RF stealth (or low observable) and counter-RF stealth technologies implications of counter-RF stealth solutions for Turkish Air Force
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis will examine the evolution of stealth, with a focus on RF low observables, and the counter technologies to detect RF stealth (or low observable) aircraft, the reasons why an air force needs such technologies, advantages and disadvantages of these assets, and the latest developments in this area. While low observable technologies have been around for nearly half a century, they are still secretive in nature and sensitive. This poses problems when conducting unclassified research in this field; nevertheless, this thesis will address technological details that enable the operational use of stealth assets by examining open sources. Counter-stealth technologies are increasingly relevant, and research in this field is ongoing around the world. This thesis will give information about these efforts and will also discuss the possible solutions that can be applied to a complex air defense network. Finally the thesis will focus on the Turkish Air Force's possible counter-RF stealth requirements and the evaluation for the desired solution.
