About This Intelligence Course

In this course, we delve into the relevant aspects of low observable concepts, the technology used in the production of stealth aircraft, counter-stealth techniques and the implications to spectrum warfare—all critical knowledge areas for defense and intelligence analysts.

The course is part of the FedLearn spectrum warfare learning series.

Learn about the active and passive detectable signatures used to find, fix, track, target, engage and assess stealth aircraft.

We also review radar theory basics, take note of the radar equation used to determine probable detection ranges and describe how to measure an aircraft's radar cross section.

In addition, we look at the role of a Serbian SA-3 crew and the poor NATO tactics that led to the F-117 shootdown and study current counter-stealth techniques.

Lastly, we compare the advantages and disadvantages to employing stealth aircraft.

What You Will Learn

  • Distinguish between active and passive signatures
  • Identify factors affecting an aircraft's radar cross section signature
  • Describe RCS signature reduction techniques
  • Identify counter-stealth techniques
  • Name the pros and cons of employing stealth aircraft
