  • Turbulence detectors to negate Stealth ?

    Came across this line in a wikipedia stealth article

    "A number of methodologies to detect stealth aircraft at long range have been developed. Both Australia and Russia have announced that they have developed processing techniques that allow them to detect the turbulence of aircraft at reasonably long ranges (possibly negating the stealth technology)."

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stealth_bomber

    Does anybody have any information on the the actual working / practicality of such a device and how it is going to be able to differentiate between atmoshpheric disturbances and turbulence at Long ranges ?

    Maybe a big target at high speeds mach 1+ possibly, but theres ALOT of normal atmospheric turbulence. If anyone had a guarenteed method of detecting stealth aircraft half the military organizations in the world would be changing their ground and air based radar sets.

    That isen't happening so I seriously doubt anyone has reliably cracked the stealth issue yet.

      Thought as much too
      seemed quite ambitous for 2 countries too declare that they have tech as such
      Tho still wanted to check if there was anymore information out there
      thanks
