MOS Description and Mission

Field Artillery Radar Operators operate counter fire radar systems tracking friendly rounds as they go out, and using their radars to track incoming indirect fires (IDF) for counter-battery fire. They work in teams of 8-10, keeping a small target profile located far away from the artillery batteries and gun lines. Their radars track the rounds being fired, reverse calculating the location where they are fired from. Once they receive the coordinates for enemy gun locations, they communicate them back to the Target Processing Center (TPC) who will make determinations on how to prosecute the targets. They operate the GATOR, FireFinder, and LCMR system. They do very little hiking, driving almost everywhere to transport their radars. As a combat arms MOS, they are also responsible for serving as provisional Infantry.
