AN/TPN-501

The AN/TPN-501 in an operating in X-Band precision approach radar, designed specifically for the Canadian Armed Forces.

It is a modified version of the AN/FPS-36. A distinguishing feature of the antenna is the lightweight mounting of the reflectors, and that a group of dipoles was mounted instead of a horn to feed the parabolic reflector.
