Author/Auteur: Brian Mendes

Abstract: Ahead of British and American counterparts, Canadian engineers and scientists developed the first centimetric wavelength gunlaying ( anti-aircraft-guiding) radar to be mass produced, deployed in July 1942. The period between approval to proceed and demonstration of a working prototype was a mere 18 months. This extraordinarily rapid development was achieved through the cooperation of scientists at the Radio Branch of the National Research Council and engineers at a crown corporation facility in Toronto known as Research Enterprises Limited. The project was initiated following the disclosure to American and Canadian scientists by Britain in August 1940 of the Cavity Magnetron, the first practical compact to produce high powered pulses of radio energy in the centimetric waveband. Canada’s preparedness to undertake the necessary massive expansion of personnel was in large part due to the foresight of General Andrew McNaughton, who had been appointed president of the National Research Council in 1935, staying in that position until the start of WWII. A largely intact cabin containing the equipment for producing/transmitting/receiving the centimetric radio waves -- the only one of its kind -- is on display at the Royal Canadian Artillery Museum at Canadian Forces Base Shilo, Manitoba.
