fire-control radar
A radar providing target inputs to a weapon fire-control system. The term applies to surface-to-air weapon systems. Normally, initial target information is obtained from surveillance radar and, thereafter, as it approaches near the radar, it is assigned to fire control radar for tracking and then for “kill.”
