UNISYS SYSTEM LINKS THAI AIR DEFENSE SITES

 MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Unisys Corporation (NYSE: UIS) announced today that the Royal Thai Supreme Command has formally accepted the Joint Air Defense Digital Information Network (JADDIN) system. JADDIN, an integrated air defense information system, was designed by Unisys for the Kingdom of Thailand. Begun in May 1991, the JADDIN program has a value of $15.2 million.
 As the prime contractor and systems integrator, Unisys was responsible for all functions, including system engineering, system design, hardware procurement, software development, system integration, training, integrated logistics support and systems test.
 The system consists of the latest technology in work stations, systems and application software, voice and data transmission communications equipment, and large screen displays. All software applications were done in Ada requiring more than 230,000 lines of code. JADDIN equipment is located at the Royal Thai Air Defense System (RTADS) Air Operations Center/Sector Operations Center in Bangkok and at 11 remote sites throughout Thailand.
 JADDIN is designed to work in conjunction with RTADS, a countrywide air defense system also designed, developed and installed in the Kingdom of Thailand by Unisys. RTADS went into operation in 1990. JADDIN's mission is to provide for the exchange and display of digital information, air tracks, and command and control information at key Thai military service air defense sites. The JADDIN system supports Army, Navy and Air Force centers within the command structure of the Royal Thai Supreme Command.
 The contract period of performance was 29 months. Installation began in Thailand in mid-June 1993 and concluded with the acceptance of the system in late 1993.
 Unisys Corporation is a leading information systems company with 60,000 customers in more than 100 countries. The company is a major supplier of information services and technology to financial service, government, telecommunications, airline and other commercial markets.
