Radar is a system for locating the position, motion and
nature of a far off objects by the radio waves going from the radar system
and bouncing off the objects surface. The distance of the object
from the radar source is determined by measuring the time it takes for
the radar signal to reach the target and return. Robert H. Rhines
invented radio detection and ranging system, (in other words radar). He
was born on August 30,1922, in Boston Massachusetts. He earned a B.S. in
physics from M.I.T. After he was an Army Signal Corps officer, he received
