The ASR-6 was an operating in the S-Band analogue air surveillance radar for air traffic control. It was a modernization of the ASR-4 using the same antenna.
This antenna had a gain of 34 dBi and provided a cosecant squared pattern. The polarization was remotely switchable, either linear vertical or circular . The transmitter used the magnetron type 5586 of Raytheon and was triggered by 2-pulse staggered pulse repetition frequency (PRF) (on or off).
This radar was replaced by the digital ASR 9 from 1986.
