That&rsquo;s $15.8 billion more than FY19, but $8 billion less than the President&rsquo;s request, according to Bloomberg Government.

The concept of RCS as the effective cross-sectional area of the target as seen by the radar will be discussed. It&rsquo;s measured in square meters (m2) or decibels above a square meter (dBm2). Alternatively, the RCS of a target can be considered to be the cross section of a metal sphere (in m2) yielding the same return amplitude as the target.&nbsp;The presentation will discuss the basics of RCS technology and the evolution of stealth technology over the past several years.&nbsp; Examples of modern operational stealthy platforms will be presented.</p> <p><strong>*Registration will close one hour prior to the start of the webinar (1pm ET)!
