Abstract

We have developed a novel type of military obscurant that is based on the fabrication of composite particles with precisely defined geometries. These particles have very high infrared extinction efficiencies with peak extinction wavelengths that are directly correlated to the major and minor dimensions of the particles. By combining populations of particles, obscurants clouds can be produced that block or pass specific wavelengths in the near, mid, and far IR regions of the spectrum. During the Phase II program we will optimize the fabrication process, and design and build a system for larger scale production of the material.
