Minimising infrared signatures of aircraft

Mentor: Dr Peter Farrell and Prof. Bill Moran, University of Melbourne
Intern: Anthony Augosta, University of Melbourne
Industry Partner: Dr John Thornton, DSTO
Project Duration: December 2009 to March 2010

Infrared radiation reflected and emitted by aircraft is often used to detect and track aircraft. This project will review current literature on how the infrared signature of aircraft might be manipulated to minimise detection. Options for further investigation will be identified and simple models investigated.
