Dear Mr. Young: Engagement of Placement Agent. Sensor System Solutions, Inc. (SSYO) a Nevada corporation (the "Company"), proposes to make a private placement (the "Offering") of (i) up to $20,000,000 of its common stock, par value $.01 per share, pursuant to the exemptions from registration provided in the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "1933 Act"), applicable state securities laws, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder (the "Exemption"). By entering into this Agreement, the Company agrees to engage Trenwith Securities, LLC ("Trenwith Securities") as its managing placement agent, in connection with the Offering. By entering into this Agreement, the Placement Agent accepts such engagement and agrees to use its best efforts to place the Securities solely with "accredited investors", as such term is defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D promulgated under the 1933 Act, subject, however, to the Placement Agent first completing a due diligence investigation regarding the Company to such Placement Agent's satisfaction. The offering price per Security shall be such price as is mutually agreeable to the Company and the Placement Agent. The Company shall prepare any and all offering documents necessary for the Offering to comply with all provisions of the 1933 Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "1934 Act"), the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") promulgated under each of the 1933 Act and the 1934 Act, and any applicable state securities laws (the "Offering Documents"). The Placement Agent hereby acknowledges and agrees that the Company may, in its sole discretion, reject any subscription for Securities presented to the Company by the Placement Agent. 1. Registration Rights. The Company shall, within thirty (30) days following the closing of the Offering, file with the SEC, a registration statement on Form S-3 covering the resale of the Securities, and will use its best efforts to have such registration statement declared effective by the SEC as soon as possible thereafter, including, without limitation, responding, in Sensor System Solutions, Inc. August 10, 2005 writing, to any comments from the SEC as soon as reasonably possible following the Company's receipt thereof. If the Company fails to file such registration statement with the SEC within thirty (30) days following the closing of the Offering, the Company will be required to pay to each purchaser of Securities, a penalty equal to one percent (1%) of the purchase price for such purchaser's Securities, and an additional one percent (1%) of the purchase price for such purchaser's Securities for each additional 30-day period during which such registration statement is not filed with the SEC. 2. Fees. (a) In consideration of the Placement Agent's performance of the services described in Section 1 hereof, the Company agrees to pay the Placement Agent an aggregate cash fee equal to two and one-half percent (2.5%) of the gross proceeds received by the Company from the sale of the Securities placed by the Placement Agent in the Offering (the "Commissions"). The Commissions shall be paid in full by the Company to the Placement Agent, upon the Company's receipt of proceeds from the sale of any Securities placed by the Placement Agent in the Offering, from time to time on an as-completed basis. In the event that this Agreement shall terminate for any reason other than a breach of this Agreement by the Placement Agent, the Company shall pay the Placement Agent an aggregate fee (the "Termination Fee") equal to two and one-half percent (2.5%) of the gross proceeds of any sale of any of the Company's securities to any investor which either of the Placement Agent shall have from time to time specifically identified in writing to the Company as possibly having an interest in investing in the Company, provided such sale is consummated within one hundred eighty (180) days following the termination of this Agreement. Any Termination Fee payable hereunder shall be payable by the Company to the Placement Agent, within five (5) days following the Company's receipt of proceeds from each such sale of the Company's securities. (b) In consideration of the Placement Agent's performance of the services described in Section 1 hereof, in addition to the Commissions payable to the Placement Agent pursuant to Section 2(a), upon the closing of the Offering, the Company will issue to the Placement Agent warrants for the purchase of an amount equal to two and one-half percent (2.5%) of the securities issued in the Offering. The Warrants shall be allocated to the Placement Agent pro rata to the Commissions payable to such Placement Agent pursuant to Section 2(a). The Warrants will be exercisable into the same class of common stock as issued as part of the Offering, have a strike price equal to the closing bid price of the Company's common stock on the date of execution of this Agreement and have a term of three (3) years. In the event Investor Warrants are issued as part of the Offering, the terms and conditions of the Warrants shall be the same as Investor Warrants. The shares issuable upon exercise of the Placement Agents warrants will be entitled to the same registration rights as those granted to the Investors in connection with the Offering. (c) Regardless of whether or not the Offering is completed or this Agreement is terminated, the Company shall reimburse the Placement Agent for all out-of-pocket expenses incurred by such Placement Agent from time to time in connection with its performance of services under this Agreement, including, without limitation, such Placement Agent's attorneys' fees and travel expenses, within ten (10) days following the Company's receipt of written demand therefore from each such Placement Agent.
