AN/FPS-28 Radar

The Frequency Diversity Radar program was a major radar developmental program at Air Force Rome Air Development Center [RADC]. Some of the prototypes developed as part of it included the AN/FPS-28. This equipment was designed to succeed existing Semi-Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) radar systems, which had served as the backbone of air defense of the CONUS, in order to provide enhanced electronic counter countermeasures (ECCM) capability. Raytheon designed this search radar to operate at 410 to 690 MHz. A test unit was installed at Houma Naval Air Station in Louisiana.
