How U.S. Navy’s Micro Models Will Help Submarines Stay Invisible

Recommended Posts

Model submarines small enough to rest on your thumbnail will make sure real submarines stay invisible and aid in identifying enemy submarines and other vessels.

The U.S. Navy is combining two new technologies, 3D printing and nanophotonics, to create precise models showing how submarines and other warships appear to radar. Computer modeling of radar signatures is extremely time-consuming and may get it wrong; the only way to be sure how radar sees something is to put it – or an exact copy — in front of a radar set. https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidhambling/2020/08/11/how-us-navys-micro-models-will-help-submarines-stay-invisible/#5619d94b4d5f
