 GRUMMAN TEAM TO STUDY NEXT CENTURY'S AIRBORNE SURVEILLANCE NEEDS
 MELBOURNE, Fla., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Grumman Melbourne Systems Division of Grumman Corporation (NYSE: GQ) announced today that it has won a Multimission Airborne Surveillance Technology (MAST) study contract from the U.S. Air Force Rome Laboratory, Griffiss Air Force Base, New York. The $1.9 million study contract will be conducted over the next two years.
 The Grumman-led team will focus on operational requirements and technologies for an airborne surveillance system that will augment Joint STARS and AWACS by providing the necessary technology for future airborne surveillance sensors. The team will perform a number of studies to determine future requirements and will conduct experiments to demonstrate the maturity of required technologies.
 Grumman Melbourne Systems is the prime contractor. Team members are Westinghouse Electronics Systems, Baltimore, Md.; Honeywell Space Systems, Clearwater, Fla.; PAR Technology Corporation, Rome, N.Y., and Technology Services Corporation (TSC), New Hartford, Conn.
 "The Air Force has selected a formidable team for this study. Each team member is a leader in its field," said Grumman Melbourne Systems President Martin Dandridge.
 Grumman Melbourne Systems Division is developing Joint STARS -- Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System -- a battle management system for the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army. Joint STARS can detect, locate, track and classify enemy formations at long range, and guide aircraft and missiles against them.
 Westinghouse has extensive experience in air-to-air radar technologies as producer of the F-16 and AWACS radars. Honeywell is a leader in the development of parallel processing technologies. Both PAR and TSC are experts in areas such as algorithm development, radar design, and multi-sensor fusion.
 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, N.Y., Grumman employs more than 22,700 people. Revenues were $4 billion in 1991.
