The global positioning system (gps) is a satellite-based navigation system made up of at least 24 satellites gps works in any weather conditions, anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, with no subscription fees or setup charges. Microwave radio transmission is commonly used in point-to-point communication systems on the surface of the earth, in satellite communications, and in deep space radio communications other parts of the microwave radio band are used for radars , radio navigation systems, sensor systems, and radio astronomy. Places of employment are surprisingly diverse, from radio stations to airports to the army, and employers rely on radio technicians to ensure fully functioning radio communication systems for. Northrop grumman has introduced vanguard, an air-to-ground surveillance radar designed around a single small panel making the system modular, scalable, and repairable on the flight line. The introduction of doppler weather radar systems (as, for example, nexrad), which measure the radial component of wind speed as well as the rate of precipitation, provided new hazardous-weather warning capability.
Radar, electromagnetic sensor used for detecting, locating, tracking, and recognizing objects of various kinds at considerable distancesit operates by transmitting electromagnetic energy toward objects, commonly referred to as targets, and observing the echoes returned from them. Almost all modern military radar systems are based on phased arrays, where the small additional cost is offset by the improved reliability of a system with no moving parts ↑ howeth, linwood s radar, ch xxxviii in history of communications -electronics in the united states navy, 1963 radar introduction to radar systems.
