Precision Approach Radar (PAR).
The controller has electronic glidepath information for the talkdown so it's classed as a 'precision' approach with min DH of 200ft.
In the short period we had a localiser only approach at Farnborough and still had the PAR, I made sure the LLZ was set up to coincide with the PAR azimuth scan thereby allowing crews to fly the LLZ with me giving them instructions to maintain the glidepath hence it was 'almost' a proper ILS approach
