HADRON SUBSIDIARY, AEROSPACE SCIENCES, ANNOUNCES INTRODUCTION OF AIR
 TRAFFIC CONTROLLER SELECTION SYSTEM DEVELOPED FOR FAA
 FAIRFAX, Va., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Hadron, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: HDRN), wholly owned subsidiary, Aerospace Sciences, Inc. (ASI), announced that it has developed state-of-the-art, computer- based technology to identify and select air traffic controllers. The new screening procedures, designed for the Federal Aviation Administration, will shorten candidate selection from nine weeks to one, reduce costs, and increase the objectivity of the testing process.
 The FAA and ASI tested the system this past year and will start computerized testing this spring.
 The new screen consolidates ASI's pre-eminent knowledge of leading-edge computer system applications with its specialized skills in human performance measurement. Using new approaches to aptitude measurement, ASI structured the test components to relate specifically to an air traffic controller's performance. The ASI tests closely resemble the actual job functions of air traffic control.
 ASI President Michael E. Walker said, "We believe that this system exemplifies ASI's ability to conceptualize and design computer-based testing products that identify the individuals best suited for training in today's technologically complex, cost conscious environment."
 FAA Acting Administrator, Barry Harris, estimated that air traffic controller selection costs would have been cut $10 million if the new program had been in place last year. Harris added that future savings will be used to implement more new technological improvements in air traffic control training.
 Walker added: "ASI's screening and performance measurement technology is at the forefront in supporting the aerospace industry. We look forward to our continuing involvement with other aspects of the FAA's development of state-of-the-art technology."
