Telos Readies Subic for APEC Conference; Company Installs First Phase of CyberCity Project.

ASHBURN, Va--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 25, 1996--Telos(R) Corporation has completed the first phase of its comprehensive plan for the Subic CyberCity project administered by the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA). Completed in less than six months, phase one provides essential information technology communications and security functions for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit which began on November 24. The APEC conference addresses regional economic concerns and is attended by eighteen heads of state from ASEAN and/or Pacific rim countries including: Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and the United States.

Since the project began in June 1996, Telos and its technology partners have installed an IT infrastructure and various applications including: an identification card system for the Freeport Economic Zone from Sun Microsystems, Mountain View, Ca. and Apunix, San Diego, Ca., an initial 911 emergency response capability, a GPS-based (global positioning system) vehicle tracking system from Trimble Navigation Inc., Sunnyvale, Ca., information systems and e-mail for SBMA from Sun Microsystems, information technology training centers and world wide web pages for SBMA.

The new IT infrastructure is network-based and enables local area, wide area and Internet connectivity through 12km of a high performance fiber-optic backbone from the local telecommunications provider, SubicTelcom, and Cabletron Inc., Rochester, N.H., and Alcatel, S.A., Paris, France. In addition, work has begun on a financial control system for SBMA, a Geographic Information System (GIS), and a merchandise control system utilizing an RBDMS from Oracle, Inc., Redwood Shores, Ca.

Telos is integrating all Subic CyberCity IT systems from design and development to implementation of critical services for security, emergency response, voice/data communications, financial control, tourism and education. With a state-of-the-art information technology infrastructure, the Subic Bay Freeport Zone can compete in the global marketplace and attract and retain international companies such as Federal Express, Acer, Hitachi and Thomson Consumer Electronics, thus creating thousands of job opportunities.

The SBMA was established in 1992 and charged with developing the Subic Bay Freeport Zone into a self-sustaining industrial, commercial, financial and investment, and tourist center. The futuristic Subic CyberCity project is the brainchild of SBMA Chairman Richard Gordon who envisioned a completely integrated environment that will serve the technology needs of residents, business enterprises and other organizations.

Telos' participation in the Subic CyberCity project grew from the company's background in project management and large-scale infrastructure projects and specialized experience in networking, financial systems, law enforcement and electronic security. Telos Corporation is a 28 year-old information technology company specializing in life cycle engineering and network-based solutions for governments and industry worldwide. Telos has approximately 1,700 employees located in over 95 offices and is headquartered in Northern Virginia. -0- For further information: World-wide web address:
