PARAMAX SUCCESSFULLY DEMONSTRATES MINE WARFARE SOLUTIONS

 MCLEAN, Va., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Paramax, a wholly owned subsidiary of Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS), announced today that it has successfully demonstrated three of its mine warfare solutions in varying international applications. For a number of years Paramax has been a leading supplier of mine warfare technology to the U.S. Navy and major international navies.
 Integrated Route Survey Systems for Egypt
 The first two Paramax-developed Integrated Route Survey Systems (IRSS) for Egypt's Route Survey Vessel (RSV) have successfully completed ship acceptance trials at the shipbuilder's, Swiftships, Inc., in Morgan City, La. The fully integrated suite of electronics equipment provides a cost effective means of performing underwater surveys and was expressly designed and engineered to meet Egypt's needs.
 AN/SYQ-13 At Sea
 Paramax's system integration expertise also was successfully demonstrated with the USS Osprey (MHC-51) during recently completed builder's trials at Intermarine USA in Savannah, Ga. The state-of-the- art minehunter is controlled by the Paramax developed Combat Navigation/Command and Control Systems (AN/SYQ13) and the Paramax-CAE developed Automated Machinery/Ship Control System (AN/SSQ-109).
 Truly an international effort, the trials culminate four years of effort to integrate Italian engines, German propellers, a Canadian control system and an Italian design/process glass reinforced plastic (GRP) hull built at an American shipyard. The Osprey is the first ship of this class to be built for the U.S. Navy and is the largest fiberglass ship in the world. At this time, Paramax is under contract for the integration work on the first 12 ships in the class.
 NATO Exercise
 Paramax deployed the Mine Warfare Environmental Decision Aids Library (MEDAL) prototype on board the USS INCHON in support of Operation Blue Harrier off the coast of Denmark. This annual NATO exercise has been called the premiere Mine Warfare (MIW) exercise world- wide for the past 30 years. The increased level of U.S. participation this year indicates the renewed importance of MIW to the U.S. Navy.
 MEDAL illustrates the merger of Paramax strengths in Mine Warfare C4I, software development and open system development. The system, which includes decision aids, graphics interface, SYBASE environment database and communications functions, was developed under a contract awarded to Paramax by the Office of Naval Research. The Paramax prototype system was seen as "an inherent building block in the Mine Warfare C4I system," by a U.S. Navy official present at the exercise.
 Paramax Systems Corporation, headquartered in McLean, is a $2 billion information systems company with more than 15,000 employees. A subsidiary of Unisys Corporation, 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.
