ST. JOHN'S, Canada, September 28, 2010 - Today, Rutter Inc. (TSX: RUT) announced that Canadian based Rutter
Technologies, a division of Rutter Inc. (TSX:RUT), has now received official
notification from the Norwegian Clean Seas Association (NOFO) confirming that
its Sigma S6 Oil Spill Response Radar is compliant with the NOFO standard.
The NOFO Standard applies to the design of and the equipment carriage
requirements for oil spill response vessels operating on the Norwegian
Continental shelf and is quickly becoming internationally accepted. Carriage
of oil spill detection radar having particular performance characteristics is
one of these requirements. As previously announced in a Company press release
dated June 16, 2010, Rutter's system proved itself as an effective tool for
automatic detection, outlining, and tracking oil spills, meeting all of these
requirements when slaved off standard navigation radar.
As a detection system, Rutter's Sigma S6 Oil Spill Response Radar proved
itself in the first and subsequent trials, outperforming other competing
systems also undergoing testing. Representing the culmination of a two year
development program, the successful implementation and testing of the
automatic detection, outlining, and tracking algorithm was the final step in
achieving NOFO compliance. With this certification, Rutter's system is one of
only two systems in the world currently meeting this standard.
