    Default China develops new aircraft cloaking material


    A Chinese J-31 stealth fighter performs at the Airshow China 2014 in Zhuhai.

    Scientists have announced a breakthrough in the development of an
    effective new stealth technology.



    Stealth jets are about to get a little stealthier. That is, if Chinese engineers have anything to say about it. And, presumably, they do.

    A group of researchers at Huazhong University of Science and Technology have published details on a chameleon-like stealth material that reactively tunes itself to absorb radar signals at different frequencies. The AFSS material — “active frequency selecting surface” — can be to coat the exterior of stealth aircraft so that’s they’re rendered invisible to specific detection techniques.

    According to this interesting report at Ars Technica, current stealth technology only works against radars in a particular range — the SHF, or super high frequency range, if you’re keeping score at home. But stealth craft are vulnerable to radar detection and targeting systems operating in the UHF range, or ultra high frequency.

    The AFSS material would actually adjust itself to match and absorb longer-length frequencies when those wavelengths are detected, facilitating a kind of shapeshifting on the fly — literally. The technology incorporates several different systems using radically miniaturized diodes that act as resistors to electromagnetic radiation.

    When combined with other stealth technologies, like those weird geometric designs that deflect radar waves, the AFSS technology could be the next big step in stealth aircraft development.

    The material is ultra thin, too, measuring only 7.8 mm when applied as a coating to metal and other surfaces. It consists of two layers supported by a third honeycombed layer provides separation from the underlying surface. The prototype AFSS system has been shown to absorb radio frequencies ranging from 0.7 to 1.9GHz, reducing reflectivity by anywhere from 10 to 40dB, researchers say.

    “As radar detection equipment continues to improve, our thin absorbers with broad bandwidth and working in the UHF band will be widely useful,” the researchers conclude. The study was published in the latest edition of the Journal of Applied Physics.

    China's "NOTICE: To the World"...


    (my satirical joke to any readers who know already know my opinion on the F-35 program... front for black ops spending... )


    and the timing couldn't be more interesting ...o.O?!

    isn't this supposed to be military technology, hush, hush, and top secret and all that paranoid BS (the opposite of US text book policy o.O?) ... o.O?!

    I love the way they just put it out there, like a "Popular Science" piece... LoLs!

    Exactly sig!

    Besides, this statement is a totally 100% Falsity:

    Quote current stealth technology only works against radars in a particular range — the SHF, or super high frequency range, if you’re keeping score at home.
    However, if someone was really interested in how China may have had a "Breakthrough in the development of an effective new stealth technology", they might want to go back and revisit the disappearance of Flight MH-370.

    And specifically,

    - The 20 senior staff members of Freescale Semiconductor who were on board.

    - How Freescale Semiconductor is associated with the Raytheon Company.
    - Raytheon Vision Systems (RVS) - Electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) system.
    - Freescale Semiconductor Bolometers which have further enabled this technology.
    - How the Raytheon Company is associated with the Boeing Company.
    Well, In this case I can't provide a specific link because it's not in the public domain. But here are a couple of nifty pictures for you to look at!


    Boeing Test System 3 (TS-3)


    TS-3 Uniquely Parked At The Military Flight Center - Boeing Field (2010)
    And in case you still haven't figured out what I'm talking about, it's all about the detection of:

    - Invisible Planes: China, US Race for Cloaking Tech.

    With all of the above adding up to a possible explanation for the:

    - 2015 Tianjin Explosions

    Are you saying China might be in on MH-370? that has been posed as a possibility before... although it still creates a few questions... o.O?
