These signatures make it difficult for the sophisticated defensive systems to detect, track and engage the B-2. Many aspects of the low-observability process remain classified; however, the B-2's composite materials, special coatings and flying-wing design all contribute to its "stealthiness."nThe B-2 is shaped to scatter radar waves rather than to reflect nthem back to their source, which would result in the bomber's detection. This is accomplished by a combination of curved surfaces and sawtooth nedges (such as the trailing edge of the wing), both of which bounce nradar waves away at an angle. Notice this combination of curved surfaces and sawtooth edges in this picture:n(The gold tinting of the cockpit canopy is a thin film transparent conductor that prevents radar waves from bouncing off unstealthy objects in the cockpit.)These sawtooth edges contribute towards a common technique on stealth aircraft, planform alignment: minimizing the number of different angles in the structure. If you look at a planform (top-down) view of the B-2, you'll notice that the sawtooth edges on the intake parallel the sawtooth edges of the wing leading and trailing edges. This has the effect of returning the radar signal at very specific angles, instead of a diffuse signal detectable at many angles. Even small structures, such as the landing gear and bomb bay doors, feature sawtooth edges with planform alignment:nnJet engine fan blades reflect radar waves well, so an important design consideration for stealth aircraft is hiding these fan blades from incoming radar waves; the B-2 accomplishes this by burying the engines in the fuselage and using S-shaped intake ducts. This arrangement also reduces noise, and because the exhausts are located above the fuselage and feature cooling vents, the infrared signature is low, particularly from below the aircraft.nExternal loads would greatly increase the radar cross-section, so all weapons and fuel are carried internally, unlike a B-52:nnAnd the flying wing (no tail) configuration greatly contributes to the low radar cross-section:nThe most efficient way to reflect radar waves back to the emitting radar is with orthogonal metal plates, forming a corner reflector consisting of either a dihedral (two plates) or a trihedral (three orthogonal plates). This configuration occurs in the tail of a conventional aircraft, where the vertical and horizontal components of the tail are set at right angles. Stealth aircraft such as the F-117 use a different arrangement, tilting the tail surfaces to reduce corner reflections formed between them. A more radical method is to eliminate the tail completely, as in the B-2 Spirit.( wikipedia.org/wiki/Stealth_technology#Vehicle_shape)What makes the B-2 stealth bomber stealthy?
