    ENGLEWOOD, Fla., Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Escort Inc., one of the most
 recognizable names in the radar detector industry, has become a licensee of
 the Safety Warning System(TM), the revolutionary microwave technology that
 informs drivers of road hazards and other special traffic conditions.
     The West Chester, Ohio-based Escort introduced landmark high-performance
 superheterodyne radar detector technology in 1978 and has continued to be a
 technological leader, with such models as the pocket-size Passport, the
 cordless Solo and the Escort DSP with digital signal processing.  Escort has
 been granted more patents in the radar detection field than any other company.
     "We are extremely pleased that Escort has chosen to become part of the
 Safety Warning System team and will soon begin incorporating this important
 technology in its products," commented Janice Lee, president of Safety Warning
 System, L.C., the organization overseeing development of the Safety Warning
     Operating on the same microwave frequency as police radar's K-band, Safety
 Warning System(TM) transmitters alert drivers as they approach road hazards
 ranging from railroad crossings to stopped school buses, utility crews, road
 construction and traffic accidents.
     Existing radar detectors notify drivers with a visual and audible warning
 when encountering a transmitter.  However, SWS(TM) receivers respond a special
 alert and display one of over 60 permanently stored text messages telling
 exactly what sort of hazard is nearby.  Manufacturers have sold well in excess
 of 4 million SWS receivers over the past two years.
     Along with Escort, SWS licensees include BEL-Tronics, L.L.C., MPH
 Industries, Inc., SK Global America, Inc., Santeca Electronics, Inc., Star
 Dreams Corporation, Uniden America Corporation, Whistler Corporation and
 Yupiteru Industries, Co. Ltd.  For more information, contact Safety Warning
