The CRC team has a unique mission working on the Air Force's primary ground deployable radar for the entire Department of Defense fleet.

The team also directly supports testing and development of the next generation of ground-based deployable radars, the Three-Dimensional Expeditionary Long-Range Radar (3DELRR) program.

The three-week TPS-75 baseline evaluation and optimization consisted of strenuous testing, air-traffic analysis using RADES organic software, and optimization of radar parameters.

The AN/TPS-75 is a transportable passive electronically scanned array air search 3D radar produced in the United States. It was originally designated the TPS-43E2. Although the antenna is a radically new design from the TPS-43, the radar van itself, which houses the transmitter, receiver processors, and displays are very similar to the older TPS-43E2. It is produced in the United States originally by Westinghouse Defense and Electronics Division, which was later purchased by Northrop-Grumman.
