Radar Powerpoint

  1. 1. RADAR<br />Ryan Rice<br />TED 111<br />
  2. 2. History<br />Bats use a basic form of radar<br />They send sound waves that reflect off of an object just as electric radar systems do<br />
  3. 3. History<br />The first form of radar created by humans was the telemobiloscope<br />It was mainly used to detect ships to avoid collisions<br />
  4. 4. History<br />Radar was kept fairly secret during World War II<br />Following the war, it was published that the United States used radar to measure the distance to the moon<br />It was later discovered that Hungary had done this two years earlier than the U.S.<br />
  5. 5. Uses in Society<br />A common use of radar is in forecasting the daily weather<br />For example, they use radar to reflect off of moisture in the air to predict precipitation<br />
  6. 6. Uses in Society<br />Airplanes use radar to avoid collisions and to coordinate landings<br />Operators visually watch the radar outputs and relay the information to pilots <br />
  7. 7. Uses in Society<br />Police officers use radar to detect people who drive over the speed limit<br />Their radar units are compact for easy portability and fast, accurate use<br />
  8. 8. Uses in Society<br />Ground mapping radar is often used in construction settings<br />They drag the unit across the ground to determine if there are any objects or unstable soil where they plan on building<br />
  9. 9. Uses in Society<br />The military use radar to detect enemy artillery as well as their own machinery<br />They can show where their vehicles and soldiers are in relation to enemy machines<br />
  10. 10. Future<br />The US Military is currently using groundbreaking radar<br />This radar allows soldiers to see objects and people through walls<br />
  11. 11. Future<br />New radar in Germany is due in 2012 for ground and low altitude detection<br />Supposed to have unmatched precision<br />The application can potentially be branched to border surveillance <br />
  12. 12. End<br />Technology will continue to grow, and radar will advance with it<br />Growth of radar technologies will be accompanied by a wider variety of applications<br />Radar in the future will most likely be as common as cell phone applications are today<br />
