AN/FPS-105(V)

AN/FPS-105(V) “CAPRI” (Compact All-Purpose Range Instrument) was operating in C-Band range instrumentation radar designed for accurate range measurements of target position and velocity for performance evaluation for use on test ranges in the US.

The antenna consists of a solid surface parabolic dish with diameter of 366 cm fed by a monopulse four-horn feed using vertical polarization.

Five FPS-105(V) radars have been procured between 1962 and 1969.
