China Information Security Technology, Inc. Wins $4.6 Million in Contracts for Aerophotogrammetrical Surveys and Digital Mapping

SHENZHEN, China, July 29 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Information Security Technology, Inc., (NASDAQ: CPBY) ("China Information Security," "CIST" or the "Company"), a leading provider of Information Security and 3S (Geographic Information Systems -- GIS, Global Positioning Systems -- GPS and Remote Sensing -- RS) services in China, today announced that the Company has been awarded two contracts to construct aerophotogrammetrical surveys and digital maps for China's Bureau of Land and Resources. One contract, for the city of Nanning, in Guangxi Province, is valued at $1.3 million and the other contract for the city of Jiaxing, in Zhejiang Province, has a contract value of $3.3 million. CIST expects the contracts to be completed by October 2008.

The contracts will require production of Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and Digital Orthophoto Quadrangles (DOQs), which are often used in Geographic Information Systems. A DEM is a digital representation of ground surface topography or terrain. Commonly built using remote sensing techniques or from land surveying, DEMs are the most common basis for digitally-produced relief maps. A DOQ is an aerial photo that has been geometrically corrected, or orthorectified, such that the scale of the photograph is uniform, meaning that the photo can be considered equivalent to a map. An orthorectified aerial photo, or orthophotograph, can be used to measure true distances, because it is an accurate representation of the earth's surface, having been adjusted for topographic relief, lens distortion and camera tilt. DOQs can also be used in many different fields, such as city planning, environmental protection, farming, water conservancy, emergency coordination, public security and city management.

For Nanning, the Company will acquire true color digital images of the city with a total area of 2200 square kilometers. It will then create a 1:2000 DEM and DOQ. This project will provide basic working maps for continuous land surveying and acreage calculations. In Jiaxing, the Company will acquire digital images of the city with a total area of 450 square kilometers. Its GIS platform will create a 1:500 DEM and DOQ, producing high precision map data that should improve land management efficiency, while meeting the city's current stringent requirements.

"These contract wins further demonstrate the synergies that we have generated from holding both the Level A Certificate of Surveying & Mapping and Computer System Integration Level One Qualification licenses," commented Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, CEO of China Information Security. "We believe that our comprehensive GIS-related services distinguishes us from other companies in China's 3S market and will allow us to execute our national market expansion plans and strengthen our brand recognition. We hope that these RS contracts will provide us with greater opportunity to win future follow-on contracts as China's city landscapes continue to change in the wake of the country's rapid economic growth."
