Abstract
Proliferation of infrared sensors in target acquisition systems and precision guided munition seekers has a major impact on survivability of aircraft, ships, and surface vehicles. Recent advances in materials and thin film technologies have producedeffective IR signature control coatings that can be tailored for performance from the visible through all of the infrared threat bands while being compatible with underlying RF treatments. Sigma proposes to produce three different types of appliques tocover a variety of applications with particular focus on dielectric constant (RF transparency), and durability under extreme environmental conditions. All proposed applique systems will be configured to meet various conventional requirements, includingweatherability, solvent resistance, color, and gloss. Phase I samples will be produced in large scale production equipment that will allow future scale-up for field test trials.IR signature reduction appliqu¿ systems will improve safety and reduceoperation costs. Non DOD applications for such appliqu¿ technologies include commercial and private aircraft, automotive, thermal control, security, and various specialty coatings.
