OUR ANSWER TO YOUR MOST CHALLENGING, STEALTH TECHNOLOGY NEEDS? YES

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Radar signature reduction is a must in order to increase the battle-field effectiveness of any contemporary platform or long-range armament. The crucial step in radar signature reduction or stealth technologies is the determination of the radar signature of the platform under consideration. The following actions can be performed upon the determination of the signature:

  • Shape changes can be affected for platforms under development
  • Radar absorbing coatings can be used on certain parts of the platform, and
  • Strategic plans for approach-to-target patterns can be tailored

The RIKA software analyzes the radar signature of any platform based on its CAD model and provides ali the necessary information to realize these actions.
