C-5 • Passive (multistatic) radar, bistatic radar[43] and especially multistatic radar systems detect some stealth aircraft better than conventional monostatic radars, since first-generation stealth technology (such as the F-117) reflects energy away from the transmitter's line of sight, effectively increasing the radar cross section (RCS) in other directions, which the passive radars monitor. Y1C-17 • Die beiden Waffenschächte werden, wie die Fahrwerksbuchten, lediglich bei Bedarf geöffnet, die Kanten der Cockpitverglasung, Ruderflächen, Betankungseinrichtung und Sensorik sind entsprechend den oben genannten Prinzipien gestaltet.

Although it was commonly referred to as the "Stealth Fighter", it was strictly a ground-attack aircraft. GAO/NSIAD-97-134 pp. 2, High Stealth Conceptual Studies", showed the rounded concept that was rejected in favor of the flat-sided approach.[36].

F-10 • XR6O / R6V • [10], The Air Force had once planned to retire the F-117 in 2011, but Program Budget Decision 720 (PBD 720), dated 28 December 2005, proposed retiring it by October 2008 to free up an estimated $1.07 billion[64] to buy more F-22s. The F-117 was widely publicized for its role in the Persian Gulf War of 1991. As it prioritized stealth over aerodynamics, it earned the nickname "Wobblin' Goblin" due to its alleged instability at low speeds.

The last F-117 (AF Serial No. Though far from the traditional, sleek aircraft designs preferred by Skunk Works founder Kelly Johnson, the F-117’s unique design enabled it to reflect radar waves. F-35, PBO • [20] Rich called on Bill Schroeder, a Lockheed mathematician, and Overholser, a computer scientist, to exploit Ufimtsev's work. XPB-3 • It was the first operational aircraft to be designed around stealth technology. [24], The F-117 was secret for much of the 1980s. The obvious and logical conclusion was that even a large aircraft could reduce its radar signature by exploiting this principle. XB-30 • MQM-105 • Dozens of F-16s were routinely tasked to attack Baghdad in the first few days of the war. F-97 • [52], The aircraft was operated in secret from Tonopah for almost a decade, but after the Gulf War the aircraft moved to Holloman in 1992—however, its integration with the USAF's non-stealth "iron jets" occurred slowly.

Wenn Sie KVH-Mitglied sind und hier nicht finden, was Sie suchen, hat unsere info.line immer ein offenes Ohr für Ihr Anliegen. The F-117A program demonstrates that a stealth aircraft can be designed for reliability and maintainability.

It was downed during a Operation Allied Force mission against the Army of Yugoslavia on 27 March 1999. L-2000 • As one senior F-117A pilot later said: Because of ongoing secrecy others continued to see the aircraft as "none of their business, a stand-alone system".
