At sea - the navy's first off-shore radar station takes up its vigil. A huge platform atop pilings anchored in the ocean floor, it carries a complex array of radar equipment to guard the water approach to the nation's shores-and it boasts all the facilities to make it a home for its crew of technicians. The first in a coastal chain of sea sentinels. Establishing shot - Off shore radar station in the Atlantic Ocean. MCUS / Overhead - Battleship. MLS - Boat with crew.
