Aviation weapons system on the E-2C require
search radar to find targets.
That’s analog.
Targets presented to radarscopes,
appear as smudges
as the sweep goes ’round.
Computers paint digital targets,
create files of altitude,
aircraft type,
heading and speed.
Our emotions find a target –
another human or an ugly
situation – while our intellect
paints a logical image
of the target.
The radarscope analog smudge
gets covered by crisp,
new digital image.
Select the digital target
to see related info over,
or near, the analog smudge.
Yes, that’s what we do.
