UKRAINE AWARDS CONTRACT TO HUGHES FOR AIRPORTS STUDY

 UKRAINE AWARDS CONTRACT TO HUGHES FOR AIRPORTS STUDY
 FULLERTON, Calif., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- A unit of Hughes


Aircraft Co. will help the Ukraine prepare an air transportation modernization plan focusing on upgrading the republic's four major airports and improving air traffic control services.
 The company's Hughes Airport Systems will complete a strategic air transportation modernization plan for the Ukraine under funding provided by the U.S. and Canadian governments.
 The airports to be studies are Kiev (Borispol), Odessa, Lviv and Symferopol.
 The effort could lead to integration contracts for the company, according to Joe Capobianco, group vice president for Hughes Ground Systems Group. It is one of the company's first major contracts to be secured in the Commonwealth of Independent States, formerly the Soviet Union. Hughes is a subsidiary of GM Hughes Electronics.
 "Hughes has developed a wide range of high technology tools and systems that can greatly aid Ukraine's airports and the air traffic control services," said Capobianco.
 "The airport industry throughout the world is being driven to improved efficiencies through advanced automation because of needs for increased throughput, higher revenues and adherence to more stringent regulations. The Ukraine wants to tap into the technology available today."
 Automation in the form of electronic data interchange throughout the multitude of computers used at airports can dramatically increase an airport's efficiency and level of service, resulting in higher revenues, according to Capobianco.
 Among the technologies that Hughes can apply to the Ukraine study are:
 -- Runway Sequencing Unit, an automated decision aid for optimizing runway capacity while complying with international flight safety standards;
 -- Automated knowledge-based resource management systems which integrate the planning, execution and monitoring functions for key assets such as aircraft gates, service equipment and airport facilities;
 -- Integrated security systems that meet new U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and International Civil Aviation Organization standards for access control, reconciliation of passenger/baggage manifests and asset protection; and,
 -- A highly efficient airport operations center that consolidates planning, monitoring, administrative and contingency response functions, as well as provides automated decision aids for effective performance of all airport time-critical tasks.
