In connection with purchase of the DCMS software tool and a desire to better understand the use, capabilities, assumptions, and technical limitations of the software, ARA has created a 1 hour web-based training session to better understand how to use the tool. The web based training must be viewed with a web browser and will expire after 7 days.

Applied Research Associates, Berriehill Research Division redeveloped legacy Low Observable Course materials through the Ohio State University DMAP program. The purpose of this ARA subcontract was to recreate professional short courses for the Ohio Defense Market. The revised 2019 Short Course has the following characteristics:

(1) There are no classified materials presented in this short course version. All materials are Unclassified-Distribution D.

(2) References to open literature sources were to be made wherever possible.

(4) A new section was specifically developed based on available open-source literature through the USAF Museum for the final lab day of the course.

ARA's BerrieHill Research Division is excited to offer this professional short course entitled "Fundamentals of Low Observable Technologies." The unclassified teaching materials for this course draw upon decades of inputs from scientists and engineers who were involved with the development and fielding of LO systems. Previous versions of this course were taught within DoD from 1989 to 2006, and in 2016 The Ohio State University sponsored a significant revision and update to the course materials. In its present form, this professional short course will provide any engineer or scientist a multidisciplinary introduction and history of the development and fielding of Low Observable technologies.

There are 19 course segments, including a review of Electromagnetic and radar fundamentals, Radar Cross Section (RCS) concepts, and absorbing materials properties and their measurements. The course also covers other observable signatures (infrared, visual, and acoustic), as well as a comprehensive integration of LO concepts in airframe design.

The course culminates in a focused tour of 6-8 relevant air vehicles in the National Museum of the US Air Force. This course is especially relevant to newer engineers who must understand LO technologies if they are involved with designing, producing, flying, or maintaining LO vehicles..

The course materials are UNCLASSIFIED Distribution D and no classified materials will be provided.
