Gallery Description
The Plotting, Spotting & Radio (PSR) facility for Battery Townsley is a separate, hardened bunker located down the hill from the Battery proper, and was targeting 'fusion center' and command post for Battery Townsley. It was here that target observations and tracking information from the numerous Base End Stations along the coast were fed, and the the people in the PSR would determine exactly where the guns would be aimed in order to hit a moving target, taking into account such things as the Earth's rotation, winds aloft, air pressure, temperature & humidity as well as information on the target's speed & bearing, all of which were critical in knowing where to aim the gun in order to hit the moving target after the projectile flies through the air for up to a minute! Pretty amazing they were able to do all this in the 1940s. The Townsley PSR room is secured, due to asbestos contamination.
