COMPTEK AWARDED AIR FORCE CONTRACT FOR MISSION CONTROL AND RANGE SAFETY TRAINING

 BUFFALO, N.Y., April 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Comptek Research, Inc. (AMEX: CTK) announced today that the United States Air Force has awarded a $3 million contract to its government systems subsidiary, Comptek Federal Systems, Inc. The contract calls for Comptek to provide a state-of-the-art, automated information processing system to support range surveillance and safety monitoring of aircraft used during training of combat air crews at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.
 Comptek personnel in Buffalo, N.Y., and Virginia Beach, Va., will commence work on the Range Airspace Management System (RAMS) immediately with an estimated completion date of the program of December 15, 1994.
 Comptek will build upon its successful experience in signal and situation display processing to provide to the Air Force a powerful state-of-the-art RAMS as a replacement for the current range information system installed at Nellis in 1978. Work to be performed by Comptek will include the supply of hardware, dedicated software, written in Ada code, and the training of Air Force personnel in the use of this system.
 According to John J. Sciuto, president and CEO of Comptek Federal Systems, Inc., "The RAMS program is a natural extension of Comptek's existing air situation and radar integration products supplied to the Air Force over the course of many years. Most notably, the RAMS system leverages off of Comptek's capabilities in Ada programming as demonstrated by the Air Situation Display System utilized by the Air Force in support of Operation Desert Storm."
 The RAMS situational display provides a high resolution, multi- colored, real-time graphics presentation of the range situation integrating in real-time radar acquired information with specialized software library data. Through the use of a module design approach, the system can be easily maintained and upgraded.
 Comptek Research, Inc., with 13 offices and subsidiary locations in the United States, is a domestic and international supplier of technically advanced electronics and data communication systems to government and industry.
