"Antiaircraft Fire Control by Radiolocators" from Tactical and Technical Trends

The following intelligence report on German use of radiolocation was originally published in Tactical and Technical Trends, No. 10, Oct. 22, 1942.

It is known that production of radiolocation equipment is being given a high priority by the Germans. There are indications that in many areas one radiolocation set is being employed to control the fire from several gun positions. In order to provide one set per gun position, a very considerable scale of production will obviously be required.

Equipment in use is believed to be highly developed from a radio point of view. Apparently, however, a corresponding degree of accuracy has not yet been attained in the method of transmitting firing data to the director. This latter problem can be expected to be a primary subject of German technical research in the immediate future.
