MPS-11 ­ Surveeillance Radar Set
The AN/MPS-11 Radar Set is a mobile, long-range search radar used as an early warning set. This set is also used as a permanently fixed radar identified as the AN/FPS-8. It is equipped with moving target indication (MTI) of the "Coherent video cancellation" type.
Capability: This radar set is capable of detecting aircraft in any azimuth at maximum ranges of 200 nautical miles and at maximum altitudes of /!0,000 feet. It can either be used to sector scan at any azimuth, or for continuous rotation for 360 degrees in both forward or reverse directions. The AN/MPS-11 provides power and video connections for a video mapping unit (GPA-30);power, video, and antenna connections for identification equipment (e.g. GPX-18/UPX-6); power for telephone communications equipment; and power and trigger for a height finding radar set (e.g. AN/TPS-37 or AN/TPS-40).
Frequency: 1280 to 1350 MHz
Power Output: 1 MW peak, 1.08 kW average
Pulse Width: (2) µseconds
Pulse Repetition Rate: 360 pps (depending on quartz delay line used)
Range: 200 miles; MTI 150 miles;
Vertical Coverage: 30 degrees
Horizontal Coverage: 360 degrees, 40 to 120 degrees sector scan
Antenna:
     Speed: Variable 0 to 10 rpm, CW or CCW; Position (handwheel controlled); Sector 0 to 120 degrees;
     Beam Width:
Indicator Type and Quantity: PPI (Originally up to six (6) GPA-126 PPI's); ANG CRC's had 12 UPA-35 PPI's (1971 - 1980);
Weight: 79,790 pounds
Manufacturer: General Electric
