STANFORD TELECOM SELECTED AS INTELSAT'S NEW COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM MONITOR CONTRACTOR

 SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanford Telecommunications Inc. (NASDAQ-NMS: STII) announced today that it has signed a contract with the International Satellite Communications Organization (INTELSAT), an international consortium of over 120 countries which owns and operates a global communications satellite system, to design and build INTELSAT's new Communications System Monitor (CSM). The New CSM Network will consist of a central processing facility to reside at INTELSAT Headquarters in Washington, D.C., and a global network of measurement equipment to be installed at eight remote tracking sites. The New CSM will make high-speed measurements on satellite downlink signals, including signal power, carrier frequency, bandwidth and others. The measurement data will be transmitted over INTELSAT-supplied links to headquarters, where the data will be analyzed and stored. The data will be available to operators for analysis in near real-time. The New CSM will improve the efficiency of INTELSAT operations by providing prompt and accurate measurements of communications signals, allowing for more rapid diagnosis and correction of problems.
 The contract of roughly $14 million will be completed in about 2-1/2 years. The effort will be managed by the Satellite Communications Group at Stanford Telecom's headquarters in Santa Clara. Portions of the work will be carried out by subcontractors Alcatel Espace of Toulouse, France, and Hewlett Packard.
