Caption: Labelled diagram of a VT, or proximity, fuze. Proximity fuzes automatically detonate an explosive device when the distance to a target falls below a predetermined value. The distance is measured by a small radar set within the fuze. Proximity fuses were invented by the British military in 1939 and developed by the US. They were one of the most important innovations of World War II.
