08/23/2017: Marines assigned to Marine Air Control Squadron 2 test the capabilities of the new AN/TPS-80 aviation radar system during a field exercise at Marine Corps Outlying Field Atlantic, August 1, 2017.
There are only two AN/TPS-80 [G/ATOR] radar systems actively used within the United States Marine Corps today.
The new system produces 3D radar imagery and has improved tracking and detection capabilities.
The G/ATOR can be deployed and operational within 30 minutes of assembly, besting the previous system by over an hour. MACS-2 is assigned to Marine Air Control Group 28, Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.
