 GRUMMAN WINS JOHNSON SPACE CENTER PROGRAM
 TITUSVILLE, Fla., Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- A team led by the Grumman


Corporation (NYSE: GQ) was named the winner of NASA's Information Systems Contract (ISC). ISC is valued in excess of $300 million over five years. All work will be done at the Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston.
 Grumman Technical Services Division of the Data Systems and Services Group, headquartered here, leads a team that includes Boeing Computer Support Services, SAIC, and I-Net Inc. The team's peak employment will be over 600 people.
 The competitors included the incumbent contractor team led by Computer Sciences Corporation, and another team led by EDS. The contractor transition begins November 1 and Grumman will assume full responsibility on Jan. 1, 1993.
 Grumman Data Systems and Services Group President Gerald H. Sandler said, "This puts us among NASA's top service contractors and we're extremely proud of that."
 "NASA has been one of Grumman's most important customers for over three decades," said Grumman Technical Services President Fred Haise, a former astronaut. "The relationship began with the Lunar Modules. It reached a new high for us last year when NASA named this division a winner of its George M. Low award for the quality of our shuttle processing work at Kennedy Space Center. Our ISC team will give NASA that same quality of work."
 The ISC contractor will integrate services currently being performed under seven contracts for non mission-related data processing, networking, and telecommunications at JSC. This includes installation, maintenance and operation of mainframe computers, institutional and local area networks, minicomputers, workstations, PC's and terminals, as well as software development and maintenance. The team will also support development and maintenance of many current administrative, payroll, management, human resources and business operations systems now in use at JSC.
 Boeing Computer Support Services of Huntsville, Ala., gives the team expertise in service and systems integration of host processors, communications networks, telecommunications, and software applications. SAIC of Houston, Texas, will provide application development, information resource management and strategic planning support. I-NET Inc. of Bethesda, Md., will be responsible for network, telecommunications and customer support services.
 Grumman Technical Services provides operations, maintenance and engineering of high technology systems and equipment for NASA and other federal and international organizations. As subcontractor to Lockheed on the Shuttle Processing Contract, it operates and maintains the computer hardware and software that are used for the preparation and launch of space shuttles.
 Grumman Corporation is best known as a leading international aircraft and aerospace company. Other businesses range from sophisticated electronics systems to U.S. Postal Service delivery trucks. Headquartered in Bethpage, N.Y., Grumman employs about 21,000 people. Revenues were $4 billion in 1991.
