Aircraft Combat Survivability and Radar Cross Section (RCS)

The aircraft combat survivability discipline has come a long way since WWII. New stealth aircraft have been designed with survivability as one of the most relevant pillars. F-117 fighter and B-2 bomber represent a turning point in this context, bringing a new way of conducting raids: extremely stealthy and lethal, thanks mainly to the denial of their RCS. The webinar will start with basic concepts of RCS, followed by a case of study that illustrates how proper management of RCS could improve the aircraft combat survivability against radar detection. Finally, the webinar will discuss some technology trends directed to RCS reduction.
