Decoys and Targets

ILC Dover has developed and manufactured a variety of inflatable decoys and targets for space applications. Our advancements in specialized materials and membrane joining techniques have enabled us to create numerous shapes with precision.  We have the capability to produce or modify flight proven materials that will meet optical, radar, or thermal signature requirements .

The primary benefits of using an inflatable:

  • Compact stowing for launch
