Speaker: Dr Chris Lavers
This insightful talk looks at the technologies used in stealth warships and is rather aptly presented in the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth.
Stealth Warship Technology in Brief: Stealth technology is now considered a critical component within warship design. Many developing nations are now implementing their first generation of stealth technology military hardware. This talk will explore the extent of modern threats to warships and the modifications in naval architecture to counter them. Light is electromagnetic radiation we can see, an important factor in ship visibility, but it is only a small part of the full electromagnetic threat spectrum. Elsewhere on that spectrum you will find radar echoes, as well as thermal emissions from ship platforms that can make ships highly vulnerable to attack. This talk will consider the information currently available from public sources.
Chris Lavers is a lecturer in Marine Engineering and has taught Maritime and Remote Sensing topics at the University of Plymouth at Britannia Royal Naval College since 1993. He is Subject Matter Expert (Radar and Telecommunications) at BRNC Dartmouth and has authored 10 books and appeared on BBC Radio 4 The Material World Programme and BBC Radio Devon several times. He is also a member of the Institute of Physics Environmental Physics Committee and Convenor of the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Society’s Special Interest Group in Conservation and Indigenous Communities.
