Navy looks into Ultra Voilet cloak for stealth aircraft


The Navy's invested good money in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, which obscures radar waves and redirects engine heat to evade recognition by infrared sensors. But that stealth flier is still vulnerable to another type of detection which is UV sensors. The pentagon recently began soliciting proposals to develop a device that cloaks aircraft from UV detection systems. The hope is that such a technology could shield aircraft from missile seekers that scan the sky.
