SCIENTIFIC-ATLANTA DIVISION TO RECEIVE ISO 9001 INTERNATIONAL QUALITY CERTIFICATION

 ATLANTA, Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientific-Atlanta's (NYSE: SFA) Electronic Systems Division (ESD), a unit of the company's Instrumentation Group, has passed the final assessment audit for certification to ISO 9001, the emerging worldwide total quality standard set by the International Organization for Standardization.
 In making the announcement, Scientific-Atlanta Chairman and CEO James V. Napier said: "ISO certification is a beginning, not an end. It is one step in a permanent commitment to achieve and maintain the highest quality products and services possible. We have chosen to employ ISO standards throughout Scientific-Atlanta as our company quality system, and we are extremely proud that our Electronic Systems Division is the first to complete official international certification."
 John E. Breyer, president of Scientific-Atlanta's Instrumentation Group, said: "Approval by an independent auditing team is a major step forward for Scientific-Atlanta to increase its international business. ESD met each of the 20 elements of the ISO 9001 standard and passed the audit with distinction."
 ISO 9001 is a stringent international quality standard initially designated as a requirement for suppliers to meet in order to do business in the European Economic Community. The standard, adopted by more than 50 countries, offers guidelines for design, production, test and inspection and quality management systems. ISO 9001 has recently taken on additional significance as an effective foundation for The Total Quality Management systems being established by many leading U.S. companies.
 Theodore R. Wieber, president of ESD, said: "The auditing team from Det Norske Veritas Industry, Inc. examined virtually every aspect of our quality management system, from management responsibility, contract review and purchasing, to inspection, packaging, training and service to ensure we met the international standard.
 "Our efforts to successfully meet ISO 9001 along with our existing military standard quality program places ESD in an excellent position to capture commercial and defense business in both U.S. and international markets."
 As a result of the successful assessment, ESD's quality system will be recognized throughout the European Economic Community and other ISO countries throughout the world. Periodic reassessments will be conducted at ESD over the next three years to ensure continued compliance with ISO 9001.
 ESD is a major producer of communications and measurement and control products and systems. The division is the world's leading supplier of remote sensing ground stations and telemetry tracking systems, microwave instrumentation and wideband test, measurement and network enhancement products.
 Scientific Atlanta is a world leader in broadband communications systems, cable television electronics, satellite-based communications networks and instrumentation for industrial, telecommunications and government applications.
