What is a Radar?
A Radar (Radio Detection And Ranging) is an instrument that can detect surrounding objects using radio waves. Thus, in the maritime world, objects such as ships, buoys or birds can be detected by Radars. The use of short-wavelength microwaves allows a very accurate measurement of the direction in which the object is detected and the distance at which it is located. In addition to the maritime domain, Radars have many other applications such as meteorology and aerial surveillance. Radars are also widely used in everyday life to measure the speed of cars on a road or the speed of a tennis ball on a court for example.
