 ATLANTA, Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific-Atlanta, Inc. (NYSE: SFA) has been awarded a $21.5 million subcontract to support production of the U.S. Navy's AN/SQQ-89 combat system.
 The company's Signal Processing Systems Division in San Diego will perform the work as part of the Westinghouse AN/SQQ-89 team. Westinghouse, Inc. is the prime contractor to the Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) Washington, D.C. and was awarded the contract for 10 AN/SQQ-89 combat systems in September 1992.
 John E. Breyer, president of Scientific-Atlanta's Instrumentation Group said, "Scientific-Atlanta is pleased to take part and support the Navy's Surface Ship AN/SQQ-89 program."

The ships are the core platforms in support of U.S. Navy task force and battle group ASW missions.
 Under terms of the contract, Scientific-Atlanta will produce power supplies, voltage regulators, power distribution units, control drivers, power amplifiers and the system's on-board trainer. Work will be performed in San Diego and Atlanta throughout the 1990s. The contract also includes long-term options to support most U.S. Navy ASW combat ships.
 Donald V. Upton, president of Signal Processing Systems Division, said, "This contract significantly expands our role in ASW systems and adds another major platform to our customer base. We also supply equipment to NAVSEA and the Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command for use on board submarines, inland-based command and control centers, and at sonar analysis support sites around the world."
 Signal Processing Systems Division, a unit of the company's Instrumentation Group, supplies a variety of acoustic, monitoring and diagnostic systems to government and commercial customers worldwide.
