NEW JERSEY SUBSIDIARY OF LOCKHEED POSITIONED FOR NON-DEFENSE GROWTH

 NEW JERSEY SUBSIDIARY OF LOCKHEED POSITIONED FOR NON-DEFENSE GROWTH
 TEANECK, N.J., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Corp. (NYSE: LK), a corporation known worldwide for missile launches and exotic military aircraft, is gaining significant and diverse non-defense business through the efforts of a New Jersey-based service subsidiary.
 The growth has been registered by Lockheed Information Management Services Company ("Lockheed IMS") in specialized services for local and state governments with clients in more than 140 agencies throughout the United States.
 "The business areas we pursue have several key characteristics -- they have sophisticated computer support needs, a financial orientation, a high volume of transactions, and substantial customer services requirements," said Lockheed IMS President John Brophy.
 Sparking the growth of Lockheed IMS is the company's approach in hiring nationally recognized subject matter experts to direct each line of business. "With this leadership, we are able to deliver systems and services which reflect a practitioner's understanding of the program area, the environment in which the program operates, and the customers its serves," Brophy added.
 In the municipal services area, the base business of parking management and ticket processing has been expanded to include programs such as emergency medical billing and collection, water billing, property tax collection and other violation, billing and collection services.
 The city of New York recently awarded the company a three-year keying service contract within its Parking Violations Bureau to pick up and process approximately 60,000 traffic summonses a week.
 Lockheed IMS has been the District of Columbia's parking and moving ticket processing vendor for the past seven years and its collections vendor for the past 11 years. Today the company was awarded a contract to continue its successful program of providing parking and moving ticket processing.
 Another growing element of the Lockheed IMS structure is in the area of transportation systems and services. Initially, the focus was on providing state regulatory, registration, and tax processing systems and services for heavy vehicles.
 "Our charter includes technologies to monitor traffic conditions, speed traffic, reduce congestion and improve air quality," Brophy stated.
 Current proposal efforts involved intelligent vehicle/highway systems (IVHS), including electronic toll and traffic management and automatic vehicle identification. A business alliance has been formed with AT&T to pursue IVHS opportunities.
 In 1989, Lockheed IMS formally entered the human services arena when it won a contract to provide a system to administer the Los Angeles County Child Support Enforcement program. From that systems development entrance, the company has moved into the privatization of selected functions of child support enforcement programs nationwide.
 The company recently contracted with the state of California to combat its child support collection growth problems with the development of a statewide automation program. This year the company also has signed contracts with the states of Massachusetts and New York to provide child support services.
 Still another challenge has been taken on by the company in the growing environmental field. "We are assisting both government and private sector customers by automating reporting systems that will track and ensure compliance with various federal, state and local environmental regulations," Brophy said.
 The most recent contract is to provide Merck and Company with a corporate common chemical database that will help the company comply with government regulations for chemical storage and disposal.
 Reporting to Lockheed IMS is Lockheed Integrated Solutions Company, which focuses on the federal market for its systems integration expertise. Current programs include multi-user computer networks for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the application of automated data collection to commercial vehicle traffic on major highways. The company also received a contract from the City of Los Angeles to provide services for the development, implementation and initial maintenance of an Emergency Management Information system.
