GRUMMAN APPOINTS HAISE TO NEW POST

 GRUMMAN APPOINTS HAISE TO NEW POST
 BETHPAGE, N.Y., Jan. 22, 1991 -- Grumman Corporation (NYSE: GQ)


announced today that Fred W. Haise has been appointed president of its Technical Services Division, headquartered in Titusville, Fla. He replaces Wiley Williams, who has retired.
 Grumman Technical Services is involved in operations and maintenance, training support, and engineering services for aircraft and simulation training systems, space-flight systems and sophisticated computer equipment at over 30 locations worldwide.
 One major effort is on the shuttle processing contract as a subcontractor to the Lockheed Space Operations Company. Grumman is responsible for the management of an elaborate network of some 300 launch processing system computers at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Grumman was recently awarded the George M. Low Trophy, NASA's Quality and Excellence Award. The trophy is the nation's highest honor for quality and productivity in the aerospace industry.
 Haise had been senior vice president of Technical Services since April of last year. He joined Grumman in 1979 as vice president, space programs, and had successive assignments as president of Grumman Technical Services Division in 1983 and the Space Station Program Support Division in 1987.
 He began his 20-year NASA career as an aeronautical research pilot at Lewis Research Center, Ohio, in 1959. In 1963, Haise was a research pilot at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, California.
 Haise is familiar to many Americans as an Apollo astronaut. In April 1970, during the Apollo 13 mission, a mishap forced him and his fellow astronauts to convert the Grumman-built lunar module "Aquarius" into a lifeboat. They used its systems to conserve power and water while circling the moon. The crew eventually re-entered the command module, set their lifeboat adrift and returned safely to earth.
 Haise also flew five flights as the commander of the Space Shuttle Enterprise in 1977 for the Approach and Landing Test Program at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
 Grumman Corporation is best known as a leading maker of military aircraft, electronic and space systems. Other businesses include integrated information processing systems, emergency vehicles and aluminum truck bodies. The company has headquarters at Bethpage and employs 23,600 worldwide. Revenues were $4 billion in 1990.
