Radar Stealth Technology

Radar Stealth Technology
• RADAR means “Radio Detecting And Ranging” and
STEALTH means “Avoiding Detection”. • Whereas „Radar Stealth Technology’ is used to prevent the detection of aircrafts or planes from radar systems.

Working Of Radars

 Calculation of location and shape • The location and shape of the target is detected by using DSP(Digital Signal Processing) methods.

Concept of RCS

• RCS means Radar Cross-section Area. • Radar cross section is the measure of a target's ability to reflect radar signals in the direction of the radar receiver. • Target‟s RCS(F) is visualized as the product of three factors: F = Projected cross section x Reflectivity x Directivity.

Stealth Technology
• No aircraft is totally invisible to radar, stealth technology prevents conventional radar from detecting or tracking the aircraft effectively. • By employing a combination of features to interfere with radar as well as reduce visibility in the infrared, visual and radio frequency (RF) spectrum

• Geometry:
• Avoiding orthogonal metal plates because this causes reflections.

For minimum RCS

Then we get the architecture like a bird

Absorption of electromagnetic waves:
• Internal construction that must be re-entrant triangles, so that radar waves reflecting off the internal faces and losing energy. • Incoherent scattering +destructive interference+10dB of attenuation + the pyramid shapes + maximize number of bounces.

• Coatings are applied on the surface of stealth aircraft. • Iron ball paint:It contains tiny spheres coated with carbonyl iron or ferrite. • Jaumann absorberJaumann layer consisted of two equally-spaced reflective surfaces and a conductive ground plane. Avoiding Infrared Detection: • Heat is developed when the machines in aircraft are working and also due to friction of air. • Use compressed gas or liquid nitrogen to cool their internal parts.

Preventing noise detection:
• Aircrafts use slow-turning propellers to avoid being heard by enemy troops below. • High altitude. • High speed.

Applications:• Military OperationsSecret operations which is confidential. Emergency protecting. To become a powerful weapon nation. (a strong nation can maintain peace in any situation )

• In Modern days this Stealth Technology is playing a vital role in Military operations. Every fighter plane designs is claiming to have some sort of stealth technology to avoid detection there by reducing the odds of a successful attack.

This Radar Stealth technology is bringing a revolution in military operations of the world. • Having own technology can save money and nation.
