AN/SPG-48

AN/SPG-48 was operating in X-Band automatic tracking fire control radar using conical scan.

The reflector was a paraboloid 60 inches in diameter (1.52 m). It was made of fiberglass with a metalized reflecting surface. The antenna was fed by a horn radiator with a splash plate.

This radar was developed in the late 1950s.
