This is a survey of the state of the art in industrial and scientific applications of short-range radar, describing some of the problems encourntered and detailing several current installations. Railways are defined as one of the growth areas for Doppler radar applications, being used for speed sensing on the Advanced Passenger Train as an alternative to exle-driven tachometers which are affected by wheel slip. Other applications being examined are wheel slip indication, warning of maintenance personnel of the approach of trains, and for location signals in making road tests. Doppler radar is used for speed control in hump classification yards in Europe and America.
