AN/APS-95

The AN/APS-95 is an airborne early warning (AEW) surveillance radar operating in the UHF band for the EC/RC-121 reconnaissance aircraft. It was developed from the AN/APS-70 and replaced the AN/APS-20.

The antenna consisted of a group of 24 horn radiators mounted side by side and fed in parallel, and produced a cosecant squared antennae pattern.
