Sutron Corporation Posts Record Customer Orders for 2009 & 2010 YTD

STERLING, VA--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) - Sutron Corporation (NASDAQ: STRN), a leading provider of hydrological, meteorological and oceanic monitoring products, systems, software and services, announced today that during January 2010, the company received bookings totaling $1,369,609. About half of these bookings, $676,146, consisted of a purchase order from the Kenya Meteorological Department of the Republic of Kenya for supply and installation of 36 Automatic Weather Stations. Purchase orders from various Canadian organizations generated about a quarter of the January bookings.

Sutron is also pleased to announce that 2009 Total Bookings were the highest ever, a record-breaking $25,168,690. In December 2009 Sutron received a $586,399 contract to provide a hydro-meteorological monitoring network in the Dominican Republic for CDEEE, the Dominican state-owned company that controls electric generation and distribution, manages electric supply contracts with independent producers and carries out state programs to supply electricity to low-income communities throughout the Dominican Republic. Looking ahead, Sutron expects that the strong business momentum that drove record bookings in 2009 will catapult sales to an even higher level in 2010.

Headquartered in Sterling, Virginia with offices throughout the USA, Sutron Corporation was founded in 1975.
