McDONNELL DOUGLAS AEROSPACE ANNOUNCES AGREEMENT WITH SEKI TECHNOTRONICS CORP. OF TOKYO

 ST. LOUIS, Nov. 17 ~PRNewswire~ -- McDonnell Douglas Aerospace announced today that it has signed an agreement with Seki Technotron Corp. of Tokyo to act as its exclusive representative to market McDonnell Douglas' line of advanced solid state laser products in Japan.
 Since becoming active in solid state, diode pumped lasers in 1969, McDonnell Douglas (NYSE: MD) has developed and delivered a wide range of advanced lasers.
 "Due to recent substantial reductions in the cost of laser diodes, McDonnell Douglas is now expanding its business to include a line of next generation lasers for industrial, medical and space applications," said Michael Barnes, deputy director of laser systems for McDonnell Douglas Aerospace.
 Barnes noted these advanced technology lasers are more efficient, smaller and lighter than lamp pumped lasers, allowing higher energy output from a smaller package.
 "We're very pleased to have established a relationship with Seki Technotron. They are a highly respected, specialized import trading company with well-established business connections throughout Japanese industry and government," said John Gardner, vice president, general manager of the Laser Systems and Electronics Division of McDonnell Douglas Aerospace. "We regard Japan as a high-priority market and selected Seki as the company best suited to represent this advanced product line. We were very impressed with the caliber of all the firms who competed."
 Seki Technotron will represent the entire McDonnell Douglas laser product line, which includes:
 -- Diode pumped solid state rod lasers with powers of up to 50 watts continuous wave and 100 watts pulsed at 1.064 micrometers, and 10 watts continuous wave and 50 watts pulsed at 0.532 micrometers;
 -- Direct diode Industrial Semiconductor Lasers (ISLs) capable of powers up to 1,000 watts with optional fiber coupled output;
 -- High power red diodes and arrays emitting in the 630-670 nanometers range; and
 -- Compact laser transmitters and illuminators for a wide variety of applications.
