E-1 Tracer
1970

E-1 Tracer

The E-1 Tracer was the first purpose built airborne early warning aircraft used by the United States Navy. The Tracer was fitted with the Hazeltine AN/APS-82 in its radome. The radar featured an Airborne Moving Target Indicator (AMTI), which analyzes the Doppler shift in reflected radar energy to distinguish a flying aircraft against the clutter produced by wave action at the ocean's surface.
