During this timeframe the laboratory has accumulated a significant database of
environmental testing capability and experience derived from the exacting requirements
of our customers. The laboratory has consequently built up a knowledge resource base in
related fields such as inspection and test witnessing, prototype fabrication, functional
and developmental testing, engineering consulting services, component and equipment
assembly, etc.

AERO NAV LABORATORIES now offers its broad capabilities and experience in
environmental simulation testing and contract manufacturing to customers looking for
cost-effective solutions to resolve manufacturing and program problems, to reduce
in-house costs, to free-up internal staffing, etc. Contract manufacturing and engineering
consulting services may also be advantageous where the required services are outside
the core competence of the customer.

AERO NAV LABORATORIES operates in an efficient and relatively low overhead cost
structure and passes these savings on to our customers. This feature will result in highly
beneficial cost savings for our customers compared to doing the work in-house.
