I don't think so.
With the 'creation' of 3d radar of modern day 'stealth' is a pipe dream.
Hell back even during world war two radar was able to pick up naval artillery rounds hitting the water.
No billion dollar paint needed.
Ok, quick and simple physics lesson.
Radar...a radio wave pulse (part of the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS)) is emitted and travels a distance at a known speed. It hits a reflective
object and returns to the point of origin. clever maths allows us to work out the location, size, etc of reflective object.
Magic blacker than black aluminium does not reflect certain wave lengths of the EMS. The point I am making is that we do not know how much of the EMS
the stuff absorbs. If it extends into the radiowave band, a coated object would be radio invisible.
Better still one of the reasons a manned mission to mars is unfeasible, is that cosmic radiation would kill the crew. (Radiation...another bandwidth
of the EMS)
If this material extends to absorb a big enough range of the EMS, this could open up manned deep space exploration.
