AN/TPQ-37 Firefinder weapon locating radar

The AN/TPQ-53 is a transportable radar system manufactured by Lockheed Martin. It is specifically designed to detect in-flight projectiles and determines and communicates the firing point locations with a high degree of accuracy. It provides low false alarm rate, and an improved coverage pattern.

The AN/TPQ-53 is operated by a crew of four Soldiers and transportable by C-17 aircraft, with battlefield mobility provided by two Family of Medium Tactical Vehicle trucks. The US-Army completed initial fielding of 12 Quick Reaction Capability (QRC) AN/TPQ‑53 radars in July 2011. They will replace the aging AN/TPQ-36 and AN/TPQ-37 medium-range mortar radars.
