AN/MPQ-35

AN/MPQ-35 Pulse Acquisition Radar (PAR) is operating in the L-Band air surveillance and acquisition radar used with the basic Hawk missile system. The antenna is a 22 × 4.6 ft (6.7 × 1.4 m) parabolic reflector of open lattice construction, mounted on a small two-wheeled trailer.

AN/MPQ-35 was in service between 1959 and 1971, and then replaced by AN/MPQ-50.
