Railways Success in Recovering Damages From Boat Collisions With Its Drawbridges Results in More Sales for USA Signal Technology's Wireless Video Surveillance Systems

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - July 16, 2007) - Florida East Coast Railway is purchasing and installing additional wireless video surveillance camera systems for its drawbridges from USA Signal Technology, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: USST) ( because the video evidence it captured has already enabled the Railway to recover substantial damages from boats and barges colliding with its bridges.

Boats and barges colliding with railway drawbridges are of great concern to the railroad industry. On a national level it occurs about once or twice a week, and can cost millions in annual repairs. The USA Signal video surveillance system provide railroads with documented visual evidence of any occurrence and enables it to seek restitution from the boat or barge owner that damaged its bridges.

The innovative wireless video surveillance camera system developed and sold by USA Signal, monitors and records all boat traffic approaching and passing under the railway drawbridges where it is installed. Utilizing the railroads existing infrastructure, high-resolution video of each barge or boat, including registration number and name, is recorded and simultaneously sent wirelessly to a security office where the information is recorded on a video server in high resolution and can be viewed by security officers.

USA Signal transmits high-resolution video from two camera heads with two cameras per head wirelessly to a server where the railway can view and record any damages that have occurred. It also captures high resolution 'snap-shots' that are emailed to a technician to pinpoint damage. If there isn't a DSL link with bandwidth high enough to send high-resolution video, it can transmit low-resolution continuous video images. USA Signal provides access to a Web Site so that any railroad personnel with access authority can view the live video streams or view any of the recorded history files.

The first wireless video surveillance camera system was installed for the Florida East Coast Railway about a year ago at its Stuart, Florida drawbridge and has proven essential to identifying colliding vessels and recovering damages. The next system is being installed at the end of June at a drawbridge in Fort Lauderdale, FL, with additional installations planned during 2007.
