The photos clearly show that the primary reconnaissance payload is a sensor ball covered by a "greenhouse" comprising three panels of radar-reflective, infrared-transparent material. Such materials may be classified, but they are not new.
They cover foundations of infrared-transparent materials, the service environment of infrared anti-reflective and protective coatings, the optical design of coating systems, preparation methods of coatings, amorphous diamond films, germanium-carbide film, boron phosphide thin films, alumina thin films, yttrium oxide thin films, and infrared transparent conductive oxide thin film.
