The AN/FPS-6 was a high-power E-Band nodding height-finding radar. For many years the AN/FPS-6 radar has been the principal height-finder used by US armed forces and many allied nations. At least 450 of these systems have been delivered, including the mobile version, the AN/MPS-14.
The AN/FPS-6 was noted for extreme accuracy at long range, and three available versions gave it wide versatility under a variety of environmental conditions.
