INTRODUCTION OF NIGHT VISION SYSTEM FOR AUTOS; FIRST USE WILL HELP POLICE SEE IN THE DARK; REPRESENTS MAJOR DEFENSE CONVERSION

 WHAT: Unveiling of a night vision enhancement system which has
 the ability to allow motorists, for the first time, to
 see beyond the range of headlights.
 The product, called NIGHTSIGHT(TM) represents a major
 defense conversion. It was developed jointly by two of
 America's leading defense electronics firms -- GM Hughes
 electronics and Texas Instruments -- and is based on the
 infrared energy systems used by allied forces in the
 Persian Gulf War and seen on American television.
 Following its U.S debut, NIGHTSIGHT(TM) will be shown at
 the Tokyo Motor Show.
 WHERE: NIGHTSIGHT(TM) is being introduced to the world in St.
 Louis during the convention of the International
 Association of Chiefs of Police because the first use
 will be in police cars.
 Criminals will no longer be able to count on the cover
 of darkness to cloak their activities with the
 NIGHTSIGHT(TM) system. In field tests, officers using
 the system were able to gather additional evidence at
 the crime scene that otherwise would have been
 invisible. In one case, officers driving down the street
 were able to use the system to detect a concealed
 firearm being carried under clothing.
 WHEN: 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17, Frisco Room, Hyatt Regency
 Hotel, One St. Louis Union Station, St. Louis, Mo.
 Press conference participants will have the opportunity
 Sunday evening to ride in police car equipped with a
 NIGHTSIGHT(TM) system to experience first hand its
 capabilities. Additional media briefing and
 demonstrations can be arranged for Monday evening.
