BAE Systems is hoping to put a new spin on the security blanket.(credit: BAE Systems)The company, which is increasingly seeing its fortunes tied to the ground vehicles business, has unveiled what it calls a "stealth overcoat." The covering is designed to suppress the vehicle's radar and thermal signature, as well as providing camouflage to reduce the visual signature.
