Radar - equipment
Here is radar in action. The date is February 13, 1944
The scene: Nettuno, Italy. Although the camera could not register the Nazi aircraft through the dense overcast, the precise location of the attackers was clearly visible to Army experts shown manning the radar.
Even as this picture was made, A.A. [anti-aircraft] guns, just beyond the field of the camera, began picking off Luftwaffe fighters like "sitting ducks."
Western Electric Company manufactured thhousands of these radars early in the war.
