1. (SBU) Summary: Chung Shan Institute of Science and Technology
(CSIST) confirmed reftel order from Eugenix Systems through
consignee Pegasus Hi-Tek Co. Pegasus President William Mar also
provided copies of the order for 20 rate gyros. End summary.

2. (SBU) Ref A requested that AIT/T confirm the subject business
transaction with the end user, CSIST, and visit the consignee,
Pegasus, to determine its reliability. Because AIT Econoff visited
Pegasus in April, 2009 (ref B), the Department agreed that AIT did
not need to conduct another site visit (ref C).

3. (SBU) AIT/T contacted CSIST Procurement Officer Mr. Liao Wei-yao
and received his responses that (1) CSIST did place the order of 20
rate gyros (P/N: RG02-0103-1) to Pegasus Hi-Tek Co., and (2) CSIST
will use these gyros from manufacturer Eugenix Systems as rotary
axis rate sensors for the CS/MPQ-561N shipboard tracking radar
antenna pedestal under development by the Institute.

4. (SBU) Pegasus Hi-Tek President William Mar provided AIT/T a copy
of the Pegasus-CSIST contract numbered XU98E80P. The contract was
signed on August 28, 2009, and was for the procurement of 20 rate
gyros. Please note that Pegasus' address should be 6F-9, No. 270,
Zhongxiao E. Rd., Sec. 5, Taipei. The company moved from the ref A
address in early 2008.
