Quoting Brendan Dore
Aight, prepare for some explainin'.
Brendonian scientists have developed the newest in radar technology: Grid Form Pulsating Frequency Radar. It's still kind of a WIP, but the basic premise of it is that some sort of frequency generator would "pulse" the frequency until it found a frequency being generated/ given off by another ship/ vehicle/ plane's radar. The computers would then dial in on that frequency, sort of like wild weasels, just not with SAMs. The generator would also produce a "grid" of pulsating frequencies over a certain area. The stealth craft would stick out like the invisible man in the rain. No copies of this technology are being sent to other countries. None. Period.
Oh I see, so you're basically taking my system, which tracks other radar to find its wavelength, and then sends out a negative wavelength to neutralize the radar reception, and reversing it so that the system actually tracks other radars? Nice.
You do realize, that while you don't give out your system to anyone else, I can basically tweak my system to accommodate the same basic principal, and then use my own system components to function both ways?
I got your number, good thing we're allies... Permalink
Quoting Will Gober
How do you steer this energy into the direction you want it to go? Wouldn't it just blow up the ship?
Well, the bomb goes off, the blast reflects off the pusher plate and the ship goes fowards.
You use the RCS thrusters to decide where 'fowards' is. That is, you want to go left, you turn the nose of the ship to the left and fire the engine for a bit.
Nope. The ship would be designed specifically for the job, and with a bit of leeway in case of accidents. With the oil sprayed on the plate before each explosion, the plate wouldn't even be scratched. Permalink
