United States Army Communications Electronics Museum

Since 1917, the U.S. Army has been pioneering electronic-communications technology, bringing about significant technological and scientific breakthroughs. Fort Monmouth was instrumental in developing the first radio-equipped meteorological balloon in 1928 and aircraft detection radar 1938. In 1946, the feasibility of space communication was demonstrated here. A variety of exhibits feature photographs and artifacts that tell the story of the developments made here. Radar, transistors, night vision devices, communication and weather satellites, mass production of printed circuits, solar batteries, and other items which are today so common owe a debt to the innovation of Fort Monmouth’s technical teams.
