The Westinghouse (now Northrop-Grumman) AN/TPS-70 3-Dimensional phased array radar is a single-channel, search and secondary mobile system that provides the operator with the capability to track 500 targets, displaying target range, height, azimuth, Identification Friend/Foe (IFF) information from an altitude of 0 to 100,000 feet to a maximum range of 240 nautical miles. The TPS-70 radar can provide both raw (plots) and processed (tracks) data. Radar data processing involves the acquisition of raw and processed data from the radars, clutter filtering, track filtering, and sensor data fusion for a multi-radar version.
The TPS-70 tactical radar provides reliability, sensitivity, and accuracy, even in the face of jamming and high-clutter conditions.
