Modern military stealth technology is based on the principle that stealthy craft remain invis-
ible to detecting radar and infrared sensors, especially at long ranges.
Such technology can be entirely nullified by the detecting radar and/or infrared sensors search-
ing, not for the stealthy craft itself, but for the background behind the stealthy craft. The stealth
craft will then show up in the form of a black or blank silhouette in front of the background.
This is much like the way one can pinpoint with extreme accuracy the location of the moon
during a solar eclipse, and track its movement with great precision, even though during a solar
eclipse one cannot observe the moon itself.
(N.B.: The remainder of this document describes the detailed methods one might use to detect
the background behind stealth craft. Thus it is not necessary to read the entire document in order to
grasp the principle of Anti-Stealth Technology, though one may of course do so to dispel all scep-
ticism as to its practicability.)
Basic Principles of Modern Stealth Technology
Military stealth technology — such as is used, for example, in the B-2 bomber, the F-117
fighter-bomber and the F-22 fighter, and as is intended for the future Comanche helicopter, and the
next-generation tank which is intended to replace the current M1A2 Abrams tank — is based on the
principle that the stealthy craft remains invisible to detecting radar and infrared sensors, especially
at long ranges.
With respect to radar, this is accomplished, in basic principle, by the stealthy craft absorbing
almost all the radar waves emanated by detecting radar sources, and/or reflecting or deflecting the
detecting radar in direction(s) other than towards the detecting sensors. With respect to infrared, the
objective of stealth is achieved, in basic principle, by the stealthy craft minimising heat from its
engines and other heat-emitting spots.
As a result of applying the above prin
