Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. AZUSA refers to a ground-based radar tracking system installed at Cape Canaveral, Florida and the NASA Kennedy Space Center. AZUSA dated back to the early 1950s and was named after the southern California town where the system was devised. The AZUSA radar interferometer tracking system employs two receiving points on the ground and comparing the phases of the signals each of them separately receives from an airborne source. Radio and radar interferometry has the advantage of yielding highly accurate angles. It achieved practical form in 1948 when engineers with Consolidated Vultee Aircraft Corporation created the AZUSA tracking system for the Army, using an interferometer. James Wesley Crooks is credited as inventor of the Atlas radio guidance system and the Azusa and Glotrac launch vehicle tracking systems.
