Everything you ever wanted to know about Stealth Tech
What is "Stealth"?
Firstly, what is Radar?
The idea is for the radar antenna to send out a burst of radio energy, which is then reflected back by any object it happens to encounter. The radar antenna measures the time it takes for the reflection to arrive, and with that information can tell how far away the object is.
The metal body of an airplane is very good at reflecting radar signals, and this makes it easy to find and track airplanes with radar equipment.
Over here, once we talk of Stealth tech. we will, for simplicity sake, consider two categories, i.e. Passive Stealth and Active Stealth technologies.
The goal of stealth technology is to make an airplane invisible (Low Observable) to radar. Following are some ways to create invisibility (Low Observability):
Since, Stealth Tech has been broadly classified into two categories,
