Antenna Products Corporation Awarded Major Aviation Sector Contract for Instrument Landing System (ILS) Antennas

Antenna Products ILS GS 420

Mineral Wells, Texas – April 23, 2019

Antenna Products Corp. (APC), a leading developer and manufacturer of high quality antenna systems for military, aviation, electronic toll and communication applications, has been awarded a substantial contract for delivery of instrument landing system (ILS) antennas, towers and accessories. The contract provides for a firm purchase order covering the contractor’s requirement over the 2019 calendar year representing low seven figures of revenue for APC. These antennas and accessories will be manufactured in APC’s 100,000 square foot plant in Mineral Wells, Texas.

APC’s line of Localizer and Glide Slope antennas are the de facto standard for ILS antennas across the United States. It is APC’s estimate that over 90% of the ILS antennas currently used in commercial airports in the United States were manufactured by APC. In addition to providing real world proven performance, APC’s ILS antennas have also demonstrated that they can withstand the test of time and the unique environmental conditions associated with operating in close proximity to active runways. APC’s leading commitment to the ILS market is further demonstrated by the certification of its GS-420 Antenna to be the only glide slope antenna certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for its Next Generation ILS-420 system.

“Coming shortly after the award for providing UHF/VHF collinear antennas to the FAA, this contract confirms APC’s strong position in both the COMMS and NAVAID segments of the aviation market,” states Phil Park, Vice President of Sales, who continues “APC offers a compelling mix of products for aviation applications including collinear communication antennas, glide slope antennas, localizer antennas, DVOR antennas, DME antennas, glide slope towers and RTR towers. We believe that our products offer the best performance and reliability and it is very satisfying to receive confirmations of this magnitude.”
