LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 9, 2005–Teledyne Technologies
Incorporated (NYSE:TDY – News) today announced that Teledyne Brown
Engineering, Inc., for the second year in a row, has been selected by
NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) to receive the Contractor
Excellence Award in the large business – service category.

Teledyne Brown was selected for the annual award based on the high
quality of the company’s services and support and heightened
performance, which resulted in cost savings to MSFC of more than $15
million over the last four years. Cross training and hiring personnel
with diverse backgrounds also allowed Teledyne Brown to keep costs to
almost nine percent below plan.

Under a contract with The Boeing Company, Teledyne Brown currently
supports payload integration for the International Space Station (ISS).
Since June 2002, Teledyne Brown has been supporting the Systems
Development and Operations Support (SDOS) contract with a team that has
been working on space hardware and software development, integration and
operation, maintenance of payload facilities and carrier subsystems on
the ISS and other space exploration initiatives.

The company is involved in several other MSFC programs including the
Operation and Maintenance of Propellants, Pressurants and Calibration
(PPC), the Engineering, Analytical, and Integration Support to MSFC’s
Material Science Glovebox and Biotechnology Programs.

Since becoming one of the first contractors to MSFC, Teledyne Brown has
continued to emphasize safety and quality assurance.

“Teledyne Brown has a vital role with Marshall in achieving NASA’s goal
of safe human spaceflight,” said Marshall Center Director David King.
“Their contributions are helping us fulfill the Vision for Space
Exploration, and inspiring the next generation of space explorers.”

“We are very honored to receive this award again,” said Robert
Mehrabian, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Teledyne
Technologies. “The award is a reflection of the outstanding team we have
supporting Marshall Space Flight Center programs. I would like to thank
everyone at NASA for this recognition. We look forward to continuing to
provide the Marshall Center with the exceptional quality of work that is
synonymous with Teledyne Brown.”

Teledyne Brown Engineering will receive a plaque at an awards ceremony
in the near future.
