A Closer Look At Stealth
Aviation Week’s State of Stealth series aims to deliver readers a comprehensive understanding of stealth and counterstealth technology. Much of that low-observable technology resides in shapes and materials that are evident in photographs of the F-117, B-2, F-22 and F-35. Here we illustrate the fundamentals of the technology and highlight some key features of these aircraft. We also present some of the threat systems these aircraft face, both state-of-the art conventional radars as well as sensors, big and small, which are claimed to have counterstealth properties.
