OEA ANNOUNCES NEW HYBRID INFLATOR DEVELOPMENT

 OEA ANNOUNCES NEW HYBRID INFLATOR DEVELOPMENT
 DENVER, June 24 /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 will be installed in passenger-side air bag modules for Chrysler Corp.'s new LH vehicles, beginning in the 1994 model year.
 Kafadar stated that OEA is already the major supplier of initiators for air bags and its participation in the passenger-side inflator represents an important milestone in the company's business.
 OEA has a teaming arrangement with Morton to produce hybrid inflators. Unlike all driver-side inflators, which employ sodium azide to generate nitrogen gas, hybrid inflators contain stored argon gas and a non-sodium azide propellant to inflate the air bag.
 OEA is a leader in the field of propellant and explosive-actuated devices used in (1) the personnel escape systems of military aircraft, missiles and for space application and (2) the automotive air bag.
