The essential elements of the system are a modified M-33 radar, two Model 5 optical trackers, two Model 5 flight-profile plotters, six skyscreens, three impact-spotting quadrants, one impact-spotting board, and a timing console. When the training includes dive bombing and conventional-weapons delivery, optical aquisition and radar acquisition systems are added.
