That hodgepodge of sensors included NAVSPASUR; various USAF detection and tracking radars, like the AN/FPS-17 at Laredo, Texas, the AN/FPS-49 at Moorestown, New Jersey, and the AN/FPS-43 and 44 on the island of Trinidad; General Electric's Radio-Optical Observatory near Schenectady, New York; the SAO camera network; and Moonwatch teams.
