American Signal Corporation (ASC) has been invited to present and activate Thailand's first Tsunami Warning System during Thailand's Tsunami Commemorative Ceremony being held on the anniversary of the Tsunami which occurred on December 26, 2004.

American Signal Corporation received an order from the Thailand ICT on September 6, 2005 to install the first phase of the Alert & Notification system with early warning capabilities for shore land beaches of the six Tsunami affected provinces.

Dale Moeller, President of American Signal Corporation, said, "We are extremely pleased to be involved with such an important project which will be the first of its kind in the area since the December 26, 2004 Tsunami. It is an honor to be such an important part of this overall forecasting and warning system and to be a meaningful partner with the Thai ICT and Meteorological Department."

Dale Moeller was proud of the team effort given to this priority project including ASC's Thai representative Raydant International, and Satamatics, the satellite communications provider of the INMARSAT D+ system.

When combined with ASC's recently announced awards for Alert & Notification systems being installed at Vermont Yankee nuclear and the nine nuclear facilities through out Illinois as well as many city and county wide systems throughout the U.S. and Asia, ASC is seeing a goal come true. That goal and mission throughout the ASC corporate structure is to "SAVE LIVES".

Chris Roller, the Sales Manager of American Signal, who will be presenting at the event added; "This event is to honor and remember the victims that have been affected by this catastrophic tragedy. I feel it is important to educate the citizens, as well as visitors, the new outdoor warning siren system will properly inform everyone within listening distance of another impeding disaster so appropriate measures may be taken."
