AN/TPS-43 Tactical Air Control Radar
SYSTEM PARAMETERS
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
The AN/TPS-43 is a tactical air control radar which utilizes a
Frequency: 2.4 2.9 GHz
Power: 4.9 kW average
parabolic sector (2.3 high x 6.2 m wide) antenna.
3 mW PEP
SYSTEM HAZARDS
HAZARD CONTROLS (to reduce or eliminate risk)
Power Density Levels (PDL)....
This system is able to produce potentially hazardous PDLs in excess of the safety
standard.  Establish a Nonionizing Radiation Protection Program (IAW guidelines
provided in this TB) .
Hazard distance from antenna...
In the nonscanning mode, exclude personnel to a distance of 125 m in the direction of the
main beam. In the scanning mode, exclude personnel to a distance of 56 m in the
direction of the main beam. The height of the antenna normally precludes ground
personnel from being exposed to RFR.
Open/cracked waveguides.....
All open waveguides and feed horn outputs produce potentially hazardous PDLs within
close proximity. Exclude personnel from these areas and check waveguide portion of this
system periodically for breaks or cracks, and replace any suspect waveguide.
Other................................
Consult the equipment Technical Manual for other operator and/or maintenance hazards.
AN/TPS-58A, B Radar Set
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
SYSTEM PARAMETERS
The AN/TPS-58 is a radar set used for general surveillance and
Frequency: 9.5 9.6 GHz
Power: 5.5 7.0 W average
artillery burst detection. This set utilizes a truncated parabolic
reflector (65 x 52 cm) antenna.
SYSTEM HAZARDS
HAZARD CONTROLS (to reduce or eliminate risk)
Power Density Levels (PDL)....
This system is able to produce potentially hazardous PDLs in excess of the safety
standard.  Establish a Nonionizing Radiation Protection Program (IAW guidelines
provided in this TB) .
Hazard distance from antenna...
Exclude personnel to a distance of 3.5 m in the direction of the main beam.
Open/cracked waveguides.....
All open waveguides and feed horn outputs produce potentially hazardous PDLs. Exclude
personnel from these areas and check waveguide portion of this system periodically for
breaks or cracks, and replace any suspect waveguide.
Other................................
Consult the equipment Technical Manual for other operator and/or maintenance hazards.
