Description: The AN/FPS-120, AN/FPS-123 and AN/FPS-126 solid-state, multi-faced phased array radars are used for strategic early warning against ballistic missiles all over the world. They also have the ability to track thousands of satellites orbiting the earth. Under the BMEWS (Ballistic Missile Early Warning System) these radars are being retrofitted with technology developed for the Pave Paws radar.
The AN/FPS-132 is a long-range strategic warning radar designed to detect targets at ranges of 5,000 kilometers. The FPS-132 was introduced by the United States in 2012 as an upgrade to existing solid state radars. In 2013 the United States sold an FPS-132 radar to Qatar.
