AN/APS-10

AN/APS-10 was operating in the X-Band air-borne search, navigation, and bombing radar. This radar is designed to serve as a general-purpose natigational aid, to provide adequate radar mapping and storm warning for most navigational purposes, and is equipped to interrogate and receive radar beacons. The rotating antenna was mounted in a radome.

The radar was a wartime (1944) developement. The production began in January 1945. It used a magnetron of type 2J42 and a hydrogen thyratron (3C45) modulator.
