IT was just an exemple, In the same time the triangle shape is favorite for the stealth, may be some demonstrator flying somewhere I don't know. I go back to the thread about the LRS-B. Bassplyr ok we are out of the thread

Man I must be the only guy on this thread who would use frodos invisibility cloak for the wrong purposes. (hang out in women's locker rooms or something. I know I know I'm a disgusting person)

You are all better men then me.

Hmmm... You like to nudge us to answers on our own. You've heard of a new material. And you mentioned concrete in an off the cuff statement.

Clearly this new aircraft is made from an exotic form of concrete!

Is cement, thus concrete, not crystalline in nature?

Methinks it is.

Maybe he was hinting at exotic neatly ordered crystalline Polymers? but then...I have nothing concrete to go on - I use porcelain

Can a bunch of BLOCK heads like us be wrong?








P.S. don't answer that.....

So to follow it to its logical conclusion, maybe, just maybe Zaphod58 was telling you to look into unidirectional crystalline polymer composites.

You know, the stuff that drinks up EM energy like a sponge but 'all my bass-tards' doesn't like giving any back.

Concretes a good analogy - Pour in some crystalline natured 'stuff', and some 'filler' stuff, a little bit of liquid, mash it up in a mixer, pour in casts to shape, then let set at room temps or just above.

Or some thing.

Got out your crystalline ball again? Lol

This is a great conversation.

However the obvious answer but I won't say it is...



Man I'd like to be the fly over at Zaphods.

And I'd thought I'd share this video. Some interesting insight into stealth.
It's a crock according to him.

Next time you meet up with Zaphod, be careful, Zathros has back-up now.

Zaphod, Zathros? I'm taking it Zaph is a fan of the Hitchikers guide to the universe?

Lol when we get together the men in black are standing by with long distance audio recorder an trying to listen to us. We've exchanged stuff in the past that would be questionable to the government.

Nah, that's just secretprojects forum members pissed as #### at not getting a boomer 135 special event.

How many crew/pilots does anyone think this new bird will carry? Will it have room for a chaise (or in my case a bean bag chair)?

If it has as many systems and is as adaptable as it looks like it way be, I can't image it having any less than 2.

Especially if it is undertakes long duration missions like the B2. Someone needs to sleep while the other flies if they are on a 40+ hour mission.

Today from the Air Force Global Strike Command:



"Graphene is a relatively new form of carbon, first synthesized in 2004. It's a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a repeating hexagonal pattern--like chicken wire," said Air Force Deputy to the Chief Scientist Lt. Col. Dennis Rand. "Because it's only one atom deep, graphene is essentially a two-dimensional material, and as a result it has unusual properties relating to things like heat conduction, electrical conductivity, and optical density."

My idiot dog likes everyone. He just didn't like the fact that you were talking to me and ignoring him.

I could sit and write 10 little blurbs about graphene, and you'd maybe at a push believe 3 of them.

How is graphene relevant to low observable vehicles? quite simply conductivity and transference.
Lets look at transference first - in a high speed vehicle aka aircraft, air resistance creates friction (which cannot be negated unless you utilise exotic 'nice stuff'. On top of air resistance you have incoming EM radiation, which again, generates both current and heat. So what can graphene do?

It can be 'layered' in a specific direction to rapidly move 'heat'. Start at the hot spot, run the layer to an area that is (A) normally not an area an enemies IR sensor will see, and (B) being cooled by either airflow or circulated super cooled fuel aka 'heat sink'.

The exact same method is used for incoming EM radiation. The F22 changes the electrical current to heat that's outside of the normal spectrum of enemy sensors. Great idea. Well, that was until the Russians and Chinese developed a sensor 'eye' that can cycle through the entire IR spectrum.

Again, on your 'hot spots', layer up. Run that graphene strip (sandwich, but you know what I am on about) across the aircraft into a storage medium. That's right, zero need to change it to heat. Its simply supped up.

We won't even start looking at graphene reinforced ceramics for aviation, as that's a touchy subject. ahhh hell, yeah why not?

So - you have your beautiful strong 3-D printed shell. Problem is, its cracking up and not holding to the tolerances you promised the USAF / DoD.

What the hell do you do?

Make a graphene envelope. You have an empty mould - you are about to layer down into it, but first in goes the graphene ribbon. Onto that goes the first layer, ribbon layered onto that, so on and so forth. Then voila, last layer is your graphene.

You just created a monster. Frankenstein would be proud. Crack out all of your snazzy jazzy paints, colour it pink, then grey to suit the USAF. The beauty is? your outer skin paintswill also be impregnated, and has created a system that takes incoming EM AND heat and draws it into the aircraft to be either stored or absorbed.

That's worth the price tag alone.
