INDIAN HIGH COURT CONFIRMS ATC CONTRACT FOR RAYTHEON

 LEXINGTON, Mass., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The High Court in New Delhi, India, has upheld the selection of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) as the contractor for the modernization of air traffic control systems at the Bombay and Delhi airports.
 The court acted following two months of review in response to a protest petition filed by a French competitor for the $85 million contract, with options for an additional $21 million, which was signed today by Raytheon and India's National Airports Authority.
 The selection, first announced Dec. 31, 1992, represents Raytheon's third major international air traffic control win over the past year, following earlier awards from Germany and The Netherlands.
 Mike Hoeffler, Raytheon's International Air Traffic Control director, said Raytheon is "extremely pleased" with the High Court's decision.
 "The NAA and government of India deserve the highest praise for conducting a fair and open competition," he said, adding that the award "further substantiates Raytheon's total ATC systems capabilities. By virtue of this contract, these Indian facilities will have the most modern and safe air traffic control systems available today."
 The India project will include radars, navigational aids, displays, and air traffic control automation systems. Its open architecture system will be similar to those being delivered by Raytheon and its international partner, Ceselsa of Spain, to Norway and The Netherlands. It will feature the high resolution color display that Raytheon is providing to civil aviation controllers throughout the world.
 Raytheon's Canadian subsidiary, Raytheon Canada Ltd., will manufacture two airport surveillance radars and two long-range air-route surveillance radars, described as the latest generation of all solid-state primary radars.
 Raytheon's UK subsidiary, Cossor, will produce four monopulse secondary surveillance radars (SSR), the latest generation Condor II product that Cossor has been delivering to European customers. Cossor has been producing surveillance radars for more than 40 years, and the Indian contract will bring to 135 the total number of SSRs the company has sold worldwide. The Indian systems will also feature a Mode-S capability that will further enhance air traffic safety. Airport Systems International of Kansas City, Mo., will provide the navigational aids. Raytheon's Indian partner, NELCO Ltd., a member of the Tata Group, will furnish in-country installation and software support.
 Other system elements include a voice communication system, a pilot briefing system, and airport surface detection equipment radars (ASDE). The ASDE is a new Raytheon radar that evolved from the company's marine products group. It will feature ground collision alert and video targets reinforced by synthetic overlays. Hoeffler positioned this feature as "a low-cost alternative to the expensive products available today."
 Raytheon will also provide extensive training programs for controllers, supervisors, and support personnel to enable the NAA to provide the modern air traffic control services and improved air safety made possible by the new equipment.
 This project is part of Raytheon's pursuit of an expanded relationship with Tata and other Indian companies leading to joint Asian projects in the petrochemical, electric power, appliance, and airports business sector.
 Providing financing for the program will be Eximbank of the U.S., EDC of Canada, EGDC of the U.K., and CESCE of Spain.
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a $9 billion diversified, international company with sales in four business segments: Electronics, Aviation Products, Energy and Environmental, and Major Appliances.
