APPLIED RESEARCH CORPORATION AWARDED $7 MILLION NASA CONTRACT

 LANDOVER, Md., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Research Corporation (Philadelphia Stock Exchange: ARL.X) announced today that it has been awarded a $7 million contract to provide technical support services to NASA's Climate and Radiation Branch and the Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission (TRMM).
 This award represents a five-year continuation of an existing contract that ARC has been working under since 1980. The company will employ 26 people analyzing data to understand the relationship between climate and solar/atmospheric/surface radiation.
 "The award of this $7 million contract coupled with the recent award of $24.9 million subcontract with Hughes Applied Information Systems, Inc. to develop and field the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Core System (ECS) for NASA has pushed our contract backlog to $38 million," said Dr. S.P.S. Anand, president of ARC.
 He noted that under the newest award, ARC's technical staff will develop two- and three-dimensional computer models that use satellite data in simulating various climate scenarios. This requires analysis and interpretation of remote sensing data to determine atmospheric and marine boundary layer properties, development and validation of atmospheric radiative transfer models and long-term climate models, and development of stochastic rainfall models and rainfall retrieval algorithms for the TRMM program.
