“Radar vs. U-boats” will cover the seesaw battle between Allied Radars and U-boat Radar Detectors. It begins with the development of radar in the lead up to WWII ending with the fielding of the Chain Home radar network operating in the HF-band. Then the first air and ship borne radars operating in the VHF-band and the first German radar detectors. Next, and arguably the greatest technical development of the war, the cavity magnetron enabling compact, lightweight radars operating in the S-band and the German response. Lastly the fielding of radars operating in the X-band and the most advanced German radar detectors.
