 GERMANTOWN, Md., Oct. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Microlog Corporation (NASDAQ-NMS: MLOG) announced today that it was recently awarded a contract with Union Electric's (NYSE: UEP) Callaway Nuclear Plant for Microlog's Emergency Voice Response (EVR)(TM) System. The EVR system will be installed at the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) of the Callaway Plant in Fulton, Mo.
 The EVR 2000 System will provide Callaway's Emergency Preparedness Department with an automated procedure to contact and staff emergency personnel in minutes of an emergency, test, or drill. The EVR System will automatically contact personnel based on proximity to the plant and nature of the emergency and generate management reports that will be automatically faxed to remote locations on demand or at specified intervals.
 The EVR System will contact emergency personnel at work, home or by their paging device. It will interface with Callaway's IBM mainframe computer to update personnel files through scheduled downloads. This eliminates the need to maintain two separate files and reduces possible human error in entering data.
 Microlog's speech recognition feature allows personnel who do not have touch-tone telephones at home to "speak" their employee identification number when called by the system and respond "yes" or "no" to questions regarding their fitness for duty and estimated arrival time. Dennis M. Grundy, Microlog's vice president, marketing said: "Speech recognition will replace the older method of interfacing with touch-tone based systems which was a hand-held tone generator that duplicated touch-tones or DTMF signaling. Tone generators can be cumbersome and are not always around when you need them. Speech recognition is the perfect solution for callers who are not equipped with touch-tone service or telephones."
 In addition, the EVR system has extensive security levels built in to guard against false or accidental operation. Multiple classes of security can be created with different levels assigned to individuals and groups. The system can only be activated with validated passwords via a touch-tone phone or from a remote or local terminal. "The EVR System is designed with a clear view of enabling nuclear power utilities to be fully compliant with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission mandated emergency response times," added Grundy.
