Unlocking the Mysteries of Radar
Radio Detection And Ranging (RADAR) has become such a ubiquitous part of today’s society, both commercially and in defense, that the acronym “RADAR” has largely been replaced with the word “radar.” In spite of its pervasive use, many people don’t understand the basics of this critical technology.
