Nano-Paint Turns Any Aircraft Stealth...

....Sometimes all it takes is just a fresh coat of paint.

At least that is what an Israeli nanotech company called Nanoflight says. They claim they have created a paint that can make planes, missiles, drones and other aircraft invisible to radar.
The company says it has completed an initial test run and found that missiles painted with its proprietary nano-paint are very difficult to detect with radar. The paint doesn't make aircraft disappear completely from radar instruments, but it is disruptive enough that it is very hard for equipment to register their signatures as incoming war craft.
Another bonus to this nano-paint is that it could protect buildings from radiation caused by high-energy power lines... don't you wish you had that growing up as a kid??
