Triangular titanium radar reflectors (Al to A4) are set at an angle to incoming radar energy. Super-plastic developed by Lockheed is fitted into the cavities formed by the titanium triangles (Bl to B5). Radar reflector plates (C) deflect incoming radar energy (D) and keep it trapped in radar-absorbent plastic (B). RAM Incoming radar energy (D) is deflected and trapped in a triangular cavity filled with plastic RAM. ft Advanced Stealth Design Considerations O and Operational Techniques 33 Conventional aircraft Look-up mode/no return Stealth aircraft ^3 Hostile interceptor Look- Stealth aircraft flying in Fig.

These whiskers are mixed with aluminum powder to form Silag composite. Silag can be used for an aircraft's structural members. Radar-absorbent capabilities of Silag are Kevlar 49. composites in structural applications. Kevlar 49 minimal, but the material is effective for Silicon-Carbide Fibers. A silicon some specific radar wavelengths. material, effective at reducing the infrared signature of a stealth aircraft's engines. S. space shuttles for heat dissipation during atmospheric reentry from Earth orbit.

It is interesting to note that, although a visually reflective surface not desirable is and radar-signature reduction standpoints, it is desirable for reduced infrared signature reduction. This is just one of the many compromises stealth designers must deal with in their quest for "invisible" aircraft. from visual- Acoustic-Signature Reduction Aircraft engines are noisy, If and so are propeller blades and helicopter rotor blades. a stealth aircraft can't be detected by radar or infrared tracking systems or by sighting, at some point it will probably be audible to hostile forces.
