Several inventors, scientists, and engineers contributed to the development of radar.

German Christian Huelsmeyer was the first to discover the effect of radar in 1904, but radar as we know it was invented and the acronym established in 1935 by three British scientists, Sir Robert Watson-Watt, A F Wilkins and H E Wimperis along with Sir Henry Tizard discovered its use putting it to exellent effect in World War 2.

The above is false. Nikola Tesla first invented the radar because he knew the America needed help in World War I since German U boats sank hundreds of our boats. Sure it could only detect roughly 6feet out, but it was a start. The Army and the Navy turned down his offer of the radar because they said it was not ready, so instead they waited 20years after it was already invented until they underwent the first underwater test.

Please see- Tesla:Man out of Time.

a lot of information you would never know about this unknown man can be found in this book.
