    4/15/1999

        WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- ITT Industries, Inc.
    (NYSE: IIN) announced today that its Gilfillan division has been awarded
    contracts to provide radar equipment worth approximately $45 million for the
    Republic of Turkey.  The awards include both MPN-14K radar approach control
    (RAPCONs) and MPN-25 ground control approach (GCA) radars for the Turkish Air
    Force.
        The MPN-14K system provides air traffic control and precision approach
    services in support of landing aircraft.  This solid state RAPCON provides a
    significant improvement in performance for all weather landing operations.
    The modular system includes trailer-mounted mobile and fixed-base
    configurations, depending on individual customer requirements.  The new MPN-
    14Ks on this contract are in addition to seven systems previously delivered to
    Turkey.
        The MPN-25s under contract represent the first international sale of this
    solid-state tactical landing system.  The AN/MPN-25 is also in production for
    the US Air Force.  The MPN-25, a member of GCA-2000 family of radar systems,
    is a highly mobile configuration used for quick deployment in times of crisis.
    The highly mobile AN/MPN-25 deploys with early aircraft to provide initial ATC
    operations in adverse weather. In less than two hours from arrival the
    AN/MPN-25 can be operational, providing guidance and area control to follow-on
    aircraft. Operational flexibility is further aided by the MPN-25s unique
    capability to change runways due to wind shifts in less than one minute.
