AN/MSG-1 was operating in S-Band tracking and fire control radar for 90 mm AA guns. The system consists of an AN/TPG-2 tracking radar and a T-18 computer.
The antenna was a parabolic reflector with a diameter of 67 inch (1,7 m). It used the conical scan with a rotating dipole. The transmitter used a fixed frequency magnetron of Type 2J32.
AN/MSG-1 was required in 1949 and was deleted in 1973. It was replaced by AN/TSQ-73.
