RACAL-REDAC’s $5m HUGHES PACT

By CBR Staff Writer

Racal Redac has finally won permission from General Motors’ Hughes Aircraft to announce a $5m order for 116 of its Visula workstations based on the Apollo Domain system. Hughes will be using the workstations to design its new electronic products for the next five years and because much of this will be used by the US Department of Defense the company took six months in clearing publicity. The first 20 machines have already been installed and the remainder will go in over the next 15 months. Redac says it will be announcing another large contract with a major US air company next week which will come just in time for its financial year end, March 31, and give it a record year. The Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire Racal unit expects to report 33% growth in sales to UKP45m or so.
