RADIATION SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES CONTRACTS TOTALING $3.9 MILLION

 RADIATION SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES CONTRACTS TOTALING $3.9 MILLION
 STERLING, Va., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Radiation Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: RADS), today announced that it has recently been awarded three contracts with a total value of $3.9 million. Two of the contracts are for special use large aperture antennas, a market the company Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard E. Thomas said "has been especially strong for us recently." The third contract relates to on-going refurbishment work for U.S. Navy shipboard radar systems.
 The company's Universal Antennas Division, based in Richardson, Texas, was awarded the two contracts for the large aperture antennas. One of the contracts, with a value of $1.5 million, is to supply GTE three full-motion 12-meter antennas. Thomas said the company's Precision Control Division, also in Richardson, will supply the control systems for these antennas. The second contract, worth $1.3 million, is to supply a foreign customer a large aperture antenna/RF system for classified use. Thomas attributed much of the increased interest in the company's large aperture antennas to the company's new servo controls systems. "Last year, we created the Precision Controls Division as part of our strategy to become a full system supplier. As part of that effort," he said, "we developed state-of-the-art systems so that we would be positioned as a more serious competitor in the market for large antenna systems. These contracts help validate that strategy."
 The third contract, with a value of $1.1 million, calls for the company's Electromechanical Systems Division, based in Largo, Fla., to refurbish AN/SPS-49 radar antenna pedestals for the U.S. Navy. The work comes under a basic ordering agreement that designates Radiation Systems as the overhaul point for these pedestals. "Our relationship with the U.S. Navy under the basic ordering agreement has been providing us with a strong and steady business base," Thomas said.
 Radiation Systems, Inc., designs, manufactures and installs a broad range of antenna turnkey systems and components for radar, air traffic control, tactical military, satellite communications, terrestrial microwave and other specialized uses throughout the world.
