JTPS-P5 (alias Japanese Type 71) is operating in S-Band air surveillance radar. It became operational in 1971.

JTPS-P5 uses intrapulse modulation and a pulse compression rate of 25. The compressed pulse has a pulse length of 1 microsecond therefore.

The antenna is a parabolic reflector type with the dimensions of 5.1 · 2.45 m. It provides a cosecant squared pattern.
