Air Force Air Mobility Command (AMC) awarded ITT Gilfillan an order for three GCA-2000 systems in a full mobility configuration. Designated the AN/MPN-25, these systems provide a critical capability to the USAF in carrying out its mission. The Mobile Microwave Landing System (MMLS) system radiates a precision signal to guide aircraft to the runway much like civilian instrument landing systems found at domestic airports, but its frequency and aircraft are unique.
