Having reviewed the basic radar concepts, we move on now to the practical consideration of their implementation. While there is an endless variety of radar designs, we can get a rough idea of what is involved by considering three generic radars. First is a radar of the sort used by the all-weather interceptors of the 1950s and 1960s, called simply a 'pulsed' radar. In different configurations, it still is used today. The second generic type is a far more capable one, called a 'pulse-doppler' radar. It is the kind used in the current generation of conventional fighter and attack aircraft. In various forms, it too has a variety of applications. The third generic type is a pulse-doppler radar tailored to meet the special requirements of stealth aircraft.
