HADRON'S SYSTEMS SCIENCES GROUP ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH CHEVRON

 FAIRFAX, Va., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Hadron, Inc.'s (NASDAQ: HDRN) Systems Sciences Group announced that it has entered into an agreement with Chevron Research and Technology Company to design and develop a computer-based simulation system for the new hire selection of oil refinery control room operators. The terms and conditions of the agreement were not disclosed.
 This selection process will augment the existing hiring procedures to help ensure that operators possess the necessary skills and abilities to be trained to perform the oil refinery control room job. The control room job has become increasingly complex with the advent of advanced automation and instrumentation systems. Hadron's computer-based selection testing system will simulate basic aspects of the control room environment and thereby test the aptitude of candidates for these positions.
 It is anticipated that this innovative new hire personnel selection system will contribute to safer control room operations, improved refinery production and reduced negative environmental effects.
 Michael E. Walker, Hadron executive vice president and manager of the Systems Sciences Group, said: "We are pleased that Chevron has chosen our group to design and develop this automated personnel selection system. We specialize in the development of technical personnel selection and training systems that successfully harness high technology to meet human resources objectives.
 "Simulations of the type that will be used for Chevron are excellent means to increase the accuracy of selection systems and therefore increase the likelihood of a safe work environment. The use of computer-based selection tests such as this one, and the air traffic control simulation test we developed for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), represents a new area for human resource programs," added Walker.
 Hadron, Inc., provides businesses and the government with expert technical services, systems integration and product development including computer-based litigation support, custom software development, and computer-based training and instructional technology.
