14 Dec Study of the effects of opto-deflection by video-fuselage transduction in tactical military maneuvers.
From the Marvel production, Spiderman Homecoming, the pilots activate at night the opto-deflection system of the Tony Stark’s cargo maneuvering over the city of New-York. In reality, the luminance of 200 to 90,000 Cd / m² emitted by the OLED faces at night time would makes his plane look like a Texas drive-in screen. Actually, experiments carried trough the areal visual servoing thus falsifies this an alluring perspective reserved for the cinema.

Symbiotic enslavement carries in its heart a function of assistance to the reflexes of its holder.
The hypothesis made at the present time is that this function could improve the intricacy of the forecasting model in its environmental impact.
During my research in 2011, I developed a patented model to stimulate primary video sequences from bioluminescent organs integrating the fuselage of an aeronef, the objective being to validate with the aid of this one that an artificial agent included in an Elisa protocol allows to use its model of the world to decide which actions (here light signals) it must execute in order to maximize the performance of its wearer.

General information on opto-deflection
The physical principle of invisibility camouflage is based on the interaction between an observer with the naked eye (usually an opponent) and a monitored device generating a mimetic image substituting for the real perspective of a substrate. These interactions are created within a substrate having a treatment that give it photo-emitting properties such as electroluminescence. The selective propagation of light waves to the surface of fuselage modifies its optical properties: it causes a periodic deflection of the optical refractive index of its substrate, leading to the creation of an occulting “mimetic network”.
According to the principle laid down in 2011 by the Elisa protocol, an opto-deflector component is composed of an OLED fabric whose optical faces of efferences benefit from an anti-reflective coating to reduce optical losses. In the cabin take place the video-electric transducer and axons for the fabric excitation. Different physical detection layers are interposed between the transducer evaluation system and the optical faces in order to facilitate the coupling of the mimetic images according to the observers.
The transducers (formally symbiote) are enslaved by a reinforcement planning and learning algorithm (typically Google A.I.) itself interconnected to its environment by remote symbiotes.

Stealth, a key element of Tactical Airborne Operations
Tactical flight is the art of using the resources of the terrain. If the flight line and enemy positions are separated by a hill, the helicopter can maintain a low altitude and remain out of sight.
Forests and even buildings can be thrown on the cabin in order to mask it, totally or partially, depending on the angles of view of the opponents. Clouds and their shadows can be put to good use. A helicopter projecting both the wooded area over its top and a cloudy sky at its base is more difficult to see than a machine without an optical deflector.
A well-camouflaged military drone is difficult to spot over a terrain with which it can be confused, but under the sun its shadow will be detached in a visible way on the ground.
This drawback can be attenuated by very low flying, so that the aircraft partly conceals its shadow, although in some cases, and particularly in the desert, this presents other problems such as lifting a cloud sand or encounter an Orion-type portable anti-remote gun. But the effects of the optical stealth for air units should also guide the offensive air-to-air tactical maneuvers.
Rotating wings against fixed wings perfect model
Helicopter and rotative wings drone do not have sufficient performance to rise frontally against a fighter jet; The probability of survive of the first one during a defensive engagement is predominant. An air victory is only a bonus. The best way to escape is to avoid being discovered. By force of circumstances, a rotating sail flies lower than the fighter jet; The advantage is therefore on the side of the helicopter which can locate the aircraft before being itself located.
When a fighter jet is spotted, the helicopter or drone pilot must then adopt the attitude of the infantry and must therefore seek to be confused with the battlefield, activate the opto-deflector mode and hide behind hills, buildings or any shelter present. All this to avoid confrontation. If it is surprised completely uncovered, it is necessary to modify the course and to go in a direction directly opposite to that of the hunter. This maneuver can be effective because it involves only a slight relative movement of the mimetic image ( the relative movement is certainly what attracts the fold the eyes ). The chances of going unnoticed are good because the fighter pilot will be concerned not only by the accomplishment of his mission but also by the possible presence of enemy aircraft.
When the hunter maneuvers to attack, the first goal is to force him to stick as hard as possible in order to reduce his time of alignment and increase his rate of fall. Moreover, the fact of running on him, while remaining low, all the weapons of the helicopter are also oriented on the assailant.
In a privileged scheme at 500 knots ( 925 km/h ), an approach angle of 10 ° ( which remains rather low ) gives a rate of descent of 45 m/s. When approaching the helicopter, not only will the fighter jet rapidly lose altitude but his dive angle and downhill speed will continue to increase. The maneuvers he will have to take to follow his target ( which of course will not stay in a straight line ) will only complicate things. Indeed, when the fighter jet manages to recover, the helicopter must not be there where it is expected. When the hunter is then at 1500 meters, the stealth helicopter can get rid of its extra altitude by sticking or slipping. For the hunter, the helicopter will come out of its target. If this maneuver can put the helicopter under cover, it is perfect; In any case, the fighter jet pilot has the choice between stitching more, in which case the ground gets closer at high speed and in a complicated aerodynamic configuration or else it stops fighting. In this way, the chances of survival of the helicopter are estimated to be nearly 95% above the mainland and 70% above the water.

Rotative wings vs rotative wings perfect model
It is a proven fact that the best anti helicopter machine remains the specially equipped helicopter for this particular mission led by a sailing crew trained for this kind of exercise. It should be able to fight an attacking helicopter/drone in its stealth environment.
On some sides, tactics of air combat between helicopters recall those of the era of the biplanes; The speed and turning rate are essentially the same, the basic training will consist of two helicopters flying side by side for mutual protection and altitude will be an advantage when the confrontation will begin.
In a predictive model of advanced stealth, there will be ambushes and take advantage of the surprise effect. Thermal detectors offer the best target search alternative for the primal weapon of the rotary wings, the barrel. However, the combat break will be difficult to achieve, the speed of the both machines being substantially equivalent. When a drone battle begins, it ends only if both pilots want it. No chance of escaping.
It should be noted that the simulated combat between helicopters and / or drone only last a few minutes and always take place at very short distance. As in fights between planes, the opponents try to position themselves so as to be able to fire without being worried, which usually means at six hours and preferably in altitude.
