Quicklook II

The Quicklook and Quicklook II noncommunications idenficiation and collection systems intercepted, located, identified, and reported noncommunications emitters. The initial Quicklook system, which included elements mounted on the RV-1C aircraft, was replaced by the Quicklook II system, which was remotely controlled and utilized the RV-1D aircraft. The Quicklook II system was in turn replaced by the Advanced Quicklook system, which became a component of the Guardrail / Common Sensor system.

The AN/ALQ-133 Quicklook II system was an airborne, automated radar collection system. It was used to collect and classify noncommunications signals data. The intercept receiver group and Quantizer-control group portions of the system were mounted on an RV-lD aircraft. The remainder of the system, the simulator set AN/USM-393, was mounted in a V-495/USM-393, which was groundbased. Communications were provided by secure UHF data links from the V-495/USM-393 to the RV-1D aircraft crew. The Army communications system provided secure record traffic communications to the ground processor.
