Camouflage technology has taken a leap forward with the invention at the ATC of a new form of active stealth. At the flick of a switch, objects can be made to virtually disappear by matching their background. This ground breaking research has now given the company a ten year lead in stealth technology and could redefine the world of 'low-observable' engineering.
New concepts based on novel materials have been realised that allow not only their colours to change but also their infra-red, microwave and radar profile to shift and merge with the background rendering them practically invisible. The effect is built into the structure itself rather than being from an add-on material such as paint or stick-on layer.
