State of Louisiana Department of Transportation Purchases USA Signal Technology's Energy Saving LED Traffic Signals

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - September 25, 2007) - USA Signal Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: USST) ( has received a Purchase Order from the Louisiana Department of Transportation & Development (LADOTD) after winning the bid for LED Traffic Signals. The LADOTD awarded the contract for 1,500 Traffic Signals to be used in the replacement of incandescent bulbs and for the installation of new intersections.

Earlier this year, the LADOTD had requested that USA Signal demonstrate the features of the ITIS system and particularly the self-kill feature, which allows the signal to turn itself off after it has determined that it no longer meets the minimum light output per the ITE (Institute of Traffic Engineers) specifications. The contract allows for up to three years of extension, with a potential for several million dollars in orders.

What makes USA Signal products different is that they fully comply with all of the requirements of the LADOTD. The specifications for qualification in the state of Louisiana require that an LED traffic signal turn itself off when the minimum light output is no longer met. USA Signal's micro-controlled traffic signals are programmed to analyze the light output every time they are turned on. Through the use of complex algorithms and truth tables, they monitor their own performance and when the signals ascertain that they no longer meet the minimum ITE light output they turn themselves off.

"USA Signal has received additional purchase orders from distributors and contractors in the state of Louisiana because it manufactures the only approved product line that fully meets the required specifications," said Bob Stevenson, USA Signal's president and CEO. "We believe that many more contractors and distributors will be placing orders as the requirements of each Parish becomes due. Also, the contract let by the state has a fixed price for the next three years and indicates that their average usage is of 6,000 signals annually."
