AbstractThese somewhat disconnected notes form a summary of the author's impressions during a visit to the South-West Pacific Area war theatre, to Radiophysics Research Laboratories in Sydney and several manufacturing firms. Also included are some notes on a brief trip through Ceylon and India. Operational experience was gained largely in New Guinea, and the India trip served in the main to confirm the difficulties encountered under tropical conditional in New Guinea as being also common to the South-East Asia Command and to assist in formulating a policy for design of future radar equipment in these areas.
