AN/TPQ-53 Counterfire Target Acquisition Radar is a new generation of counterfire sensor. The AN/TPQ-53 detects, classifies, tracks, determines the location of, and provides accurate, targetable data regarding enemy mortars, cannon and rockets in either 360- or 90-degree modes. It replaces the current AN/TPQ-36 and AN/TPQ-37 Firefinder
