BZ200 is a novel, high-performance, thin, lightweight, polarization-insensitive, and wide-angle metamaterial RF absorber. It absorbs up to 99% of electromagnetic waves from 1 to 18 GHz (L to Ku band) as well as 35 and 94 GHz, without scatter. It is tailor made to order for applications of any dimension.
BZ200 enhances battlefield assets’ survivability and protection through reduction/modification of its Radar/IR signature. It has also been tailored for solutions for RFI/EMI, and EMC.
BZ200 can be retrofitted/integrated to conceal mobile/stationary land/marine vehicles and significantly reduce detection ranges with low-observable characteristics | Improve (E3) system interoperability by suppressing interferences | Shield personnel from RF radiation of active IED jamming equipment or active radar antennae during installations/diagnostics.
Thickness*: 3.2mm to 7.2mm [ 1/8 inch to 9/32 inch ]
Weight*: 0.6 kg/m2 to 1.3 kg/m2 [ 2 oz/ft2 to 4.25 oz/ft2 ]
* Core material without exterior envelop. Varies based on spec.
Due to its material composition and construction, BZ200 will inherently reduce the IR signature of the covered object.
