        VAN NUYS, Calif., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ministry of Defense for the

    Precision Approach Radar.  The system will be supplied to the Headquarters
    Logistics Command to support the Royal Air Force's requirement for a highly

    procurement.  This is the latest contract for the high performance all-weather
    landing radar system developed by ITT Gilfillan.  The all solid-state PAR-2000
