Early S-band RADAR Designations[12]

Designation Wavelength Platform
CXAM 150-cm large surface ships
SK-1 large surface ships
SK-2 large surface ships
SC 50-cm surface ships
SF 10-cm too heavy for intended use on PT boats, but used on larger ships
SG 10-cm surface ships
SJ 10-cm submarines
SM 3-cm aircraft carriers for direction of night-fighters
SO 10-cm PT boats
SU 3-cm Destroyer escorts

From February 1943 the US used a universal system to identify radar variants, consisting of three letters and a number, respectively designating platform, type of equipment, function, and version. This system was continued after WWII with multiservice designations being prefixed by 'AN/' for Army-Navy.
