Radio transmitting system Bernard

The German radio navigation system FuSAn 724/725 with the code name "Bernhard" was developed by Telefunken. It could position a plane using radio waves.

The system was started in the autumn 1941 and consisted of a Antenna that was 22 meters in diameter. This rotated about its own axis twice a minute. Each station broadcast a unique radio wave and with only two of these, the individual aircraft could get a very precise position.

In all of Europe, with a distance of 300 km. the germans placed a broadcast station.

The system continued to be develop and expanded throughout the war.
