This report is a review of the test plans and test results of the Ground Control Approach-2000 GCA-2000 radar system. On October 24, 1997, the Air Force Materiel Command, Electronic Systems Center, awarded a contract to ITT Gilfillan for three GCA-2000 radar systems. The firm-fixed-price contract with an estimated value of 9.6 million was awarded on a sole-source basis under the authority of Federal Acquisition Regulation 6.302-2, Unusual and Compelling Urgency. The first system was delivered 2 months late in October 1998. An operational utility evaluation followed the delivery of the first system. The evaluation revealed 85 deficiencies. The deficiencies were corrected with the exception of three reliability deficiencies, which were being worked at the time of this report.
