TITAN ANNOUNCES OPENING OF DENVER MEDICAL STERILIZATION FACILITY

 DENVER, June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The Titan Corp. (NYSE: TTN) announced today that its new electron beam medical product sterilization facility has commenced operations in Denver. This unique facility is operated by the Titan Scan Systems division as a contract service operation dedicated to the sterilization of medical devices. The division currently has contracts in place for more than $4 million and is negotiating with several additional customers.
 Titan Chief Financial Officer Stephen P. Meyer stated, "We are delighted that this project has been completed on time, within budget, and that it is meeting or exceeding all of our expectations as far as volume and sterilization performance. The successful launch of the division is the result of wonderful teamwork among our suppliers, customers, the city of Denver, our own employees and our contractors. We want to thank all of them for their commitment to this project."
 Meyer also said he believes the launch of Titan Scan will help attract and retain additional business in the Denver area. "Our experience has been that providing a service like this tends to attract other medical and biotech industry to the vicinity. Our efforts should help stimulate jobs for the city."
 Titan Scan General Manager Gary Pageau stated, "The facility uses an electron beam accelerator developed at Titan and meets or exceeds all existing safety standards. This facility provides an example of Titan's capabilities to provide complete turnkey systems for specific applications.
 "The Titan strategy is to provide safe and reliable machine systems as an alternative to existing radioactive material and hazardous chemical based systems. Our reception in Denver and throughout the industry has shown the effectiveness of our approach."
 Pageau explained the operation of the system as follows. "These machines are similar to the cancer therapy units found in local hospitals. They provide high-energy electron beams which kill the bacteria on disposable plastic medical devices without damaging the products or leaving any toxic residue like the chemical process it replaces. Titan has combined the experience of experts in medical device irradiation process operations with the knowledge of leaders in advanced pulsed power machine technologies. We expect this environmentally correct system to be extremely well received by the market."
 Titan has already announced that its second location will be in San Diego, where it is expected to start operations in late 1994.
 The Titan Corp., headquartered in San Diego, is a leading supplier of customized high technology electronics products and integrated hardware/software systems to federal, state and local government agencies, as well as commercial and international clients.
