The quad helix antenna on the starboard wing, and the single helix on the port are used for tracking missiles, and the whip antennas used for communications. The Range Recoverer also had a state of the art sonar that was directional, and could be tilted 2º above the horizon to the bottom. One could see the navigation buoy mooring chains, and channel when approaching a harbor, etc., and could also locate pingers on objects." Captain Robert W. Broom, Master USNS Range Recoverer.
