military and
industrial companies who are collaborating with BAE Systems in the design,
manufacture and production of Eurofighter Typhoon, the world's most advanced
swing role combat aircraft.
    According the Yves Plamondon, the VP of Sales and Marketing for the
military market, "The unique characteristics of these products support our
aggressive marketing efforts on very promising markets, such as those of the
military, avionics, and automobile sectors. The measurement solutions offered
by RadSens and the OTG-R sensor stand out from the competition by being immune
to mechanical vibration and fiber optic movement. RadSens also offers a very
high measurement rate of 1000 Hz (1000 samples/second). These products are a
must for all RADHAZ, HERO, EMC measurements, and ensure unparalleled precision
and stability of measurement. We are happy and proud to provide our products
to a client as prestigious as BAE Systems who is also a leader in this
industry."
