OSI Geospatial Signs Contracts Valued at $1.1M with Canadian Navy to Enhance Port Security Operations

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2008) - OSI Geospatial Inc. (TSX:OSI) announced today that its International Systems Operations has signed contracts totaling approximately $1.1 million with the Canadian Navy. Under the terms of these contracts, OSI will deliver its ACT small boat command, control and information systems ('C2IS') to support port security and maritime interdiction operations. The systems have been delivered and will be installed in shore based facilities and on small patrol boats over the next few months.

"We are pleased to have the Canadian Navy as our first customer to embrace our advanced small boat command, control and information system," said Ken Kirkpatrick president and CEO of OSI Geospatial. "The majority of our customers have been conducting operational trials of this new technology and feedback has been very positive. We believe that we can build on this success to develop future business for the company."

The ACT system is a complete command, control and information solution that includes the provision of secure transmission of mission critical information between small patrol vessels, mother ships, air borne assets and land based facilities. It is designed to provide military and security operations the ability to track and analyze a wide range of assets and ensure close command and control of these assets in demanding and fast paced situations. The system addresses the unique demands of Maritime Interdiction and Port Security Operations. These demands include the requirement of real-time situational awareness for the protection of critical assets.

The ACT system with our world leading ECPINS® software at its core can be installed as a stand-alone system or integrated into an existing ECPINS® installation. The company has installed or been contracted to install ECPINS® systems on more than 300 warships worldwide.
