Military scientists have found a way to completely hide objects from a radar

MOSCOW, (BM) – The technology of radar invisibility, developed by scientists from Italy and Russia, is devoid of the main disadvantages of existing solutions for stealth masking. About the new technology, which is based on a completely new principle, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

Radars find objects by capturing EM waves reflected from them. Stealth masking is provided with special coatings that absorb the radar waves, as well as the use of unusual shapes that allow you to redirect the reflected waves not towards the radar.

But as a result, such a disguise worsens the aerodynamic qualities of airplanes, plus, stealth coverage is very expensive. In addition, existing stealth technologies do not provide 100 percent radar invisibility.

In the new Russian-Italian technology, camouflage is created by a fundamentally new solution. Electromagnetic waves generated by radars are not reflected at all from the object and are not absorbed by the coating, but pass through as if there is no object.

An innovative solution allows you to hide from radars objects of any size – even large military complexes, even nanoscale electronic devices. Plus, the new technology is much cheaper than traditional stealth coatings. The development is based on the latest metamaterial, which has a whole range of unique magnetic, electrical, optical, as well as other properties.
