Abstract:

The principal navy sets are briefly described with block diagrams and with pictures where new ones taken in Japan are available. The Japanese Navy built a complete line of ground based early warning and fire control equipment quite independent of those used by the army. They also built airborne search and track radars for their bombers and night fighters which, while similar to the armys sets, were of their own design. The navy did not, however, build or operate any Type A Doppler principle air warning sets. The equipment described in this report will be all Type B impulse principle, except for the FM low altitude altimeter. The information and block diagrams were supplied principally by members of the electronics division of the Second Naval Technical Institute, Imperial Japanese Navy. Certain data, however, are from manufacturers and other sources.
