Description: The US Navy AN/SPG-62 is a fire control radar provided to the AEGIS-equipped warships allowing to guide surface-to-air missiles, primarily Standard Missile SM-2, to their intended targets. The SPG-62 has been ordered by the United States Navy as well as other international navies worldwide operating the AEGIS weapon system. The radar system operates in the I and J bands and provides continuous illumination of the target operating along the SPY-1D fixed face radar. The SPG-62 radar was deployed in 1983 along the Ticonderoga-class destroyers with four such radars on each ship. The Burke class destroyers are provided with three such radars while other ships are equipped with either two or three radar antennas. The AN/SPG-62 is considered as the weak spot of the AEGIS weapon system because limits the number of missiles than can be guided simultaneously by a single ship.
