Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from Essex Corporation

    COLUMBIA, Md., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Essex (OTC Bulletin Board:   ESEX)
 is pleased to announce that Sam Greenholtz, a recently retired senior engineer
 in long distance planning for Verizon, has joined the Essex Technical Advisory
 Board.  Mr. Greenholtz is a 27-year veteran of Verizon with a well-rounded
 background in various segments of the telecommunications industry.  Mr.
 Greenholtz is well known in the optical networking industry and has been
 selected to write and present position papers at such national transport
 network conferences as Optical Fiber Conference, National Fiber Optic
 Engineers Conference, Institute for International Research and COMPForum.
     Mr. Greenholtz's primary function for the last six years at Verizon was
 the technical evaluation of optical networking products including DWDM, OC-192
 and optical cross-connects.  In this role, Mr. Greenholtz completed the paper
 and laboratory evaluations for new optical networking products and had the
 responsibility for placing the first office applications into the interoffice
 network.
     The Essex technical team, led by Terry Turpin, CTO, is very excited to
 have Mr. Greenholtz's extensive expertise in service provider issues added to
 its Technical Advisory Board.  Paul Green, a member of Essex's Technical
 Advisory Board, said, "Whenever I wanted an answer as to what a user needed
 from new technology I would call on Sam.  He is truly one of the best at
 identifying and evaluating new technologies."  Terry Turpin agreed and added,
 "Sam's practical knowledge of the needs of users is extremely valuable and it
 has already been beneficial to discuss the vast applications of our technology
 with someone who is so knowledgeable of the industry."
     Mr. Greenholtz said, "I look forward to an association with Terry, the
 excellent optical team at Essex, and the other members of the Technical
 Advisory Board.  Their Hyperfine technology will solve crucial problems which
 now limit the utilization of bandwidth.  Essex has an elegantly simple
 approach to technical issues which enables them to quickly implement workable
 solutions."
