USA Signal Technology Targeting Homeland Security Applications for Its Wireless Video Surveillance System

Company Receives First Inquiry to Deploy Technology on Oil Rigs to Defend Against Vandalism, Trespassing and Terrorist Threats

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 21, 2006 -- USA Signal Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: USSG) ( has recently received interest in utilizing its Wireless Video Surveillance technologies in applications at remote oil field locations. The technology would be used to identify potential threats or attacks on oil rigs, personnel and equipment. The company is currently in discussions to install a test application with a potential customer located in Texas.

"Homeland security spending is alive and well, with Boeing having just received a multi-billion dollar contract from the Department of Homeland Security's technology component of its Secure Border Initiative (SBI) effort, SBInet. We believe that with the recent successful installation of our first Wireless Video Surveillance system for railway bridge surveillance and monitoring, USA Signal is opening the door to other applications of our core technologies, including homeland security, border protection and surveillance," commented Bob Stevenson, CEO of USA Signal Technology.

The USA Signal wireless video surveillance camera system monitors and records all activity around the rigs on which it would be installed. Utilizing the rig's existing infrastructure, high-resolution video of all activity, including normal operation and maintenance, is recorded and simultaneously sent wirelessly to a security office where the information is also recorded and can be viewed by security officers. The video recording is for use in legal proceedings following any illegal trespassing or vandalizing of the rig or site.

USA Signal's system utilizes VGA color video streams that are MPEG-4 and sent at the rate of 5 frames per second. Its cameras have low light capability so pictures are recognizable at night and record 48 hours of backup video in case the remote office system fails. The operating system software can display multiple video streams on a monitor remotely located at a security office, with the screen divided into quadrants. A security officer can select any quadrant for the specific picture to completely fill the screen. Each quadrant has a title block with location and time-stamp to identify which camera video stream is being displayed and recorded.

With the successful installation of its first Railway Bridge Surveillance and Monitoring System, USA Signal has begun to market it to the nation's other railroads.
