 PARAMAX FEATURES SOLUTIONS FOR NEW ARMY C3I STRATEGY
 AT AFCEA EXHIBIT
 MCLEAN, Va., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Important open architecture tools that could provide the U.S. Army with the readily adaptable, integrated information systems it needs to operate in a rapidly changing world are the focus of a Paramax Systems Corp. exhibit at the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association conference this week.
 Paramax, a wholly owned subsidiary of Unisys Corp. (NYSE: UIS), is an active bidder on important initiatives related to the Army's broad plan for standardizing command, control and communications hardware, software and protocols. The plan, known as the Army Tactical Command and Control Systems (ATCCS), is a comprehensive Army strategy based on open architecture standards and common components for interconnecting the five battlefield functional areas (BFA). These five BFAs are maneuver control, fire support, intelligence/electronic warfare, air defense and combat service support.
 The company is serving as prime contractor, with team members ITT and GE Aerospace, on a bid for the Army's Integrated Systems Control Network (ISYSCON), a complex system of data communication hardware and software for the centralized control and management of tactical communications supporting ATCCS.
 Paramax is also bidding as prime contractor on the intelligence control system of ATCCS, the All-Source Analysis System (ASAS) Block II program, that provides field commanders with an integrated intelligence picture.
 To serve the Army's goals and other military network applications, Paramax has developed important tools that it will apply to open system, information security and distributed processing needs. The company is a leading producer of wideband, covert data links that provide complete commonality and systems flexibility for reliable communications. To meet the stringent security needs of a battlefield network, Paramax's Network Security Server (NSS) meets Defense Intelligence Agency criteria as a System High Host and will soon meet requirements for operation as a compartmented mode host.
 In addition, the company has developed specialized COTS-based workstations for battlefield network applications. The wide-area network workstation provides effective open systems interconnection (OSI) standard network control, displaying traffic loads, routing and numerous network administration reports. Its planning workstation handles critical signal intelligence data collection. The Paramax Tactical Electronic Warfare Workstation (TEWWS) is designed to support military operations such as surveillance, interdiction and over-the-horizon targeting. The Expert Systems Planner is an object- oriented modeling tool for prototyping C3I, logistics, wargaming and other systems.
 Paramax has been providing open system solutions to the Army since the early 1980s. The company was active in the development of the Transport Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), a series of common system protocols which play an important role in Army information systems. TCP/IP allowed the Army to develop a fully operational data communications architecture in Saudi Arabia in six weeks. The network provides worldwide connectivity for all types of computers and operating systems and can be reconfigured in real time. In addition, its Tactical Army Combat Service Support Computer System (TACCS) is the Army's general-purpose field computer for logistics, personnel, medical and other Combat Service Support applications that saw heavy use during Desert Storm. The massive deployment of U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia was managed by the Transportation Coordinator Automated Command and Control Information System (TC ACCIS), a software application developed by Paramax.
 Paramax Systems Corp., headquartered in McLean, is a $2 billion information systems company with 16,000 employees. A subsidiary of Unisys Corp., Blue Bell, Pa., Paramax is an experienced leader in providing advanced integrated systems, electronic products and related professional services for civil and defense agencies in the United States, Canada and nations worldwide.
 Unisys Corp. is a leading information systems company with 60,000 customers in more than 100 countries. The company is a leading manufacturer of commercial information systems, defense systems and related services.
