The history of Air Defense Artillery (ADA) starts back as far as the revolutionary war, despite not having aircrafts to protect troops from. The Coast Artillery Corps was ADA’s predecessor, and was created to protect our coasts from moving ships. As technology improved, so did warfare. The Coast Artillery Corps was integrated into the Antiaircraft Artillery (AAA) to combat from aerial attacks, such as those from German zeppelins.

World war one affected technology through a couple of things, the most important being weapons. Weapons played a huge role during the war, and in deciding which side would win. World war one affected technology in a few different ways. One of them being guns. They were much bigger than what they were used to, such as a machine gun. Since this new weapon could shoot very rapidly (600 rounds per minute) one of the sides fighting in the war could easily wipe out a whole line of an army in one shot.

Which meant that soldiers could no longer stand in a line and shoot at each other.
