McDONNELL DOUGLAS RECEIVES A $14.7 MILLION CONTRACT FOR RECERTIFICATIONS
 OF U.S. NAVY TOMAHAWK SEA-LAUNCHED CRUISE MISSILES
 ST. LOUIS, Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- McDonnell Douglas (NYSE: MD) has received a $14.7 million contract for recertification of U.S. Navy Tomahawk sea-launched cruise missiles for fiscal year 1992.
 McDonnell Douglas Missile Systems Co., a co-producer of the Tomahawk cruise missile, will perform 65 percent of recertification work in 1992. McDonnell Douglas will also perform a share of the refurbishment and unscheduled maintenance of Tomahawks. McDonnell Douglas annually competes with General Dynamics, the other Tomahawk missile co-producer, for shares of the depot award.
 Tomahawk missiles currently deployed in the Navy fleet are returned for recertification on a routine basis. Under this contract, McDonnell Douglas tests the missiles and performs any required maintenance work before the missiles are recertified and returned to the fleet.
 McDonnell Douglas performs these depot tasks, as well as assembles Tomahawk missiles, at its Florida Missile Production facility in Titusville, Fla.
 Tomahawk cruise missiles can be launched from surface ships and submarines. They fly at high subsonic speeds and low altitudes, striking land or ship targets with great accuracy.
 The Missile Systems Co. has delivered more than 1,000 Tomahawk missiles to the U. S. Navy. McDonnell Douglas has been producing missiles for more than four decades and has delivered more than 100,000 missiles to the DoD and international customers.
