The AN/TPQ-53 is a counterfire target acquisition radar designed and manufactured by the U.S. Company Lockheed Martin. The U.S. Army changed the designation of the Enhanced AN / TPQ-36 (EQ-36) radar to the AN/TPQ-53 (Q-53) radar in September 2011.

The solid-state phased array AN/TP-Q-53 radar system, or, Q-53 , detects, classifies, tracks and determines the location of enemy indirect fire in either 360 or 90 degree modes. The Q-53 is replacing the aging AN/TPQ-36 and AN/TPQ-37 medium-range radars in the U.S. Army’s inventory. Compared to the Q-36 and Q-37, the Q-53 provides enhanced performance, including greater mobility, increased reliability and supportability, lower life-cycle cost, and reduced crew size.

With 104 units under contract, and 100 units manufactured for the U.S. Army, Lockheed Martin is working with the U.S. Army for a full rate production award in 2017.
