Analysis & Technology wins $7.9 million contract for mine warfare work.

NORTH STONINGTON, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 17, 1996-- Analysis & Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ/NMS: AATI) announced today that its Government Systems Segment (GSS) has won a contract worth $7.9 million over four years with the Naval Sea Systems Command to assemble, inspect, integrate, and test A/N37U-1 moored mine clearing sets. The work will be performed in GSS's Panama City, Florida office.

The contract provides for continuation of work A&T has performed since 1992. The moored mine clearing sets are towed behind MH-53E helicopters, clearing the mined area by cutting cables which anchor mines to the ocean bottom. Buoyant mines can then be detonated by Navy personnel.

Gary P. Bennett, president and chief executive officer of A&T, noted, "We are pleased to continue our work with the Naval Sea Systems Command. Mine warfare has assumed a critical role in our country's defense since the Gulf War, where moored mines inflicted significant damage to U.S. Navy ships." He added, "Supporting our Navy's mine warfare programs is a strategic business area for A&T. We have successfully supported customers in advanced mine sweeping systems development, airborne laser mine detection systems, mine hunting sonar improvements, and critical education and training programs."

The contract is funded at $3.4 million for six mine sweeping systems and related engineering services work, with options for nine additional systems, bringing the total value to $7.9 million.

Working with customers, Analysis & Technology, Inc. creates technology-based solutions in three key areas: engineering services, information technologies, and interactive multimedia training systems.
