TPS-43 Long Range 3D Radar Set - A long range transportable 3D Radar set built by Westinghouse. Highly mobile, it can be totally operational in approximately one hour and disassembled in about 30 minutes.
The TPS-43E version consists of two completely self-contained packases: an operations/radar electronics shelter and an antenna pallet. The operations shelter houses two AN/UPA-62 operator consoles and a digital target height readout. Each position includes ground-to-air and ground-to-ground communications equipment. The antenna can be unfolded and locked in position with a minimum of effort by two persons and no special equipment or cranes.
The radar signal output of the TPS-43E is both analog video signals and combined digital output designed to communicate with remote direction centers and digital networks. The combined digital output includes range, azimuth, height and IFF data.
