Unisys Receives Contract From NASA Langley Research Center

BLUE BELL, Pa.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Feb. 6, 2006— Unisys Corp. (NYSE: UIS) announced today that National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Langley Research Center (LaRC), Hampton, Va., awarded the company a cost-plus-fixed-fee contract with an estimated value of up to $49.2 million for Simulation and Flight Information Technology Services. The contract has a term of one base year and four one-year options, exercisable at the discretion of the government. The estimated value of the base year is $8.5 million. If all options are exercised, the estimated value is $49.2 million. The company has served NASA for 30 years.

Unisys work on this contract supports the NASA "simulation to flight" vision which allows research concepts to be designed, developed, and verified in a ground-based simulation facility and then validated through flight tests on aircraft with common research system elements.

Chief among Unisys tasks is the continued development of the Langley Standard Real-time Simulation in C++ which received the LaRC Software of the Year Award for 2005.

Unisys also will provide software and hardware analysis, design, development, verification, validation, operations, maintenance, modification and systems integration services for the NASA Langley Flight Simulation Facilities and Research Aircraft. Unisys is responsible for total IT systems operation and for quality assurance. Presently, Unisys has 47 employees supporting the contract in Hampton, Va.

"As we have for 30 years, Unisys supports NASA in its dedication to advancing aeronautics research and space exploration. Modeling and simulation are critical to aerospace research and we are proud to put our expertise in those areas to work for NASA," said Greg Baroni, president, Unisys Global Public Sector.

Forward Looking Statements

Any statements contained in this press release that are not historical facts are forward-looking statements as defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All forward-looking statements rely on assumptions and are subject to uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations. In particular, statements regarding the value of the contract are based on an estimate of the cost of performing the contract requirements. The value of the contract will depend on the actual cost of performance, which could be higher or lower than the estimate and on whether the government exercises the option periods, which is entirely within the government's discretion. Further, since contracts with government agencies are terminable before the end of their terms and are subject to availability of funding, the contract value is not guaranteed. Additional discussion of factors that could affect Unisys future results is contained in periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
