    WHAT:    TRW, the systems engineering and technical assistance
             contractor for the U.S. Air Force Space and Missile Systems
             Center, will oversee the first launch at Spaceport Systems
             International's Commercial Spaceport this week. The
             Spaceport's maiden launch also marks the first time a
             refurbished Minuteman II intercontinental ballistic missile
             will be used to place a payload into space. The Air Force
             launch is currently scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 26, at
             7:03 p.m. PST, when the three-hour launch window begins.
    
             The launch, originally scheduled for Jan. 14, was aborted
             after problems were encountered with the flight computer
             automatic sequencer and low power in the on-board avionics
             power bus batteries.
    
             Satellites built by students from the U.S. Air Force Academy,
             Colorado Springs, Colo.; Weber State University, Ogden, Utah;
             Arizona State University, Tempe, Ariz.; and Stanford
             University, Stanford, Calif., will be among the payloads
             riding aboard the modified ICBM on the JAWSAT (Joint Air
             Force Academy-Weber State University Satellite) mission.
