Radar

It seems to be broadly recognized that, although Heinrich Hertz had observed RF standing waves resulting from metallic reflections, it was Nikola Tesla, in 1900, who was the first to propose the concept of radar.(34)

Accordin to NRL radar pioneer R.M. Page, it was Tesla who first”… suggested the use of electromagnetic waves to determine the relative position, speed, and course of a moving object.”(35)

The earliest patent issuing for radar appears to have been the British patent granted to German engineer Christian Hulsmeyer.(36) Certainly, Tesla’s interview with H.W. Secor appears as an added note in the radar lore.(37)

The acronym radar was an official code word adopted by the US Navy in November of 1940, the same month that the MIT Radiation Laboratory was organized for the exploitation of the microwave region for radar.
