AN/SPS-61 radar 

AN/SPS-61 radar

(United States)

Notes: This was Teledyne-Ryan’s entrant into the 1967 emergency missile-detection radar programme won by Westinghouse’s AN/SPS-58. Little is known about the radar; development was apparently halted early on due to the urgency of the effort (see the DB Encyclopedia entry for AN/SPS-58) and the haste to get an operational system into fleet service as quickly as possible.
