Question about AN/TPS-1D in Naval use - September 12, 2018
From: Don Hilgert < dholdguy @ yahoo . com >
I was a Army radar crew member with Hawk missiles. I have been doing some research on the AN/TPS-1D radar history. In my research I found that the Navy utilize this radar on some ships. I read several years ago the the navy decommission this system 1958 do to concerns of the safety to the crew members because of radiation exposure. When the Hawk ADS units were organized in 1960 this system was used by the HQ operators to assign tracts to the line batteries. If you have any information or you can advise me on where to get information on the Navy ships that utilize the tipsy and the reasoning behind Navy decommission I would truly be very grateful. Thank you for your help in advance. Don Hilgert

Your website has been helpful, thanks.
I now understand these mounts were mobile systems. I see your site has a picture of a neglected one in Ft Bliss. If you know of any mobile tracking radar systems that needs rescuing or for sale, I would be interested..
