Abstract

One platform that is currently highly developed as an air defense technology is the Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV) which is a UAV system equipped with a weapon system or has combat capabilities. In this study, the UCAV concept was developed with the aim of having a stealth or low observability aspect by being shown to have a low Radar Cross Section (RCS) value. And in this paper the UCAV model developed is a generic UCAV configuration developed by the NATO STO/AVT-161 task group, namely SACCON UCAV. The SACCON UCAV is also goal-oriented typical of low observability with a combination of high agility and high Angle of Attack (AoA) capabilities. The results of the SACCON UCAV design were then analyzed by the RCS value using the SBR method using the Ansys HFSS software. And the results of the RCS calculation show that the SACCON UCAV model has a low RCS value and the RCS value can be reduced again by shaping the UCAV configuration.
