ODETICS SIGNS AGREEMENTS FOR COMPUTER TAPE LIBRARIES TOTALING APPROXIMATELY $49 MILLION

 ANAHEIM, Calif., Nov. 23 ~PRNewswire~ -- Odetics (AMEX: O.A & O.B), today reported the recent signing of new agreements for its automated computer mass storage subsystem, worth approximately $49 million. According to chairman of the board and chief executive officer, Joel Slutzky, the agreements call for volume production, in some cases, through 1997. Non-disclosure agreements preclude Odetics from releasing customer names associated with these agreements.
 "Odetics has made a significant investment in both the design of these products and the manufacturing infrastructure needed to support cost-effective volume production," said Slutzky. "Obviously we are pleased with the computer market's acceptance of our automated tape library products."
 Computer technology analyst, Lee Elizer, president of Data Storage Concepts of Boulder, Colo., stated: "Odetics is clearly the world's leading provider of 3480 automated tape libraries to the midrange computer market. The robotics employed by Odetics indicates a clear understanding of midrange computer customers' needs for 3480 library products."
 "Until this year, cost constraints have precluded market acceptance of 3480 libraries for midrange systems," computer technology analyst Robert Abraham, vice president of Freeman Associates Inc. of Santa Barbara, Calif., further explained, "The new generation of lower-cost 3480 libraries, exemplified by Odetics, match the cost and performance requirements for these applications."
 Odetics introduced its ACL5480 automated tape library in November of 1991. The ACL5480 is a modular automated tape library subsystem designed for midrange computing installations. Typical applications include backup and hierarchical file storage. Hierarchical storage management cost-effectively addresses users' demands for storage capacity by allocating files across on-line magnetic disks and less expensive tape library storage. By moving infrequently used data to tape, library automation solutions with hierarchical storage- management provide as great as a 10-to-1 cost reduction, compared to traditional disk systems.
 Odetics manufactures automated tape libraries, data recorders and other products that provide information and control through automation. The company's ATL Products Division develops and manufactures automated tape library subsystems for the computer mass- storage industry.
