Bringing the radars to life
Bringing the radars to life

HMS Belfast served Britain for 32 years and is the only surviving vessel of her type to have seen active service during the Second World War. In a newly restored Operations Room, visitors walk into the midst of an exercise based on 1961’s ‘Operation Pony Express’.

The room’s radars needed to be animated for the experience and Science Projects were given the challenge of fitting realistic radar animations into the original radar units without disturbing or modifying the historical hardware. With guidance from veterans and experts, we are delighted to have brought the radars back to life after all the years of silence.
