ITT Industries Awarded $29 Million for Combat Net Radios; Army Buys 7 Thousand Half Sized Advanced SINCGARS Radios


        WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- ITT Industries Inc.
    (NYSE: IIN), Aerospace Communications Division (A/CD), has been awarded $29.3M
    to produce several thousand new Advanced Single Channel Ground and Airborne
    Radio System (SINCGARS) receiver/transmitters primarily for the U.S. Army
    National Guard.  All of the units will be produced in ITT Industries' Fort
    Wayne, Indiana facility, which is the sole supplier of the Advanced SINCGARS
    SIP radio (ASIP).
        Under terms of contracts issued in 1997 and 1998, ITT Industries is
    already producing more than 68,000 ASIP SINCGARS for the U.S. Military.  This
    new award is for more than seven thousand additional receiver/transmitters and
    some 3,500 Vehicle Adapter Assemblies (VAA) and 3,600 power amplifiers with
    associated support equipment.  Some six thousand of these items are destined
    for service in the Army National Guard's 15 Enhanced Brigades and Teaming
    Divisions.  These are the early deploying units of the Guard that require
    communications interoperability with their active duty counterparts during war
    or contingency operations.  The remaining order consists of nearly 800 units
    for the Navy and 200 units for the active Army.  These newest SINCGARS radios
    will replace voice only systems with a smaller, lighter and more capable voice
    and data system for battlefield operations.
        The new Advanced SINCGARS SIP is the result of a carefully planned
    evolution of enhancements that combine data and voice with networking
    capability into a package that is half the size and weight of previous
    generation SIP radios.  Other features include an internal battery,
    substantially reduced power consumption for longer battery life, waveform
    enhancement (known as the ESIP waveform) to improve voice and retransmission
    performance and the flexibility to grow with new requirements through software
        The export version of the ASIP is sold internationally under the name
    Advanced Tactical Communications System or ATCS.  The ATCS is already
    in-service with Ireland, and several Middle-Eastern nations have placed
