AN/SPS-54 radar 


AN/SPS-54 radar

(United States)

Notes: This surface search radar was a 1968 project by Sperry Marine to find a common replacement for all the surface search radars then in service with the USN. Only one ship carried this radar, USS Gyatt (DDG-1). The lightweight antenna revolved at 20rpm. Maximum range was 23NM. Although it was well-liked by Gyatt’s crew, no further ships were equipped with it.
