The first radar system was born in World War II, which was invented and used by the British. The radar system changed British-German air warfare situation and had a major influence on the outcome of the warfare between England and Germany. From then the development of radar has progressed from lower frequency range to higher frequency range because the higher the radar frequency is, the easier the measurement precision of radar can be achieved. In the past, it was widely believed that the high frequency radar is an inevitable trend of radar development. For a long time, the metric wave radar has been even abandoned by the western radar community.
