The possible military uses for this new adaptive technology are extensive.

The ink contained within the spray embodies electromagnetic components that can adjust their electrical change through voltage-control. In addition to doing the same work as whip antennas and radar arrays, the ink could also help military vehicles gain stealth by steering enemy radar waves away, the publication reported.

This stealth spray is anticipated to be flexible enough to be applied onto any surface.

Raytheon, the sponsor of the UMass-Lowell lab, have stated that the spray can also do, “the same work as whip antennas and radar arrays.” The spray on stealth’s principle application will most likely lay in its ability to deflect enemy radar.
