    Aug 12, 2013

    Fort Huachuca, AZ. - Airborne Radio Direction Finding (ARDF) proved its value to US combatant commanders with the success of Operation STARLIGHT in August 1965. However, the Army had been utilizing direction-finding (DF) capabilities to locate enemy transmitters since as early as World War I. The concept was simple: upon acquiring a radio signal, DF stations within an established DF net would simultaneously take bearings on the transmission. The point where three or more lines crossed would result in a "fix." When the Army Security Agency's (ASA) 3d Radio Research Unit (RRU) arrived in Vietnam in 1961, they fully expected to follow the same process. The plan was set up a DF net at semi-permanent sites and pass targeting locations to mobile DF teams using AN/PRD-1s. The mobile teams would be able to get as close as five to fifteen miles from the enemy transmitters and produce the necessary fixes.
