13. ABSTRACT (maximum 200 words)
This thesis will examine the evolution of stealth, with a focus on RF low observables, and the countertechnologies to detect RF stealth or low observable aircraft, the reasons why an air force needs such technologies,advantages and disadvantages of these assets, and the latest developments in the area.While low observable technologies have been around for nearly half a century, they are still secretive innature and sensitive. This poses problems when conducting unclassified research in this field; nevertheless, this thesiswill address technological details that enable the operational use of stealth assets by examining open sources.Counter-stealth technologies are increasingly relevant, and research in this field is ongoing around the world.This thesis will give information about these efforts and will also discuss the possible solutions that can be applied toa complex air defense network.Finally the thesis will focus on the Turkish Air Force’s possible counter- RF stealth requirements and theevaluation for the desired solution.
