Abstract
This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both variable IR and RCS signatures in one device, which will be all composite; having no metallic components, have no electrical power demands and will fit into the ejection cavities on existing targets.
