Also see RC-148. Finds and tracks aerial targets by means of a radio echo. It determines the azimuth, angular elevation and altitude of the target and it transmits this information to a searchlight or a gun director. The functioning of unit remains unimpaired even though t a plane may be hidden by smoke or clouds or darkness. It is designed to search for aerial targets as far as 40,000 yd. Away. It supplies a continuous flow of data which locate aircraft positively w/ reference to the detecting unit. These data, covering azimuth, angular elevation, and altitude, are instantly available in usable form. The ability of Radio Set SCR-268 to locate aircraft depends upon the functioning of three separate ant systems each w/ directional characteristics.

By a simple mechanical system the arrays may be pointed as one unit in any desired direction. Simultaneously a powerful beam of high frequency energy from of these ant traverse back and  forth over a given section of sky. Aerial targets in the field of the beam will reflect or reradiate portion of the energy back to the unit. Here, reception of the reflected signal or echo by the two remaining direction-finding ant arrays will permit further adjustment of the beam, and a close determination of the azimuth and angular elevation of the target. In addition, the time taken by a radio pulse to travel from the unit to the target and back is determined by electrical means providing in this manner a measure of the distance traveled by the pulse. This time interval is then converted by mechanical means into the slant range of the target. A mechanical computer, in turn from the slant range and angular elevation data, determines the altitude of the target.
