ASR-B1

The ASR-B1 was operating in S-Band vacuum tube-based, stationary 2D- airport surveillance radar. The radar was in service from 1963 to 1982, at the beginning as ASR-B without secondary radar, later (as shown in the picture) with a beacon-shaped SSR monopulse antenna.

From the early 1980s it was replaced by the ASR 910.
