By my understanding, the F-22 has a silver/polymer based RAM. I am not sure what classification this would fall under, Iron Ball paint (Silver ball?) or Foam Absorber? A case could be made for Jaumann absorber as well.

I am writing a report on RCS reduction so anything is appreciated. Thanks.

My apologies if my questions may allude to any breaches of OPSEC.

I kind of suspect that composition details fall under OPSEC. I'd just go based off what you can find on FAS, Global Security, and websites like that :wink: :wink:

There are a few references in available academic papers by university researchers. That would be a good place to start. The F-22 uses a combination of RAM technologies depending on the location on the airframe.

Well I wasn't looking for the composition per se but rather the classification of radar absorbent material.

Thanks man, I'll look into that.

You wouldn't by chance know of any search engine for these academic papers, would you?

Looks like they don't recognize my high school. Thank you anyways, that scholar.google.com site looks pretty helpful.

Check with your teachers. Chances are pretty good that one of them is affiliated with a university that does have access.
