South Korea's Agency for Defense Development (ADD) announced on 23 November that it has developed a new conformal antenna design to improve the low-visibility profile of stealth aircraft.
The agency said in a statement that it had succeeded in locally developing a small conformal antenna, which is optimised to stealth aircraft's airframe design and which will help reduce an aircraft's radar cross-section, thus making it less detectable by enemy radars.
ADD noted that the new technology was developed in collaboration with Hanwha Systems under a four-year project launched by South Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration in 2017.
