 /FOLLOWING IS A REPEAT FROM YESTERDAY FOR POINTS NEEDED/
 ROCKVILLE, Md., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- General Kinetics Incorporated (GKI) (AMEX: GKI), a designer, producer and marketer of high-end, digital secure facsimile equipment, plastic sorting and food testing equipment, and precision enclosures headquartered in Rockville, makes the following announcements:
 ANT Nachrichtentechnik Gmbh, located in Bachnang, Germany, has placed a $5.3 million order to purchase secure facsimile equipment from Cryptek, the Secure Communications Division of GKI. The facsimile equipment will be installed by ANT and used by the German Armed Forces in their special communications network. This order follows three years of extensive qualifying tests administered by the German government. GKI and ANT have worked together for four years under the terms of a cooperation agreement to successfully conclude this sale. The German government was particularly pleased with the versatility of the Cryptek products which were designed for both office and mobile field applications.
 GKI also announces that the Mobil Chemical Company, a division of Mobil Oil Corporation, has purchased an Optical Inspection and Contamination Removal System from the FTC division of GKI. The system, which Mobil purchased for $97,000, electro optically inspects plastic pellets and automatically removes contaminants. The systems's ability to reduce contamination in plastic pellet material is of critical importance in the manufacture of a wide variety of plastic products. Mobil uses the system as an essential part of its quality assurance process.
 The order from ANT brings the contract backlog for facsimile machines to $12.4 million. The total backlog for all divisions at GKI is $45.44 million. As of Aug. 31, 1992, the backlog was approximately $12.6 million.
