Radar Hunters in the Pacific
The History of Crows’ is back with more stories about the world of electromagnetic spectrum operations (EMSO). The roots of electronic warfare lie in radar countermeasures–specifically, radar countermeasures in World War Two. We tend to hear more about the aerial radar countermeasure operations in the European campaign. But these operations were used elsewhere, especially in the Pacific theater. In today’s episode, we tell how Japanese radar advancement and the Radio Countermeasure impacted war in the Pacific during WWII.
To help us share these stories, we turn to Mr. Trent Telenko. He is the Section 22 Special Interest Group list admin and social media outreach. Mr. Telenko’s career and expertise includes 33 years as a DCMA Quality auditor, Team lead & staff specialist for aircraft electronics, simulators, missile launchers and drones. His writings have covered electronic warfare and defense intelligence in the Pacific, including Section 22 Special Interest Group aka ‘SIG’, which was responsible for mapping the Australian, New Zealand and American archives for Section 22 materials.
