This paper presents a frequency-independent reduction of the backscattering technique for stealth coating applications. Although the proper shape of the target may play a role in reduction of the backscattering as a goal, choosing absorbing materials having proper electrical and magnetic properties with a certain matching technique may achieve this goal. A ferrite-titanate material with thickness of 3 mm is suggested for coating a target with a technique explained in the paper to attain reduction in backscattering above 1 GHz. The proposed technique together with the material may find a good chance in stealth technology, for both military and non-military applications.
