CyboSoft Receives 2007 Frost & Sullivan
Technology Leadership Award

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., January 25, 2008 - CyboSoft today announced that it has been recognized by Frost & Sullivan as the recipient of its 2007 North America Technology Leadership Award in the field of Industrial Automation. The award recognizes CyboSoft for the outstanding performance and technological advances of its patented Model-Free Adaptive (MFA) Control technology. Frost & Sullivan will present the award to CyboSoft at the "2008 Excellence in Industrial Technologies Awards Banquet" to be held in San Antonio, Texas, on April 15, 2008.

"MFA represents a major breakthrough in automatic control since it is the only no-model adaptive and robust control technology that can control complex systems with superior performance requiring no process models, nor parameter tuning," said Menaka, S., Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst for Automation & Electronics.

Frost & Sullivan's Technology Leadership Award is bestowed upon the company that has pioneered the development and introduction of an innovative technology into the market; a technology that has either impacted or has the potential to impact several market sectors. This award recognizes a company's successful technology development that is expected to bring significant contributions to the industry in terms of adoption, change, and competitive posture. It also recognizes the leadership of the company in the successful promotion of the technology and its continuing impact in technology commercialization.

"CyboSoft is very proud to receive this prestigious award, which can be considered a milestone in our journey to make MFA the next generation mainstream control technology. Frost & Sullivan is one of the most well respected market research companies in the world. Our customers, partners, and shareholders will be pleased with this latest recognition," said Dr. George S. Cheng, CyboSoft CEO and main inventor of Model-Free Adaptive (MFA) control.

Since its introduction in 1997, MFA control products have been widely deployed for process control, building control, and equipment control. MFA users have achieved significant economic benefits such as improved product quality, safer and more efficient operations, energy and cost savings, faster time to market, and competitive advantages. MFA is often an enabling technology for emerging high-tech processes, devices, and equipment.

To identify the award recipient, Frost & Sullivan's analyst team tracks technology innovation in key hi-tech markets. The recipient of this award has excelled based on one or more of the following criteria:

  • Significance of the technology in the industry,
  • Competitive advantage of technology vis-à-vis competing ones,
  • Potential of technology to become an industry standard or degree of acceptance in the market place,
  • Breadth of intellectual property ownership,
  • Recognition by industry participants as to the leadership of a company in this technology,
  • Impact of technology in terms of shifting R & D focus, and
  • Degree of technology adoption in industry product lines or strategies.

"In summary, CyboSoft is recognized with Frost & Sullivan's Award for Technology Leadership for its pioneering leadership toward advancing Model-Free Adaptive (MFA) control technology, which has the potential to be used across a wide gamut of application areas, including the ones with strategic importance to the world: energy, renewable energy, environmental protection, and medical devices."
