i spent a while trying to figure out some info. typing it all different ways. finally found some documents. so what i got is the model is ARD-2, specifically patent from us navy. used in the 50s. it was used in navy aviation. they would use it in jets and helicopters. it was used to detect 2-3 times farther than the normal radar in the aircraft. it would measure pulse generations created from whatever it was detecting. like a airplane or helicopter.

all the info was on the us navy unclassified documents listed in the link i provided in last post. scroll down about 6 pages and there are a couple straight forward paragraphs on the ARD-2. i picked this up at the local swap meet fro 20 dollars!! also came with a STROBOTAC. pretty cool
