Sentinel Radar

Sentinel radar perched up on a hill.

The AN/MPQ-64 Sentinel is a radar that alerts front-line air-defense weapons whenever it sees hostile planes, helicopters, drones or missiles. 

Three-Dimensional Coverage

Sentinel is a three-dimensional radar, meaning it reports the range, bearing and elevation of the objects it is tracking.

Command and Control 

The radar supports several command and control interfaces, providing consistent air surveillance and fire-control data to weapons that counter unmanned aerial systems, cruise missiles and fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft. It works both at fixed sites and in highly mobile maneuver operations.

Around the World

More than 300 Sentinel radars are deployed around the world by the U.S. Army and allied armed forces.
