World War II Inventions and Innovations that reinvented the Modern World
World War II is the biggest War ever in history of the World.It killed millions of People,millions sexual abuse and trillion dollars of damage to the properties.
The nations involved in the War need Super Weapons and Machines to kill more people instantly,accurately with minimum damage to them and maximum damage to their enemies.This cruel need made the Nations to invest more money in Research and development.
Due to this Cruel need,Scientist and Engineers forced to work day and night to create a new inventions for the War by their respective nations.
Whether they are Axis or Allied power,each nation had their own inventions or innovations related to World War.Most of the inventions created during the War are mainly for destruction and Sometimes few good inventions were also created for betterment of Human Kind.
Nazi Germany stood tall among the countries in inventions and innovations and followed by Britain,Japan,USA and Soviet Union.
World war ii inventions and innovations by the Axis and Allied Power were responsible for such a loss of life and property during World War II.
These Machines and Weapons of destruction slowly modified and reinvented for better life for the people and for the future World.Some examples of Weapons later used for Betterment of Human kind are Atom Bomb which is later used for Nuclear Power,medicinal researches etc and Enigma was later used in development of Digital Computer and Security technologies.
List of Greatest World War II Inventions and Innovations
During the later stages of the World War, the American and Britain join their hand for a secret project Manhattan.That involved development of a Greatest Weapon ever created by Humans,and its a Nuclear Weapon or famously called as Atom Bomb .
Although it was used by American during World War II against Japan which killed Millions of people,but this Destructive Nuclear Weapon was created by Germans scientist of Jewish Race that includes Albert Einstein.
It was Nazi Germans who were the first to research and develop Nuclear projects for War applications but could not move ahead several German Jewish Physicist including Albert Einstein left Germany and moved to America due political reasons.
Japan also involved in developing weapons of Mass destruction using Nuclear Technology and was not fast as Germans and American due to unavailability of resources.
After the end of the War Nuclear development were done majorly for Constructive purposes such Power Generations project,Medicine and several metallurgical researches.
Guided Missiles are major part of every Army in the World Today.Based on the applications Missiles are called Surface to Surface or Surface to Air etc and based on the distances the missiles are called Continental,short Range or Medium Range missiles.
Again Germans were the first to develop Guided Missiles which has ability to hit targets accurately from long distances.
These Missiles were guided using Radio Signal.German used these Missiles against British forces and hundreds of V1-Missiles used to destroy London City.
V1-Missiles were successful in Nazi Campaign of World War II.Although German were defeated in War,its missile technology were adopted by various Super Powers including USA,Britain,Soviet Union of Russia etc.
These missiles are part of every powerful army today and its is considered as future of Warfare.
V-2 rocket is once again adds credits to Germans and considered as greatest World war ii inventions and innovations as it is the first Man made object which reached the Outer Space.It was built by German in 1942.
Today’s Rockets which we use for launching Satellite and Space travel are carbon copy of Germans V2-Missiles and its is difficult to imagine the existence of communication System such TV,Internet,Mobile phone etc without invention of Space Rockets by Germany.
Although Nazi Germany created V2-Missile for destruction purposes but today it is used for constructive purpose and special thanks for Germans for making it.
Radar,Sonar and Radio Navigation’s
Radar invented by Germans,Sonar and Radio Navigation Systems by English engineers ,all three of them has wide range of Applications in today Navigation systems existing in Ships,Submarines and Airplanes.
All of these three things were made for the purpose of War and Destruction but today these are used for various applications such as Navigation ,Deep Water Fishing,Deep Water Researches,Security and its Successor is GPS which has wide applications in Armies and today every Smartphone and Car is equipped GPS which is used Navigation such as Street Address,Hospitals etc.
Because of GPS enabled Cellphone today traveling became so easy.Today’s GPS is only a digital version Radio Navigation system created during World War II.
Enigma is considered as most accurate predecessor of today modern digital computer due to its complex mechanical and electrical calculations involved in its.
Enigma is designed to send encrypted messages to various fronts during war .On the receivers side these messages are decoded using another enigma machine.
Enigma machines were designed and developed by Germans and for long time Allied forced could not decode the messages sent by Germans this gave Germans great advantage in the War.
But after several year of research by British Scientist Alan Turing after getting several models of German Enigma machine decoded it.
After Alan Turing decoded the Enigma messages the Wartime in Europe reduced by 2 to 4 years.After Germans defeated Alan Turing became father of Computer Science.
Alan Turing is considered as father of Computer Science as he decoded Enigma machine,so you could imagine how complex and power is the Enigma is.
Today SSL ,Web security ,and all security system were designed using Enigma Machine and which also led development of algorithms and computer programs which we are using in today computers.
So Enigma is considered as greatest world war ii inventions and innovations in the field of Computer Science.
