HISTORICAL ELECTRONICS MUSEUM PLANS DEDICATION OF PEARL HARBOR RADAR

HISTORICAL ELECTRONICS MUSEUM PLANS DEDICATION OF PEARL HARBOR RADAR
 In a ceremony commemorating the historic role of radar in detecting the attack on Pearl Harbor, officials of the Westinghouse Electronic Systems Group in Linthicum, Md., will gather tomorrow, Dec. 3, at 11:30 a.m., with individuals who designed, developed and operated the first radar used in combat by the United States.
 A restored version of that 50-year-old radar technology that changed the world will also be unveiled during the ceremony which will take place at the Historical Electronics Museum, Inc., located at 920 Elkridge Landing Road.
 Among those participating in the radar commemoration will be Joseph Lockard, who as a U.S. Army Signal Corps private on the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, operated the Westinghouse radar, built in Baltimore, that detected the approaching Japanese aircraft at Pearl Harbor.
 Among the other speakers will be Richard A. Linder, president of Westinghouse's Electronic Systems Group, and Robert Dwight, curator of the Historical Electronics Museum.
 Interview opportunities will be available before and after the radar dedication ceremony which is expected to conclude by about noon.
 CONTACT: Jack Martin Jr. of Westinghouse, 410-765-4441.
