TITAN WINS $18 MILLION NAVY WARGAMING CONTRACT.

The Titan Corporation's wholly owned subsidiary Titan System Corporation has been awarded a contract to design and execute complex, computer simulated war games for advanced tactical training of the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet. With an initial base year award and four one-year options, if exercised, the contract has a potential value of over $18 million.

"Titan has been providing this computer simulation expertise to the Navy for the past 13 years," said Gene Ray, Titan's president, chairman, and CEO. "The work plays a vital role in preparing and training our forces for the wide variety of scenarios and uncertainties that they may have to face in today's war time environment."

Under this contract, Titan will execute over 150 war games each year to support a training curricula and pre-deployment work-up training for the ships, submarines, squadrons and Marine units of the Fleet. Titan will create, build, test, execute and analyze very complex and realistic scenarios that include all aspects of modern maritime operations including expeditionary warfare, anti-terror warfare, force protection, information warfare, and the traditional elements of modern fleet and joint operations across the globe. Players in these war games are senior officers of the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, other Services and our Allies in the Pacific Theater of Operations. Titan will use the Navy's Enhanced Naval Warfare Gaming System and the Marine Corps' Marine Air-Ground Task Force Tactical Warfare Simulation to provide a realistic simulation of the war game's battle space.

The work will be accomplished in San Diego and at other US Pacific Fleet locations as required.
