SRCTec delivers 400th AN/TPQ-50 radar

14th May 2019 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


SRCTec has delivered the 400th AN/TPQ-50 radar system to the US Army for air surveillance and counterfire target acquisition, SRC announced on 7 May.

The AN/TPQ-50 Lightweight Counter-Mortar Radar provides continuous 3D, 360° surveillance for early warning and location of rocket, artillery and mortar threats.

The radar’s track-while-scan capability allows for the simultaneous detection and tracking of multiple threats fired from separate locations. Once a threat is detected, the radar sends an early warning message indicating that a round is incoming. After the collection of sufficient data to enable an accurate point of origin, the weapon’s location is reported back for a counterfire response from any integrated system.
