HUGHES MISSILE SYSTEMS CO. WINS AMRAAM DEPOT CONTRACT

 TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Missile Systems Co. (HMSC), a subsidiary of Hughes Aircraft Co., has been awarded a $26,026,284 contract by the U.S. Air Force for depot work on the Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) program.
 HMSC will provide development and implementation of a transportable depot for the AMRAAM program under the contract, released Sept. 3 by the Air Force Aeronautical Systems Center at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The contract runs through September 1995, with options for additional work during that period.
 HMSC won the depot contract in competition against Raytheon Co., the other AMRAAM producer. Earlier this year, HMSC won a $333.2 million manufacturing contract, representing 58 percent of AMRAAM Lot VII production.
 AMRAAM was designed and developed by Hughes for the U.S. Air Force, as well as the U.S. Navy and allied nations. The HMSC facility in Tucson also delivers the TOW anti-armor missile for the U.S. Army, and the Tomahawk cruise missile and the Standard Missile for the U.S. Navy.
 Hughes Aircraft Co. is a unit of GM Hughes Electronics Corp. (GMHE). The earnings of GMHE, a wholly owned subsidiary of General Motors Corp., are used to calculate the earnings per share of General Motors Class H Common Stock (NYSE: GMH).
