University of Manchester, Jodrell Bank Observatory,

Radio astronomy developed in several European countries on the initiative and with the expertise of scientists who had been involved in radar research during World War II. This paper traces the influence of various radar techniques on the design of early radio telescopes, covering the period 1945–1955, after which time radio had become accepted as a natural discipline within astronomy.
