As the sophistication of acquisition sensors and weapon systems increases, signature management and deception techniques are playing an even more important role in modern warfare by increasing the survivability of vital assets.
All military ground installations and platforms have distinctive radar signatures. The application of signature management techniques and materials makes it possible to protect these by adapting and reducing their signatures to make them less detectable. This, together with the use of radar decoys, confuses the attacking force by making it very difficult to identify the target or the size of the threat.
Trelleborg’s RAM can be applied to a platform in a variety of forms, enabling the most suitable material to be used across the widest range of applications. In addition, radar scattering and absorbing materials can be combined with camouflage, infrared (IR) and thermal materials to provide multi-spectral signature reduction.
