Are there any aircraft with shields?

Does anyone know, or could possibly tell me if they know of any known tech, that has, or is being used. Like in "STAR WARS"! To protect against missiles etc.... Really like some replies!!!

Come on people, would really like some replies, please..........!!!

We lowly humans are not high tech enough ... wait for another 500 + years, that is if we don't kill ourselfs first starting with WWIII.

impatient are we. Wait longer than 5 minutes some people may be doing research or finding info. As for me I've never heard of anything of that but stealth planes have some stuff(im not for sure what) that makes them near invisible to radars. I heard that if you touched one part of it you will ruin the whole plane and they will need to fix it

500 YEARS!!! You dont really think it could be that long, do you? I mean, it is possible they have at least a basic idea, and practice, no?

ok ok, maybe not 500, we are advancing pretty fast, fine aobut 200 years
happy now

Surely someone else on this subject
......!? And yes i am a bit impatient, sorry.

hmm a protective shield system. well to the best of my knowlage i haven't heard of anything. does that mean it has no chance of eisting then? no just look at how long they had the sr-71 under wraps for example. or the first several years of the manhatten project. likewise tech such as this would be held as something beyond top secret. as such it would be held within the strictist security. chances are that it would also be worked on by people that have very restricted outside contact. this would not make info getting out very likely. it seems that with the manhatten project that the main leaking was done after the bombs were used. and lets be honest about it even IF a foren power were to get ahold of or even a whiff of this tech they likewise would tend to keep their knowlage just as close.

If we can somehow increase energy efficiency and energy output of lasers, it can burn incoming missiles. There is already one like that in the USAF, that airborne laser plane. But it's big and for use against ballistic missiles. I'm thinking about some small, short range laser outfitted on fighters and such that burns incoming missiles when they get close.

Of course, if we're talking about energy shields in the traditional sense, the plasma shields and all that sci-fi stuff, I agree we're about 200 - 500 years off.

500 years? uhmmm no...

MUCH MUCH sooner, currently a Electromagentic shield is being developed for Armored Combat Vehicles.

In the future we will probably develop some type of plasma shield capable of melting away a projectile before it hits or some sort of energy shield that can succesfully absorb a round or whatever.

It's also an essential part for space travel since there are many threats from micro-meteors, raditions etc.

It's in implausible that EM shielding and such will be employed on tanks and aircraft in the next decade or so.

You took the words right out of my mouth Drogo!

Although i disagree that we could be 200-500 years away.
The power we have from the airborne lasers you mentioned, i.e, to fry missiles out of the sky. If we could find a way to harness around the aircraft that energy, then that is surelly feasible. Like a force shield.

500 years????? Why that long?
We couldnt even fly 100 years ago and look at what is in our skies now!

Give us a couple more decades and you wont even be able to see military aircraft anymore! And yes we probably will be building sheilds in the near future (if the USAF doesnt already have them on an unknown aircraft....TR3A/B, Aurora etc.....)

This form of technology is well beyond our reach in terms of technological level. For now, and possibly for another 100-200 years, physical energy shielding will only be a mere dream.

We must all take into account the fact that aviation is still in its infancy, so is stealth, even more so. We have no yet mastered flight, there is still alot to behold and learn and build. Cloaking aircraft are off for another 100 years I'm afraid, there is no true stealth to RADAR, so the chances of jumping straight into visual stealth, would be a large feat to achieve. We live in a world where anything can happen, a very young and under developed world in terms of level of technology. However, people's minds may well be over developed, people are already dreaming of interstellar combat and such, which is far off into the future, nothing graspable.

I fear that there really is no good application for aircraft to have shielding, the best I can think of energy shielding, is for architectual defense, and Galactic ship defense, large vessels with shields, because they have the space and power to carry the energy required to power the shields. The best type of shield I could think of for aircraft that would be most plausible is the Missile Shield, a laser array on an aircraft that shoots down missiles, but that's about it, and perhaps reactive armor.(Reflects bullets)

I honestly doubt there being any good applications for energy shielding on small military vehicles such as aircraft, the best applications would be on structures or even entire bases or cities.

Shattered OUT...

I do structural repairs and modifications on military aircraft. Kevlar plates are used to protect most of the critical components and crew from small arms fire, and then you have chaff and flares to help "trick" missiles into missing their targets.

Nothing like a force field exists on modern military aircraft, its pure science fiction. I doubt that much research is even being done in the area of missile defense systems on aircraft because the threats we are facing now are from unsophisticated enemies with outdated technology for which defense systems are already in place. Thats not to say that they are perfect, but they work well enough that the money that would go into those programs can be spent on something more worthwhile.

I haven't heard of shields but I have heard the USAF is looking at self healing materials developed using nanotechnology that could repair battle damage itself in flight. While it's not the same thing as shields it serves the same purpose by letting a craft take enemy fire and continue to function in battle. It's basically self-healing Kevlar/Armor.

They are most likely right, think about it, apart from Electro Magnetic shielding, how would you make one, the two most plausable would be a "Forced particle field" (Force field) like thing, and that would require a way to hold sub-atomic particles in place, which to my current knowledge is almost impossible with the technology we have today, the other being an energy shield, would require a tremenndous amount of energy to operate, and you'd have to have figured out a way to hold a steady and strong energy bubble around the craft, which is plausable, but again extremely difficult to do with todays technology.

What you really must think about is, how would they do it, not if they have it, actualy, figuring out how it could be done, might tell you if they have it.

Unfotunately IORI_KOMEI, i simply dont have the knowledge, or expertise to exactly explain, how they would, or could, put this into practice.

But all honesty, how do you, or anyone else really know what tech we actually do have. There have been many, and varied opinions, regarding the actual advancements, in military tech. Cant give you names at the moment, in a hurry! But in a lot of these statements many times, they have stated that we are about 50 years ahead of what we have now. Most people are obviously, not aware.

I think BAE have even spoke about this in depth, possibility at least.
So all i am saying, is that if they are talking openly, they could quite easily
have achieved this already.

Just a thought, but you never know!!!

I would not be surprised if we were, but the technology neede is most likely 200-500 years more advanced than what we have now.

Even if the goernment is 100 years more advanced, it is unlikely they have energy barrier producing technology.

In drawing upon my experience as an abductee counselor and Ufologist, I have found no evidence whatsoever that shielding technologies are being used by the Zetan-aliens and their spacecraft or that the US government has developed deflector screen/shielding technology in their black projects.

Much like the arduous task of making a workable lightsaber, true shielding technology is much more difficult to accomplish that most realize. These will remain, at least for the present, only within the realm of science fiction

What the hell is everyone talking about?

airborn lasers are equel to a shield, if thats what you mean!

as for a UFO shield like in "Independence day" there is no need when you can shoot every missile down within a range where it cant hurt you!
