We all know that the No:3 detector or Polish detector was developed in 1942 by the Pole Jozef Kosacki and the American detector set the SCR-625 was first in service in September 1942 ready for the North African campaign, was this shared technology joint British American cooperation or did the Americans developed their detector on their own.

From what I remember it was a project developed in the US using public metal detectors as the base design.

Interesting I thought the Polish guy invented the first metal detector. If the Americans copied theirs from a public one then why didn't the British copy the same technology, after all both British and American detector work on the same principle. During the war both countries shared each other's radio technology it's written in the US Signal Corps history in the 3 books The emergency, the threat, and the outcome.
