GRUMMAN SIGNS PRODUCTION CONTRACT FOR ARMY AUTOMATIC TEST EQUIPMENT
 BETHPAGE, N.Y., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Grumman Corporation (NYSE: GQ) announced today that it has received a full production award from the U.S. Army Missile Command for automatic test equipment, called the base shop test facility. This equipment is a major portion of the Integrated Family of Test Equipment (IFTE).
 The contract award has an estimated total value of $329 million over four years. The first year of the contract is worth $32.2 million and covers initial delivery of base shop test facilities and additional software development. The Army has options to procure additional base shop test facilities over the remaining three years.
 IFTE provides timely systems support for today's weapons. The Army has designated IFTE as the automatic test equipment for all new and improved systems entering the inventory. Employing the most advanced diagnostic technology, IFTE quickly and accurately isolates electronic faults. This multi-functional system reduces upkeep, minimizes logistics costs, and standardizes maintenance procedures across weapon systems.
 The base shop test facilities are housed in a protected shelter that can be transported by a standard army five-ton truck. This compact mainframe test system can provide support to front-line weapons and automatically isolate faults to the circuit card level.
 Grumman Electronics Systems Division will perform the work in Great River, N.Y.; Benton Park, Pennsylvania; Clarksburg, West Virginia; Salisbury, Maryland; and Houston, Texas.
 Grumman has been in the automatic test equipment business for over 30 years. The company developed and produced over 300 major automatic test equipment systems for the U.S. Navy, Air Force and Army in support of tactical weapons, and over 7,000 software programs for automatic test stations.
 Grumman Corporation is best known as a leading international aircraft and aerospace company. Other businesses range from sophisticated integrated information and electronics systems to U.S. Postal Service delivery trucks. Headquartered in Bethpage, New York, Grumman employs more than 22,000 people. Revenues were $4 billion in 1991.
