OVERVIEW: The AN/TPQ-37 Firefinder is a mobile, short-to-medium-range, 3-D, phased array artillery locating radar system operating in the E/F-band.
DETAILS: The AN/TPQ-37 Firefinder is designed to detect and track incoming artillery and rocket fire to determine the point of origin for counter-battery fire. The AN/TPQ-37 also tracks, corrects, and improves the fire of friendly weapons with registration and adjustment data.
Frequency: unknown MHz (E/F Band (NATO), S Band (IEEE))
Power output: unknown kW(average); 120 kW (peak)
PRF: unknown Hz
Range Accuracy: m (range), degrees azimuth
On/Off time: unknown
Deploy/Stow Time unknown minutes/ unknown minutes
Max Range: 50 km vs. Rockets, 30 km vs. artillery rounds
NOTES: The AN/TPQ-37 Firefinder is truck, C-130 and helo transportable. The U.S. Army combines the AN/TPQ-37 with the AN/TPQ- 36 to field an accurate and mobile Firefinder weapon-locating system. The AN/TPQ-36 would be deployed near the battle line, with the AN/TPQ-37 farther back in friendly territory.
