 OEA, INC., ANNOUNCES SECOND HYBRID INFLATOR SELECTION
 DENVER, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Ahmed D. Kafadar, chairman and


chief executive officer of OEA, Inc. (NYSE: OEA), the Denver-based, high-technology manufacturer of aerospace and automotive safety products, announced that the OEA/Morton hybrid inflator has been selected by Ford Motor Company for their passenger-side air bag module for a Ford vehicle model line.
 Kafadar stated that this selection by Ford, and the prior announcement that the OEA/Morton hybrid inflator would be installed in passenger-side air bag modules for another U.S. automobile manufacturer, represents the achievement of critical milestones for the successful growth of the company's automobile safety products business. OEA is also the major supplier of initiators for air bags.
 OEA has a teaming arrangement with Morton to produce hybrid inflators. The hybrid inflator provides a design alternative to the all-pyrotechnic inflator which employs gas generant to produce nitrogen gas and is used in the majority of airbag systems in the field today. Hybrid inflators contain pressurized argon gas augmented by a heat generator upon deployment.
 OEA is a leader in the field of propellant-actuated devices used in 1) the automotive air bag and 2) personnel escape systems of military aircraft, missiles, and for space application.
