 HARRIS AWARDED $10 MILLION-PLUS COMPUTER CONTRACT
 TO SUPPORT FUTURE SPACE LAUNCHES
 MELBOURNE, Fla., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Harris Corporation's (NYSE: HRS) Computer Systems Division has been awarded a contract to supply more than 300 Night Hawk real-time computers to support future space launches at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The five-year contract is valued at more than $10 million, with options that could increase it to over $15 million.
 The division, headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has begun delivering the computers for use in the CORE Electronics Project, which will provide the next generation checkout, control and launch-processing systems for spacecraft at the Kennedy Space Center. The CORE systems are being developed, integrated and installed by Harris Space Systems Corporation, Rockledge, Fla.
 The computers will be used to help design, develop and implement CORE's complex processing systems that will support the Space Shuttle and Space Station Freedom programs during the next 20 to 30 years. The computers also will serve as the functional heart of CORE's launch system, helping to integrate, test, simulate and checkout Space Station elements as they flow through Kennedy Space Center to the launch pad.
 The computers' open architecture will enable hardware, software and peripherals from multiple sources to be efficiently integrated into the CORE systems.
 "This is a significant win for Harris Computer Systems Division," said Corky Siegel, vice president-general manager of the division. "Our technical excellence in real-time computing, along with our commitment to industry standards and open systems, provided the best value for the customer."
 Harris Computer Systems Division is part of Harris' Electronic Systems Sector and designs, manufactures, distributes and supports the Night Hawk family of real-time computer systems for simulation, data acquisition and secure-computing applications. The Night Hawk family of multi-processing systems supports compatible real-time and multi-level secure UNIX operating systems. Incorporating RISC technology, Night Hawks range in performance from 20 to 800 MIPS.
 Harris Corporation, with worldwide sales of more than $3 billion, is focused on four major businesses: electronic systems, semiconductors, communications and Lanier Worldwide office equipment.
