 GE AEROSPACE SELECTS SCIENTIFIC-ATLANTA TO BUILD
 FIFTH AN/MPS-39 MULTIPLE OBJECT TRACKING RADAR
 ATLANTA, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- A $2.1 million contract for the production of the Transportable Tracking Pedestal used on the fifth AN/MPS-39 Multiple Object Tracking Radar (MOTR) has been awarded to Scientific-Atlanta (NYSE: SFA) by the Government Electronic Systems Division of GE Aerospace.
 Under the contract, Scientific-Atlanta's Electronic Systems Division will manufacture the lowboy transporter, tracking antenna pedestal subsystem and associated control electronics.
 The AN/MPS-39 is a transportable, general purpose, multiple object phased array instrumentation radar system designed to conduct test, evaluation and training in various environments.
 The first MOTR system was delivered to the White Sands Missile Test Range, N.M., in 1988. This system was temporarily deployed to St. Thomas Island in 1991 where it proved its ability to operate with maximum efficiency while deployed into remote areas. The second MOTR is located at the Eastern Range, Florida, and the third is operating at White Sands. The fourth MOTR is being delivered to the Western Range in California, and the fifth MOTR will be delivered to the United Kingdom.
 The continuing production of the AN/MPS-39 systems and the current manufacture and installation of TDRSS (Tracking and Data Relay Satellite System) ground terminals represent the continuing long-term relationship between elements of GE Aerospace and Scientific-Atlanta.
 Electronic Systems Division, a unit of Scientific-Atlanta's Instrumentation Group, is a full line supplier of antenna and radar cross section measurement equipment, satellite earth terminals and fixed and mobile tracking systems.
 Scientific-Atlanta is a world leader in cable television electronics, satellite-based communications networks, and instrumentation for industrial, telecommunications and government applications.
