Abstract
Aluminum-coated, glass strands have been used for RF countermeasures (RFCM) for more than 50 years. This type of RFCM system is becoming outdated and potentially ineffective. New material technologies are needed to ensure aircraft RFCM are effective in the 21st century. Through the use of metamaterial technology, it is theorized that a new generation of RFCM chaff could be developed which absorbs or phase shifts the incident electromagnetic (EM) waveforms.
