AN/SPN-42

The AN/SPN-42 is a computerized automatic carrier landing system (ACLS) radar that provides precise control of aircraft during their final approach and landing. The equipment can automatically acquire, control, and land a suitably equipped aircraft on aircraft carriers under severe ship motion or weather conditions. A new ACLS system coming to the fleet is the AN/SPN-46 Precision Approach and Landing System, which incorporates the latest technology, improving reliability and operability.
