Paper Abstract

Field tests of low IR-reflecting paints designed to reduce aircraft IR signatures are being conducted at the Naval Weapons Center. The relative effectiveness of these paints is determined by making ground-static solar reflectance measurements from large-scale models that have been painted with the candidate IR paints. A comparison is made between the low IR-reflecting paints and the standard paints to determine the amount of reduction in IR skin signature. A documentary film ( 8 min.) depicting the Scale Model Aircraft Reflectance Testing program (SMART) will be shown.
