What is Stealth Technology ?

 Stealth is a technique in which we can make any object invisible.

 Stealth is an important technology which used in military operations.

 Stealth technology also known as LO technology (low observable


technology)
HISTORY

The first "stealth" aircraft have been developed in Germany during


the last years of WWII.

This technique has also


been used in ships.

Later americans worked on stealth technology


And suceeded.
RADAR CROSS-
SECTION
REDUCTIONS

Almost since the invention of radar, various


techniques have been tried to minimize
detection.
Some of the techniques used for this purpose
are:
1. vehicle shape
2. radar absorbing material
STEALTH VECHICLE SHAPES & DESIGN

It should be coated with the Radar Absorbing Materials.

It’s tail should kept an ACUTE angle.

Planes wings has to kept at Angle.

Design of Nose.

Stealth aircraft must bury the Engines within the wing or fuselage.
A corner reflector is a retroreflector
consisting of three mutually perpendicular,
intersecting flat surfaces, which reflects
electromagnetic waves back towards the
source.
Difference between conventional &
stealth aircraft design

While we use Stealth Technology

STEALTH AIRCRAFT WITHOUT


EXHAUST
Sensors
 For navigation and weapon aiming, the aircraft is equipped with a forward-
looking infrared (FLIR) and a downward-looking infrared (DLIR) sensors

It consist of four probes at the nose.


COCKPIT
HEAD UP DISPLAY

The cockpit has Head-up display.

equipped with large video monitors.

The cockpit has a full-colour moving map.


FLIGHT
MANAGEMENT
Before flight, mission data is downloaded on to
the IBM AP-102 mission control computer, which
integrates it with the navigation and flight controls
to provide a fully automated flight management
system.
What is Radar Absorbing
Materials (Stealth)?

Nanostructural composite
material, absorbing

Magnetic ferrite-based substance

RAM reduces the radar cross

ADVANTAGE

Stealth aircraft are invisable to radar.

Develop the military secretes.

Saving military budget.


DISADVANTAGE
Stealth technology has its own disadvantages like other
technologies.
Stealth aircraft cannot fly as fast or is not maneuverable like
conventional aircraft.
Another serious disadvantage with the stealth aircraft is the
reduced amount of payload it can carry.
On the other hand a conventional aircraft can carry much more
payload than any stealth aircraft of its class.
Cost of maintenance
CONCLUSION
Stealth technology is a techniques used
with Aircrafts, ships order to make them
less visible to radar.

Need of Stealth Technology very


importance in military field.
