AN/SPG-51D Missile Director Radar
The SPG-51D is a tracking/illumination radar for the Standard missiles, used on Virginia-class cruisers. The two channels of Fire Control available within the DDG Combat System are provided by the two missile radars. The AN/SPG-51C/D radars - part of the Mk74 Mod 13 Missile Fire Control System, are located directly AFT of the AFT funnel on the Charles Adams DDG class. These doppler Fire Control radars provide the ship with the capability of engaging multiple hostile targets.
