AN/SYR-1 Communications Tracking Set
The Communications Tracking Set AN/SYR-1 is a communication link used to receive downlink transmissions from the STANDARD missile for use in monitoring and control of the missile. The AN/SYR-1 supports the missile weapon system in shortening the target processing and missile response time for missile inflight orders.
Downlinked data is provided through an antenna group consisting of four electronically steered phased array antennas which can simultaneously receive two RF transmissions. Each of the antennas provide coverage of -21 to +76 degrees in elevation and -45 to +45 degrees in bearing. Total antenna coverage is controlled over 360 degrees azimuth by digital commands. A Receiver-Processor Group converts signals into digital form and also provides an interface between the central processor unit and the computer-controlled components of the AN/SYR-1.
