  2. 2. Battle of Britain Name: Battle of Britain Date: July 10, 1940 - October 31, 1940 Countries Involved: Germany and Britain
  3. 3. Battle of Britain Name of Technology: Radar (RAdio, Detection, And, Ranging) What can it do: Radar can identify the presence, speed, and distance of oncoming aircrafts. How it was used in the battle: The British used radar stations that had been built along the southern and eastern coasts of Britain in 1939. They used these radars to detect incoming German aircraft.
  4. 4. Battle of Britain What happened: In August of 1940, Britain stood alone in the war in Europe. By August, Hitler had given up on his attempts to get Britain to sign a peace treaty favorable to the Germans. Hitler planned to invade Great Britain but he needed to deal with the British Air Force. It seemed as if the German’s would have the advantage, as the British only had 800 aircraft to hold off the 3,000 German aircrafts. This wasn’t the case, as the British used radar and sonar to help defeat Germany.
  5. 5. Battle of Britain Impact: Radar stations enabled the British to determine the direction, altitude, and speed of oncoming German aircraft while they were still 50 to 60 miles away, and concentrate their limited fighter forces against them. This made the British more efficient, and gave them the advantage that they needed to defeat the German forces.
