HERNDON, Va., June 14, 2001 (PRIMEZONE) -- Logicon TASC, a Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC) company, has won a $75 million contract to provide advanced research and development services to a client in the U.S. government. The two-year contract contains three one-year options.

Logicon TASC experts will provide security, multimedia, and planning and technical support that contribute to the client mission of identifying, selecting and evaluating promising new technologies in space-based systems. The Logicon TASC team captured all four lines of business separately evaluated and awarded under the program.

"This is our third major contract win with the nation's intelligence community in six months," said James H. Frey, Logicon TASC president. "For years we've been a trusted partner to this community, and we are continuing to help them evolve with new technologies, processes and systems needed for their most intricate operations."

In March, Logicon TASC announced it had won a five-year, $57 million contract with a U.S. intelligence agency to provide systems engineering and technical assistance (SETA) support for Trailblazer, a major foreign signals intelligence modernization program. In October 2000, Logicon TASC announced a $170 million SETA contract win with a third government agency.

"All three awards speak to the tremendous value our customers are seeing in Integrated Systems Management (ISM) by TASC(tm) -- our approach for large-scale systems development. ISM by TASC means systems are delivered on time and within budget - right the first time," Frey said.

The Logicon TASC team includes Veridian, the Veridian Information Solutions Division and Veridian Systems Division, Fairfax, Va.; Advent Systems Inc., Mountain View, Calif.; Electronic Data Systems Corp., Herndon, Va.; Advanced Engineering & Sciences, a Division of ITT Industries, Ashburn, Va.; RDR Inc., Centreville, Va.; SRS Technologies, Washington Group, Arlington, Va.; and Titan Systems Corp., Delfin Systems Division, Fairfax, Va.

For more than 25 years, TASC personnel have furnished specialized engineering and technical services to the U.S. intelligence community.
