Lockheed Martin’s state-of-the-art painting process for the F-35 JSF

Lockheed Martin F-35 Painting Process

Lockheed Martin has developed the most advanced painting facility in the world.
It was created for one single purpose: To make the F-35 Lighting II almost invisible
to radar.

The facility uses a low observable painting process using laser guides to apply
radar absorbent composites to joint strike fighter. The robotic laser guides and
paint guns use an infra-red grid to triangulate their position in relation to the aircraft.
