      Fortunately, there are a few techniques you can use to help make this conversion easier. If you don’t have access to our calculator, you can also use a military time chart. This chart makes it easy to convert time from one format to the other. To minimize confusion, military time blends out all those oddities and exceptions and uses only the 25 primary, full-hour time zones, from UTC-12 to UTC+12. Converting military time to the 12-hour format is simple for the first half of the day, from 1 am to 12 pm, as the numbers are the same in both systems. The only difference is that the 24-hour format adds a leading zero to single-digit numbers. Both digital wristwatches and 24-hour clocks are sources of military time. Many digital watches provide the option of displaying the time in either regular or military format. Switching back and forth is usually done by pressing a button labeled “12/24” or something similar several corporations manufacture 24-hour clocks. Zulu time, also known as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), is a standardized time that is used as a reference for the world’s time zones. It is based on the time at the Prime Meridian, which is the line of longitude that passes through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, England. Zulu time is often used in the military and in aviation, as it allows for clear and precise communication of times across different time zones. To keep military operations in sync, Zulu time is used. Zulu time (known as Greenwich Mean Time) is the same, everywhere. Each time zone around the world has a letter assigned to the zone. The letter Z identifies the time zone in Greenwich, England. Since military organization could be in several time zones around the world, Zulu time allows for exact timing of any event anywhere in the world. Since there are 24 time zones around the world, Zulu time is universally understood and is used to ensure clear and effective communications anywhere on the planet. Did you already learn how to convert basic hours between both time formats without conversion charts?
