Roosevelt with Vannevar Bush as its chairman. Lee A.
DuBridge served as the Rad Lab director. This facility was responsible for developing most of the microwave radars used by the United States during World War II, including the H2X radar used for bomb-aiming and the subsequent improvements to the initial H2X radar's technology.
It remained the most widely used long-range navigation system until it was gradually replaced by Loran-C. Loran-A was discontinued by the United States in After the end of World War II, the United States government continued to pay key people who had worked at the Radiation Laboratory for six months to enable them to write about their work.
From the forward of each book: The tremendous research and development effort that went into the development of radar and related techniques during World War II resulted not only in hundreds of radar sets for military and some for possible peacetime use but also in a great body of information and new techniques in the electronics and high-frequency fields. Because this basic material may be of great value to science and engineering, it seemed most important to publish it as soon as security permitted.
However, an altruistic drive to publish the Lab's achievements in open literature was not the only impetus. Bissell observes: The imposing volume [sic] Radiation Lab Series was not only a technological statement, but also a political statement about the role the United States was to play in the post-war world that in the post-war world the United States would be the intellectual driving force of science and technology, as well as the economic and political super power.

Vance Holdam, Jr.The use of microwaves for various radio and radar uses was highly desired before the war, but existing microwave devices like the klystron were far too low powered to be useful. Ridenour and published by McGraw-Hill between and We chaffed under this restriction and I think we often used the telephone to get around it.
