TEHRAN, Mar. 7 (MNA) -- Iranian experts have gained access to the strategic stealth technology which is only accessed by a few developed countries in the world.
Stealth technology covers a range of techniques used with aircraft, ships and missiles, in order to make them less visible (ideally invisible) to radar and other detection methods.
Iran is currently constructing the biggest L band test room in the Middle East in order to conduct further studies in this regard.
An engineer who calls himself the father of the technology that protects the B-2 stealth bomber from heat-seeking missiles has been arrested and accused of selling U.S. military secrets involving the aircraft to a foreign country, the FBI said. Noshir S. Gowadia, 61, of Haiku was arrested Wednesday.
According to the FBI, Gowadia in 2002 faxed a document detailing infrared technology classified top secret by the Air Force to a foreign official. He also provided classified information to two other countries, the FBI said.
Gowadia was an engineer with Northrop Grumman Corp. from 1968 to 1986 and had helped design parts of the B-2's systems that make the bomber difficult to be seen by the enemy. The technology remains highly classified.
