    I could but I think you need to exercise your googlefinger. You can't expect us to make all the effort.

    The Wikipedia article should be you first port of call: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radar

    After reading this, it would be a good idea to ask more specific questions about things you do not understand. It is easier to help you this way.

    I use the index finger of my right hand to generate a mouseclick to get from the news page to the search page.

    Fingers aside, the message here is that there are many flavors of radar in existence. The principle is to receive a bit of RF energy that has been reflected from some object at a distance, and to get a measure of the distance by using the time delay between the emission of the RF and the receipt of the reflected energy.

    Using Google to fnd articles on the subject will give you a greater depth of subject matter than we can provide here.
