Stealth is not a single technology, but a group of aligned disciplines. Those disciplines, in turn, need to be brought together in a workable, affordable and practical vehicle.
The Art of Deception
As Aviation Week & Space Technology approaches its centennial in 2016, our senior editors cast their eyes back to iconic developments that have changed the shape of the industry – and to the future to predict the paths they might follow. In the first of a special series, we explore the art of deception: stealth.
Lester D. Gardner published the first issue of Aviation Week’s predecessor magazine at 120 W. 32nd Street, in New York City - close to where I now publish Aviation Week & Space Technology. Our core mission of being essential to the still-growing aviation, aerospace and defense community hasn’t even moved that far!
I think Mr. Gardner would be proud that the Aviation Week team has continued to excel at providing “accurate, scientific and unbiased” information that serves as a “great stimulus” to the success of the industry.
Even as our content is now deployed via print, digital and event channels around the world and into space, we commit to the industry that these values of utility and service will continue to be our guiding light.
