 PARAMAX TO PROVIDE INTEGRATED COMMERCIAL INTRUSION DETECTION
 SYSTEM FOR THE U.S. ARMY
 MCLEAN, Va., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Paramax Systems Corporation announced today that its Systems Services organization was awarded a contract to provide commercial state-of-the-art, intrusion detection security systems for the U.S. Army and other U.S. government agencies. The Paramax team includes DAQ Electronics, Inc. and Twin Feathers Enterprises. The contract was awarded by the U.S. Army Troop Support Command, St. Louis, which issued the first delivery order valued at more than $3 million against the base contract. Additional delivery orders are in process. Paramax, formerly Unisys Defense Systems, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS).
 Under the Integrated Commercial Intrusion Detection System (ICIDS) contract, Paramax as the prime contractor will integrate a non-developmental commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) security system consisting of sensors, control units, audio and TV assessment, entry control devices, command and control consoles, and additional equipment. The components will be employed in varying quantities and configurations depending on the unique physical security requirements and operational and environmental characteristics of individual sites around the world.
 Paramax will integrate the security software and control units of DAQ Electronics, Inc. with Unisys commercial B-38 workstations and the latest commercially available sensors to provide a system suited for various security requirements.
 "There is a pent-up demand within the military for modernizing the old existing security systems," said Jim Bridges, vice president and general manager for Systems Services. "The COTS solution takes advantage of the rapid technology advances in the integrated security market while providing major economic benefits in both personnel and equipment costs."
 A Paramax program office has been established near Ft. Belvoir, Va., and draws upon talent from its various regions to perform site survey validations, site specific designs, installations, contractor logistic support, documentation and training.
