IIT Mandi researchers develop tech which can blur out army equipment

Being invisible to radar is a crucial defence strategy and the ability to evade radar detection can reduce the chances of being targeted by enemy weapons. Any technique that makes things invisible to radar can also be used in the commercial sector to reduce radiation leakages from buildings and make them more secure. For example, invisibility to radar can also be used in private or covert establishments for the protection of information and privacy.

The technology by IIT Mandi can be used to cover windows or glass panels of stealth vehicles and covert establishments that must be invisible to radar. (AFP File/Representational image)
