radar signature

radar signature

radar signature
Radar signature from different angles. Here the signature is the minimum when the target is viewed either head-on or tail-on and it is maximum when it is viewed from beam position.
The shape and size of the radar blip received from an aircraft or flying object. The radar signature is a function of target size and its range, aspect, geometric shape, materials, and surface texture. The most vital element of the radar signature is the target aspect. The radar signature will be maximum when the target aircraft is flying at right angles to the radar and least when it is flying head- or tail-on.

The second area of focus is 'decide', for which the system utilises radar signature data and electronic surveillance information to allow for the positive identification of UAV targets.
These features reduced the radar signature to make the missile hard to detect by enemy radar and therefore hard to defend against by the associated air-defense systems.
These include conformal fuel tanks, an enclosed weapons pod, an enhanced engine and a reduced radar signature.
Orbital ATK also provides services for CASTOR[R], Orbus 1A and Oriole motors as well as various specialty support services such as radar signature testing and specialty tooling.

The first test, based on the knowledge that Chandrayaan-1 was in a polar orbit around the moon, revealed a radar signature similar to that of a small spacecraft, and the time gap between the two detections in the four hours of observation was similar to how long Chandrayaan-1 was expected to take for one complete orbit.
The 610-foot-long warship has an angular shape to minimize its radar signature and cost more than $4.
Its angular shape was designed to minimise its radar signature, while its wave-piercing hull and British-built state-of-the-art electric propulsion system makes it so stealth-like that submarine sonar can find it impossible to detect.
Powered by a turbofan engine with S-shaped exhaust to reduce infrared and radar signature and advanced stealth design such as an internal weapons systems, the Predator-C Avenger drone can carry 2000lb GBU-31 JDAM bombs, 150kW HELLADS DEWs (Directed Energy Weapons) and more.
It is not clear exactly what such an apparatus would look like, or how it would impact the F-35's low radar signature and already somewhat paltry kinematics.
Armed with an unspecified number of surface-to-surface cruise missiles, air defense missiles, 130mm cannon and such cutting-edge technology as stealth low radar signature and advanced phased array radar antennae, the ship's displacement is nearly 7,000 metric tons, which is bigger than the previous series.
The ship has electric propulsion, new radar and sonar, powerful missiles and guns, and a stealthy design to reduce its radar signature.
