Abstract
TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) proposes new materials with exceptionally high absorbance in the ultraviolet that are designed to be used as obscurants to defeat the dual-band tracking systems used in modern missile systems. The Navy seeks advanced obscurant materials that will protect military assets such as aircraft from these modern missiles. TDA"s new nontoxic materials will be dispersible and tailored to absorb strongly in the UVA portion of the electromagnetic spectrum (315-400 nm). These materials will satisfy the Navy"s need for advanced ultraviolet obscurants to be deployed on aircraft with countermeasure dispersal systems.
