Electrical engineers at the University of California in San Diego have created a new design for a cloaking device, using an ultra-thin Teflon substrate, studded with cylinders of ceramic, that can 'bend' light weaves around objects coated with it, creating a cloak. This cloaking device would render unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) invisible, leaving no visual, electronic or infrared signature for an enemy to detect.
The combination of unique sensors, sensor fusion, man-machine interface and the integration of the F-35 as part of a broader fleet of aircraft comprising a totality of air power, are the convincing arguments driving air forces worldwide to opt for the new fighter.
A new Russian UAV is designed with an air cushion that enables operation from rough surfaces.
