This day, radar in a single shape or one other is probably going to show up in every single place: on the street, on the waterfront, in an underground motor-road. by means of a long way the widest use of radar is made by means of the army and scientists. In all of those fields millions upon millions of radar units are at paintings. a few of them are sufficiently small to be equipped into spectacles, others weigh 1000's of lots.

Invitations have come from railway builders to reconnoitre routes for their projects. As we can see, radar has got a fairly good record of earthly services. Now it feels the Earth is too small for its capabilities. Time has come when it can step into outer space. RADAR IN SPACE In 1946, radar men in Hungary and the United States picked up radar echoes from the Moon for the first time. Since, then the Earth's natural companion has been sounded by radar more than once. Apart from accurately measuring the distance from the Earth to the Moon, radar has helped to test a number of hypotheses about the Moon's structure and surface.

Doesn't that look like a radar sort of mania, you may ask? Yet, there is a radar station at (or, rather, near) the rest home. Remember "the nearby huge buildings of whimsical architecture"? They house a radar equipment to detect and track space probes, satellites and other space objects. Now that's all. How many have you counted?

Now we have got a general outline of radar. We have discussed a whole range of radars each of which does its job as best as it can. Unfortunately, our knowledge is lop-sided a bit. We know what each radar can do, but still do not know how. Now we shal fill the gap. Which radar to choose? We might take up all the radars described in Part One. But, as one philosopher remarked, you cannot embrace the unembraccable. Or, as technical publications state, "the limited space avai1able does not permit a detailed treatment of this intriguing problem".
