Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


III.K.04. Millimeter Wave Screening. By FY98, demonstrate the capability of obscurant materials to block or defeat enemy RSTA assets in the millimeter wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Exit criteria will include defeat of actual or simulated threat radar, reduction of logistics burden via RAM improvements, and reduction of environmental impact due to degradability of the materials. By FY95, demonstrate a MMW screening material that degrades to non-harmful residues after completing its intended mission. By FY96, conduct modeling and simulations of MMW screening defeat mechanism of smart weapons.

Supports: This technology supports the Multispectral Expendable Obscurant Generating System and the XM56 MMW Module P3I.
