HUGHES TRAINING INC. ANNOUNCES TEAM TO PROVIDE CLOSE COMBAT TACTICAL TRAINER SOLUTION

 HUGHES TRAINING INC. ANNOUNCES TEAM TO PROVIDE
 CLOSE COMBAT TACTICAL TRAINER SOLUTION
 ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Hughes Training Inc. will spearhead a team to provide a soldier-ready, low-risk, high-performance solution for the U.S. Army's Close Combat Tactical Trainer program. The teaming announcement for this potential $1 billion training program was made at the Association of the United States Army Symposium and Exhibition in Orlando.
 "The Hughes Training team has been carefully crafted from talented organizations that understand the issues, know how the Army fights and have proven their ability to deliver complex, cost-effective training systems," said Stuart I. Moore, group vice president for Hughes Aircraft Co.'s Training and Support Systems Group and chief operating officer for Hughes Training.
 Associate contractors on the Hughes Training CCTT team include Titan, provider of effective after-action review for the Army; TRW, developer of Army command and control systems; General Dynamics Land Systems, manufacturer of the M-1 family of main battle tanks and partner in the development of combat vehicles for the future; and Silicon Graphics, developer of the most powerful graphics computing machinery in the world.
 In addition to Hughes Training, seven other Hughes organizations -- including its Ground Systems Group, Space and Communications Group, Hughes Research Labs, Missile Systems Group, Industrial Electronics Group, Electro-Optical and Data Systems Group, and Hughes Technical Services Co. -- will contribute significantly to the CCTT program.
 Hughes and its associate contractors design and build more Army battlefield equipment and systems than anyone else in industry.
 The CCTT will revolutionize the way the Army trains its tank and mechanized infantry forces. It will use the latest technology to provide realistic simulated battlefields with tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, artillery and aircraft that can "fight" interactively against computer-controlled opposing forces. These opposing forces will duplicate the weapons and tactics of potential adversaries around the world.
 In addition to more effective and economical preparations for the diverse missions that a down-sized Army must handle, the use of advanced simulation techniques will dramatically cut the fuel consumption, vehicle maintenance, and environmental impacts of military training.
 Hughes Training's proposed distributed interactive simulation network approach will permit growth to brigade-size manned forces and the addition of flight simulators to the CCTT network. This will position the CCTT as the cornerstone of the Army's family of planned Combined Arms Tactics Trainers.
 "We are confident that the Hughes Training CCTT team offers the best solution," Moore added. "Our CCTT design will enable the Army to simulate operation in any area of the world and let teams and task forces train to win in a wide variety of combat conditions."
 Hughes Training Inc. is part of the Training and Support Systems Group (TSSG) of Hughes Aircraft Co., a subsidiary of GM Hughes Electronics. TSSG provides worldwide engineering support for Hughes products as well as advanced training and simulation systems.
