IIT Bombay Offers Short Term Course on Aircraft Technology: Apply Now!

By Malavikka

Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IIT Bombay) is offering a short term course on Aircraft Technology. It is a five days course that covers the evolution of airpower and the ever-increasing component of stealth technology in dictating warfare.


Name of the course:

Aircraft Stealth Technology


IIT Bombay

Key points covered:

  • Principles of Stealth - camouflage, conceal, deceive
  • Active vs. Passive detection
  • Mission Attainment Measure, Aircraft Survival rate, Measure of Mission Success, & Mission Goal
  • Survivability, Susceptibility, Vulnerability of Aircraft & Helicopter in Human-made Hostile Environment
  • Precision Guided Weapons & Role of Stealth Aircraft
  • Introduction to Aircraft Signatures - radar (Radar CrossSection & its reduction), IR, Visual, Aural
  • Introduction to Materials for Stealth
  • Stealth related to air-intakes
  • Stealth related to UCAV design
  • Basics of high frequency RCS of aerospace & naval targets
  • Extremely low frequency electric field modeling & reducing signatures
  • RCS computations for realistic geometries - issues & challenges
  • Design synthesis & modeling of Radar Absorbing Materials
  • Aero-acoustic field & its modeling
  • Simulation & mitigation of laser lethality
  • Principles of IR Radiation - basic laws (Planck's, Wien's Displacement, Kirchhoff's), Grey Body spectrum of Solid Surfaces vs. Line & Narrow Band Emission from Unsymmetrical Gases [e.g. CO2, H2O (vap.)]
  • IR Signatures in 2-3 m, 3-5 m, 8-12 m
  • IR Signatures from Internal Sources - engine heated casing, engine exhaust plume, aerodynamic heating of airframe in supersonic aircraft
  • Simulation of plume for IR signature
  • IR Signatures from External Sources - reflection of earthshine (in 8-12 m), sunshine (in 2-3 m followed by 3-5 m), & sky-shine (in 8-12 m)
  • Role of Atmosphere - attenuation of IR-signature by intervening atmosphere & atmospheric background radiance
  • Relation between IR-Signature and Aircraft / Helicopter Susceptibility - lock-on envelope & lethal envelope for air-to-air combat in horizontal plane
  • IR-Signature Suppression (& its Penalties) - optical blocking, cooling, emissivity optimization
  • IR Countermeasures (IRCM) for point IR-detection - decoys / flares
  • IRC2M - imaging IR-detectors
