U.S. ALCOHOL TESTING OF AMERICA INC. AND NAVAL RESEARCH LABORATORY
 SIGN COOPERATIVE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT
 RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Alcohol Testing of America Inc. (USAT) (AMEX: AAA) today announced the company has signed a cooperative research and development agreement (CRDA) with Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to cooperate in the research and development of prototype instruments to detect drugs of abuse.
 Commanding officer of the NRL, Capt. Paul G. Gaffney, visited the Rancho Cucamonga-based manufacturer to sign the agreement which provides for the transfer of publicly funded technology to the commercial sector.
 The prototype instruments, which will be based on NRL's flow immunosensor technology, will be designed to detect cocaine and heroin and other drugs of abuse in one to five minutes. The flow immunosensor uses antibodies in a unique way to isolate drug molecules from millions of other molecules present in test samples. USAT expects to deliver the first prototype instrument in the fall of 1992.
 USAT manufactures screening and evidential breath testing equipment used by law enforcement agencies, correctional facilities, industries and other organizations. USAT trades on the American Stock Exchange under ticker symbol AAA.
