HUGHES AND EAGLE PICHER INDUSTRIES SIGN TEAMING AND LICENSING AGREEMENT

 TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The Electron Dynamics Division of Hughes Aircraft Co., Torrance, and Eagle Picher Industries Inc., Colorado Springs, Colo., have signed two agreements that significantly strengthen the ties between the two companies. Hughes is a leading manufacturer of nickel hydrogen and nickel cadmium batteries for spacecraft, and Eagle Picher Industries- Colorado Springs (EPI-CS) is a leading manufacturer of nickel hydrogen and nickel cadmium battery cells for spacecraft as well as nickel cadmium batteries for aircraft.
 Under the terms of the new five-year long-term purchasing agreement, Hughes will buy its nickel hydrogen cells from EPI-CS in large quantities with desirable lead times. Under the terms of the new teaming and licensing agreement, Hughes will build and market nickel hydrogen batteries and EPI-CS will build and market Hughes- developed Super Nickel Cadmium(TM) cells and batteries for space applications. The agreement also allows Eagle-Picher to use the Super Nickel Cadmium(TM) battery technology to develop extremely long-life, maintenance-free aircraft batteries.
 The two agreements conclude a year-long effort between EPI-CS and Hughes to form stronger ties. The teaming agreement strengthens the position of both companies to capture more business in the space battery market and, for EPI-CS, in the aircraft battery market.
 The Electron Dynamics Division of Hughes is a unit in that company's Commercial/Industrial Sector. Hughes itself is part of GM Hughes Electronics.
