Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL INVOLVES AN INNOVATIVE COATING WHICH CAN REDUCE THE THERMAL SIGNATURE OF A TARGETS WHILE ALSO ABSORBING MICROWAVES OVER SELECTED FREQUENCY BAND. THIS COATING IS A THIN FILM WHICH CAN BE APPLIED TO A FLEXIBLE PLASTIC FILM AND TO EXTEND SIGNATURE CONTROL OVER A MULTI-SPECTRAL REGION. THE COATING CONSISTS OF A THIN FILM DEPOSITED OVER A THIN RESISTIVE LAYER. THE METAL FILM IS PATTERNED TO FUNCTION AS ANTENNA-LIKE ELEMENTS LOADED BY A RESISTOR WHERE VALUE IS DETERMINED BY THE EXPOSED PORTION OF THE RESISTIVE SHEET UNDERNEATH. THE ADDED WEIGHT AND VOLUME OF THESE LAYERS IS NEGLIGIBLE, SO THE FINAL STRUCTURE WILL BE LIGHT AND WHEN FOLDED, OCCUPY LITTLE VOLUME. IT COULD BE EASILY CARRIED FOR PERSONNEL PROTECTION TO SUPPRESS IR RADIATION WITH ABSORBING AT MICROWAVE FREQUENCIES.
