"Raptor" is wearing 600 pounds of invisible anti radar counterfeiting paint

[China paint information] the youth reference newspaper reported on July 14 that darrol Olsen, a former engineer of the U.S. Lockheed Martin company, revealed how the company ignored the problems of aircraft coating. After a few months, Olsen directly took Lo Ma to court. Olsen believes that the F-22 "Raptor" was tampered with during the anti radar test. In order to muddle through, Lockheed Martin applied an extra 600 pounds (about 272 kilograms) of coating on the fuselage. This unqualified coating will have a negative impact on the F-22

former engineer jieluo · will build a new factory to produce PPS (polyphenylene sulfide) composites in the Hungarian production base. According to the associated press 11, Olsen, a stealth technology engineer who has worked in Luoma company for many years, exposed that Luoma company violated the principles in the stealth test of F-22 fighter aircraft from September 1995 to June 1999, concealed the test results, and made the defective aircraft pass the test. Olsen once complained to his boss about the problems in the test, but his boss told him to "stand aside", and then the company fired him in 1999

Olsen said that in order to pass the stealth test of the U.S. air force, Lockheed Martin painted 600 pounds of anti radar paint on the surface of the "Raptor". The reason for doing so is that this anti radar paint is unqualified and will soon fall off the fuselage under the action of heat, oil and water. Olsen believes that this thick coating has endangered the speed and maneuverability of the aircraft, and the purpose is only to pass the test. For this reason, Olsen asked Lockheed Martin to pay US $50million for each of the 183 raptors, and asked the court to order Lockheed Martin to pay legal costs

Lockheed Martin's "full defense"

the small deformation of the AP report shows that Olsen's lawsuit began as early as October 2007, but it was not announced until this year. The federal court in Atlanta has taken over the case, and it is unclear when the final judgment will be hammered. Richard abrafia, an analyst at an aviation consulting agency, said that the F-22 had also been involved in disputes before, but it was the first time that the problem was resolved in the form of litigation

the U.S. Air Force has remained silent after learning of the lawsuit, but Lockheed Martin has made a high-profile statement that Olsen's statement is "worthless". Lockheed Martin said on its website that it would "fully defend itself". Defense analyst John Graham said, "the stealth coating of F-22 is the technical achievement made by Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Air Force with all their efforts, but some engineers can't tolerate any sand in the eyes of small technical problems. In addition, Olsen has left Lockheed Martin for 10 years, and F-22 has changed in many ways."

at the beginning of this year, US Secretary of Defense Gates proposed to stop production of F-2 insulation material testing machine. What are the characteristics? After the plane, both houses of Congress voted for this decision, but the decision to suspend production was strongly opposed by defense contractors and some members of Congress. Some analysts pointed out that killing Olsen halfway was a blow to contractors and lawmakers who opposed the suspension of F-22

is the paperback version of "Raptor" ready to go

despite such troubles, F-22 aircraft still participated in the Dubai international air show being held in the United Arab Emirates as promised. Many local people expect this advanced fighter to enter the Middle East market. However, as early as 1991, the FRP tensile testing machine was applicable to metal, adhesives, pipes, profiles, aerospace, petrochemical, waterproof coiled materials, wire and cable, textile, fiber, rubber, ceramics, food, pharmaceutical packaging, geotextile, film, wood, paper and other manufacturing industries and product quality supervision departments at all levels. Eight years ago, the U.S. Congress passed legislation and decided that in order to protect technical secrets, F-22 should not be exported to other countries. Now this export ban is facing some flexibility

on September 11, the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee passed the fiscal year 2010 defense authorization act, requiring the development of a "paperback" F-22 for export to meet the "urgent needs" of allies such as Japan, Israel and Australia. This fully proves that "continue to maintain the production of F-22" has a wide market in the United States

the problem is that the "paperback" F-22 is still a long way from the exit. From a legal point of view, if the United States wants to export F-22 aircraft, it must repeal, amend or circumvent the 1998 law, which will be a complex procedure in the United States. In addition, from a technical point of view, can the "paperback" F-22 be called "Raptor" after removing some advanced equipment? Will allies such as Japan, Israel and Australia accept this "paperback version"
