Nano Enabled Coating Makes Aircraft Invisible
Nanomaterial use in construction, in coatings, in site remediation, and on invisible planes.The Israel-based YnetNews is Reporting that an Israeli company called Nanoflight has successfully run a test on dummy missiles that were painted with the nano-enabled coating and have shown that radar could not pick them up as missiles.
The nanocoating achieves its radar trickery by absorbing the radio waves emitted by the radar and scattering them as heat energy enough so that when the radar gets the bounced back signal it is not regular enough to indicate an object. A spokesman for Nanoflight, Eli Shaldag, is quoted in the article indicating that the company is in the second stage of its development process after which they will be able to produce the coating in larger quantities.
Nanomaterial use in construction, in coatings, in site remediation, and on invisible planes. Certain nanomaterials can improve the strength of concrete, serve as self-cleaning and self-sanitizing coatings. These paving slabs are coated with titanium dioxide (TiO2). Titanium dioxide is a photo catalyst; it uses sunlight to accelerate a naturally occurring. An Israeli company has developed a paint for airplanes that can make them invisible to radar.
Air Force Research Laboratory
The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is the Air Force’s only organization wholly dedicated to leading the discovery, development, and integration of war fighting technologies for our air, space and cyberspace forces. AFRL traces its roots back to the vision of early airpower leaders who understood science as thekey to air supremacy. The passionate commitment of our people to realize this vision has helped create the world's best air, space and cyberspace force.
AFRL’s mission is leading the discovery, development and integration of affordable war fighting technologies for America’s aerospace forces. It is a full-spectrum laboratory, responsible for conceiving, planning and executing the Air Force’s science and technology program. AFRL leads a worldwide government, industry and academia partnership in the discovery, development and delivery of a wide range of revolutionary technologies. The laboratory provides leading-edge war fighting capabilities keeping our air, space and cyberspace forces the world’s best.
Personnel and Resources
The lab employs approximately 5,400 government people, including about 1,300 military and 4,100 civilian personnel. It is responsible for the Air Force’s science and technology budget of nearly $2 billion including basic research, applied research, advanced technology development and an additional $1.7 billion fromAFRL customers.
AFRL accomplishes its mission through nine technology directorates located across the United States,
through the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and with the support of a central staff. The directorates are: Air Vehicles Directorate, Directed Energy Directorate, Human Effectiveness Directorate, Information Directorate, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Munitions Directorate, Propulsion Directorate, Sensors Directorate, and Space Vehicles Directorate.
