21 Apr 2021 / 7:30pm - 8:30pm

Air to Surface Vessel (ASV) radars first entered service with RAF Coastal Command early in 1940, in response to the rapidly emerging U-boat threat to Atlantic shipping. Over the next five years there was an extraordinary growth in this new technology, including the development of the magnetron, which was to play a key role in the defeat of the U-boat threat. Dr Simon Watts MBE, will describe the radar systems developed in the UK and USA for use in airborne maritime surveillance and used by RAF Coastal Command and the RN Fleet Air Arm. His talk will also describe the equivalent airborne systems developed for the German Luftwaffe, intended to assist the U boats in finding the convoys.
