Description 
EQ-36 Counterfire Target Acquisition radar is a mobile radar system manufactured by Lockheed Martin. The Lockheed Martin Corporation and SRC EQ-36 Counterfire Target Acquisition radar provides soldiers, leaders and units an extremely effective transportable system solution. This innovative system supports modular forces and ensures operational and tactical dominance in an irregular warfare operation. Further, the EQ-36 radar can perform without sacrificing the ability to prevail in high-intensity combat. EQ-36 provides the U.S. Army a unique capability to operate anywhere along the spectrum of conflict from peacetime military in areas of stable peace to major combat operations during general war. The EQ-36 meets the goal of Full Spectrum Operations to “apply landpower as part of unified action to defeat the enemy on land and establish the conditions that achieve the joint force commander’s end state.”

Technical Data 
 
Fonction
EQ-36 radars will detect, classify, track and determine the location of enemy indirect fire such as mortars, artillery and rockets in either 360 or 90-degree modes. The EQ-36 includes a number of improvements, including 360 degree coverage capability instead of the TPQ-36’s current 90 degrees, and dramatic reductions in false alarm rates. The EQ-36 radar detects close-in mortar attacks and long-range cannon and rocket fire. Thee EQ-36 radar provides combat divisions and fires brigades the capability to conduct predictive analysis and plan counterstrike operations. The EQ-36 radar enables commanders to rapidly and accurately locate and attack the origin of enemy indirect fires. This radar solution also supports the combined arms team and helps the Army gain the information and operational superiority it needs to finish decisively.
Mobility
An EQ-36 system is actually made up of 2 vehicles. One FMTV truck is the Mission Essential Group, containing the radar antenna and the power generator. The second FMTV truck carries the Sustainment Group, with a climate controlled operations controlled shelter and backup power generator. The operations center allows the radar to link back to Army command systems like AFATDS and FAADC2. The EQ-36 is also IFPC (Indirect Fire Protection Capability) compatible in countering rocket, artillery, and mortar attacks.
Combat use
Mounted on its 5-ton prime mover, the EQ-36 radar can be rapidly deployed and integrated into the tactical battlefield with heavy, medium and light forces. The EQ-36 Radar System is mobile, maneuverable, fully supportable and easily maintained. The Mission Essential Group contains the radar antenna and the power generator; while the Sustainment Group configuration incorporates an operations control shelter and backup power generator. Adapting to mission requirements, soldiers can operate the EQ-36 remotely using a laptop computer, or from the fully equipped climate-controlled shelter. The radar’s on-board software enables it to interface directly with the Army Battle Command Systems. The EQ-36 is also IFPC (Indirect Fire Protection Capability) compatible in countering rocket, artillery, and mortar attacks. Compared to currently deployed systems, the new, range-proven, battle-ready EQ-36 offers enhanced performance capabilities, including greater mobility, increased reliability and supportability, a lower life-cycle cost, reduced crew size, and the ability to track targets in a full-spectrum environment, a vital capability on today’s battlefield. The EQ-36 is the right system at the right time for immediate irregular warfare and future major combat operations. EQ-36 will provide full spectrum protection for our warfighters in the field.
