Electronic Weapons: December 5, 2000

Monitoring this disruption with special computer software would allow the flight of stealth aircraft to be tracked accurately. It is believed that the Serbs used a crude version of this technique in 1999 to shoot down a U.S. F-117 stealth bomber.

Since most nations now have cell phone networks, the survival of the stealth concept is in doubt.
