U.S. ARMY EXERCISES CONTRACT OPTION FOR LOGICON TO SUPPORT BATTLE COMMAND TRAINING PROGRAM

 LOS ANGELES, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Logicon Inc. (NYSE: LGN) announced today that the U.S. Army has exercised a fiscal year 1993 option with the company to support the Army's high-level command and control training exercises. As of November, funding for the option, the third of four one-year options, was $17.5 million.
 The company's Logicon RDA and Logicon Technical Services Inc. subsidiaries are providing technical support for the Army's computer- based Battle Command Training Program (BCTP) with headquarters in Fort Leavenworth, Kan.
 Logicon is modifying software and providing engineering and other technical support for a series of battle simulation centers throughout the United States and Europe using the Army's family of simulations.
 The simulations are generated through the Corps Battle Simulation (CBS) system, an automated command post exercise driver developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of Pasadena, Calif., with Logicon's support. CBS units are installed at the four active U.S. Army Corps headquarters and at the Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth. These round-the-clock intensive battle simulations train senior Army commanders and their staffs in the operational art of war without actually deploying troops or equipment, resulting in a significant savings of resources, time and money.
 Logicon is a leader in providing advanced technology systems and services to support national security, civil and industrial needs.
