What Is The APN-232?

The AN/APN-232 CARA is a solid state radar altimeter system. Its Receiver-Transmitter (R/T) RT-1438 transmits a signal through the antennas to the earth’s surface, receives the reflected signal, processes the information, and provides the resulting altitude-related data from 0 to 50,000 feet to various avionics systems.
