AN/TPN-14

The AN/TPN-14 is an C/X-Band Precision Approach Radar. Basically it is a modified AN/TPN-8, installed into an 12 ft container with the radar transmitter-receiver, a final approach display for emergency operation, two air-ground-air channels (UHF-VHF), and a microwave channel linking it with the RAPCON van.
