Nichols Research Announces $1 Million Contract Award.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 1998--Michael J. Mruz, CEO and President of Nichols Research Corporation, announced today the award of a contract from the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA) of the United Kingdom. The contract is for the development of a prototype sensor for the dual sensor Remote Minefield Detection System (REMIDS) Technology Demonstration Programme (TDP) based on an innovative technology developed by Nichols Research. Bids were solicited from several firms in the UK and US with Nichols being selected for award because the Company's sensor technology showed the greatest potential for detection of land mines. Worldwide proliferation of land mines continues to be a major problem facing military personnel and civilians.
