PARAMAX SYSTEMS CANADA HIGHLIGHTS SYSTEMS INTEGRATION EXPERTISE AT FARNBOROUGH '92; WILL BRIEF PRESS ON CANADIAN MULTI-ROLE HELICOPTER
 MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Paramax Systems Canada, an operating unit of Paramax Systems Corporation, McLean, Va., will highlight its systems integration expertise at its first international exhibit during Farnborough '92, the biannual British airshow that attracts aviation industry exhibitors from around the world. The Paramax exhibit will be located in the Canadian Pavilion, Hall 4, Booth C8-8. A press briefing will be held September 8 at 9:15 a.m., in the SBAC press room.
 Paramax was recently selected to perform as systems integrator for Canada's new Multi-Role Helicopter program. The Paramax exhibit will feature the company's systems integration capability for airborne and naval systems, as illustrated by displays on the EH101 helicopter, recently chosen for service with the Canadian Forces.
 Together with EH Industries Ltd., who will supply the helicopter, Paramax has undertaken responsibility for performing overall systems integration and providing a mission system that satisfies Canadian operational requirements for both the New Shipborne Aircraft (NSA) and the New Search and Rescue Helicopter (NSH).
 "Paramax Systems Corporation's decision to have its Canadian operations mount an exhibit of its own is a sign of the maturity of the Canadian organization," said Paul Manson, president of Paramax Systems Canada. "We are proud to have the opportunity to display the technology that will make the NSA-EH101 the most advanced aircraft of its type in the world."
 Both the NSA and NSH aircraft will be based on the EH101 helicopter. Each will be capable of all-weather operations. In addition, the NSA-EH101 will be equipped to process and display surface surveillance and acoustic information and to be adaptable to new missions as they evolve. A total of 50 aircraft will be built under the $3.57 billion NSA/NSH program.
 Also featured at the show will be the AN/ASQ-212 airborne anti- submarine warfare system developed by Paramax for the U.S. Navy's P-3C Update III aircraft. The system uses the first in a family of 68000-based airborne processors targeted for antisubmarine applications. The related hardware and software will serve as a baseline for the NSA/NSH program. Software re-engineering and reuse techniques developed for Update III are expected to provide substantial savings to the NSA/NSH development.
 Paramax Systems Canada is best known as a major participant in the Canadian Patrol Frigate program. Under this program, Paramax designed, developed and integrated the combat system and integrated machinery control systems for 12 frigates on order to the Canadian Navy.
 Paramax Systems Canada is a leading supplier of complex, integrated electronic systems and is a center of advanced technology for naval command and control systems. The company has broad experience in integrating computers, sensors, networks, communications devices and displays into complex systems that withstand the toughest environments.
 Headquartered in Montreal, Paramax Systems Canada employs more than 1,000 people at locations in Montreal and Lauzon, Quebec; Ottawa, Ontario; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Saint John, New Brunswick; and Halifax, Nova Scotia.
 The company is an operating unit of Paramax Systems Corporation of McLean, a $2 billion leader in complex systems integration, custom electronic products and related professional services for civil and defense agencies in the United States, Canada and nations worldwide. Paramax Systems Corporation, with 16,000 employees, is a subsidiary of Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS).
